This week’s Book of the Week is A Streetcat Named Bob, by James Bowen. Fittingly, our theme this week is cats, so we have put together a list of feline-centred novels for you to flick through and enjoy!
Cat Spitting Mad, by Shirley Rousseau Murphy
If you’re looking for a more contemporary adult read, try Shirley Rousseau Murphy’s Cat Spitting Mad; a humorous take on the crime genre narrated by felines. When Joe Grey and Ducie’s preferred target for their harmless pranks is charged with a murder he did not commit, the two cats must do everything in their power to save him.

Warriors: Into the Wild, by Erin Hunter
Erin Hunter’s beloved fantasy series tells the story of four clans of forest-dwelling wild cats, living by the laws passed down to them from their ancestors.

But despite his background, Rusty may turn out to be the fiercest Warrior of them all…
