Streetcat Bob’s new book is the purrfect Christmas gift

Woodley’s boutique independent bookstore, Chapter One, which is situated on the main shopping precinct was overrun with kitty calamity today as James Bowen and his furry friend Streetcat Bob made a guest appearance to sign copies of their new book, entitled “A Gift From Bob”.

People had flocked to Woodley from all across the South East of England, some people queueing since 7:30am! Members of the public stood patiently in the queue; some having travelled from Essex, London, Devizes, Bournemouth and further down the South East coastline.

No one, however, had travelled as far as one lucky couple who were had come to Woodley during their honeymoon stay in the UK.

Korean newlyweds Hoseok Kuk and his wife Gyeong-Jiu Han had purchased three books; one for each of them and the third copy to be signed by James and Bob for their two family cats back home in Korea!

The book, A Gift From Bob, is available from Chapter One Book Store. To find out more or to order a copy, visit their website at
