"My Name is Bob which is geared for young children and is smartly told from the point of view of Bob the cat! My Name is Bob makes a wonderful gift for any young child, it is fun to read, entertaining and well illustrated. It is a story of hope and perseverance that will be sure to engage and inspire a young person. I also appreciate that the story brings awareness to the plight of stray cats by highlighting real life challenges they face on the street, making it a positive tool for teaching kids about compassion towards animals."
