HBL Note: This book was an instant International Bestseller and I am excited for its debut in the United States. Originally written in Japanese, The Travelling Cat Chronicles has been translated by Philip Gabriel who has won awards for his translations. I love stories about the bond between people and their pets, probably because my love for my own dog runs so deep. I am also on the lookout for books that will help us all remember that there are really good people in the world, and that life is beautiful. This is a really short read that even the busiest of readers will have time to enjoy.

From the publisher:

A life-affirming anthem to kindness and self-sacrifice, The Travelling Cat Chronicles shows how the smallest things can provide the greatest joy.

We take journeys to explore exotic new places and to return to the comforts of home, to visit old acquaintances and to make new friends. But the most important journey is the one that shows us how to follow our hearts . . . 

An instant international bestseller, The Travelling Cat Chronicles has charmed readers around the world. With simple yet descriptive prose, this novel gives voice to Nana the cat and his owner, Satoru, as they take to the road on a journey with no other purpose than to visit three of Satoru's longtime friends. Or so Nana is led to believe . . . 

With his crooked tail--a sign of good fortune--and adventurous spirit, Nana is the perfect companion for the man who took him in as a stray. And as they travel in a silver van across Japan, with its ever-changing scenery and seasons, they will learn the true meaning of courage and gratitude, of loyalty and love.
