Amidst all the doom and gloom in the news was this flicker of light – a publishing sensation!
Bob the underground tube station cat and his bestest human friend James, have landed a brilliant publishing deal with big name publishers Hodder and Stoughton.
The book A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets of London will be out next year 2012 and chronicles how James nursed a stray injured kitty (he later called Bob) to health and how both have been inseparable since.
(source)Bob comes with James everyday to help him sell The Big Issue (a magazine sold to enable homeless people to earn a legitimate income) outside Angel underground tube station.
Their story with lots of links, clips, pics may be found here.
Normally I feel most envious about publishing sensations reported in the news (I'm only human!) but this is one news item I really really love! I wish Bob and James - he has a doggy too - all the best for a bright and brilliant future!
Charlie says: I help you write your book once I find how to turn this machine on.
Have a great weekend!
