I Am Maru

I Am Maru Cover

 

Staff Pick

It is embarrassing how much I've been looking forward to this book. If you're even remotely fond of cats and aren't yet familiar with Maru, you're in for a treat. His contortionist antics have delighted YouTube viewers the world over, and while some really must be seen to be believed (such as Maru attempting to wriggle/flop/propel his body into increasingly smaller boxes — with mixed results), this book is nonetheless guaranteed to make you crack a smile (and might just crack you up).
