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).
