About the Author

HIRO ARIKAWA lives in Tokyo. A bestseller in Japan, THE TRAVELLING CAT CHRONICLES has become an unexpected international hit, and is due to be made into a live-action Japanese film.


Fleet, funny and tender... Arikawa clearly knows cats as well as any human can. * TIME *
A book about kindness and love, and about how the smallest things can provide happiness * Stylist *
Arikawa has a lightness of touch that elevates this to a tale about loyalty and friendship ... while speaking to our basic human need for companionship -- JOHN BOYNE * Irish Times *
Prepare to have your heart strings tugged by this quirky tale . . . It's a deceptively gentle story that you won't need to be a cat lover to fall for. * Sunday Mirror *
Sweet, sad and lovely, this is a roadtrip novel with a difference * Psychologies Magazine *
Heart-wrenching but uplifting * Red Magazine *
The Travelling Cat Chronicles is why I read books. This beautiful story has everything. It's funny, heart-warming, heart-breaking and kind. * Foreword Books *
This is the book I am giving everyone . . . the book I am recommending to anyone buying something Japan-related or cat-related, and, quite possibly, the book I am placing in someone's hand when they ask me what my favourite book is. For a bookseller, that is the highest accolade a book can ever receive. -- Cat McMillan * Waterstones York, Bookseller *
Stunningly beautiful. Tender, warm, sad and uplifting * The Last Word Review *
A beautiful travelogue * Sydney Morning Herald *
This story of a cat, a man, self-sacrifice and friendship will have you totally captivated ... An addictive tale of friendship and love. * Woman's Weekly, Australia *
I would urge people not to dismiss this as a 'cat book'; it is too much about human interaction and relationships to be so simply defined. A novel with wide appeal. I predict it will make a popular Christmas gift. * Readings, Australian Independent bookshop guide *
The Travelling Cat Chronicles is as much a loving tribute to Japan's obsession with and reverence for cats as it is an endearing introduction for non-Japanese readers to the country's ever-fascinating culture and deeply rooted traditions. -- Alexis Burling * San Francisco Chronicle *
I'm not ashamed to say it had me at meow. * Washington Post *
A book that stands out within the world of cat literature ... and it's a world worth exploring. * Time *
I found myself sobbing ... unable, unwilling, to let this little book go. * NPR *
A book that speaks volumes about our need for connection - human, feline or otherwise. * San Francisco Chronicle *
This touching novel of a brave cat and his gentle, wise human will resonate with lovers of animal tales, quiet stories of friendship, and travelogues alike. * Publishers Weekly *
A delight to read * Financial Times *
