This is the second Maru book I've purchased from Amazon.jp, and it's as good if not better than the first. The author, mugumogu, who is also Maru's person, has selected wonderful and charming photos of Maru and captioned them in such a way that we get to see into this incredible cat's life a bit more fully than we do on his blog or his YouTube videos. The video selections are great as well. If you buy this original printing, you also get a bonus Maru fan! Highly recommended for anyone who loves Maru, or who loves cats but has yet to meet Mr. Maru.
If you already know and love Maru, this book and it's accompanying DVD are great and leave you wanting more. If you are a fan of cats in general, Maru is a charmer to be sure. If you don't like cats, Maru will challenge you to change your mind. His love of life is infectious. His personality, enormous. His creativity at finding ways to enjoy himself seems never ending. At our house, our mornings start with a peek at Maru's blog because we know he will have something for us to laugh at, always a nice way to begin the day. The book is added fun.
