Meet Maru! This round, adorable Scottish Fold cat may be an
internet sensation, but he knows how to keep his celebrity status
from going to his fluffy head . . . mostly. Maru and his owner,
mugumogu, give readers a peek into the low-key life of the
world's most famous cat. See all his favorite hiding
places--trash cans, cupboards, cereal boxes . . . if it's cozy,
he's there--meet his treasured toys, and learn what it means to
wield just the right amount of cat-titude.
In Japanese Maru means circle or round, but to millions around the
world Maru means an adorable (and yes, rather round) male Scottish
Fold cat with a love for charging and diving head first into
cardboard boxes, drawers and trashcans. For the first time, this
four color picture book with text in English and Japanese from
Marus owner will be available to an eagerly awaiting American
"I Am Maru takes readers inside the lives of Maru and his owner mugumogu, peeking into boxes, boxes, more boxes...With his big, round eyes and white-glove paws, Maru finds a way to burrow inside anything-and don't be surprised if one of those places is your heart!"--People.com
mugumogu is the username of Maru's owner. She lives in Japan.
