Superficially this seems to be a simply told story about the wanderings of a cat and his master. But the delicacy, the love and affection that seeps through makes it something more. Not forgetting the cheeky voice of Nana the cat to counterbalance the sadness. With the future in mind Satoru delves into the past, and meets up with old friends. It’s a long time since I read such a moving story.
