About the Book
Bob the apartment cat wants to be a jungle cat. He spends his days visiting the friendly humans in his apartment building and pretending that he is exploring a jungle in each of their unique residences. Then he returns to his human Pippa, and they enjoy reading books together.
One day Bob hears someone say their city is a jungle, and he decides that he must explore it. He ends up in some danger during his adventure, but luckily, he has a lot of human friends who are quick to rescue him when he calls out for help.
Jungle Cat is one of the most beautifully illustrated children’s books. Each page will give you reason to stop and explore all the creativity that makes it come alive. The story itself encourages young readers to find their inner sense of adventure, while still remembering when to ask for help.
Just like Bob, young readers will enjoy exploring the apartments of the friendly neighbors and searching for all the hidden details on each page.
Jungle Cat encourages kids to dive deep into their own neighborhoods and see what adventures might be lurking right next door.

As a member of the American Booksellers Association, we have access to an endless inventory of great titles. Explore the world with our curated collection of travel books for the whole family. Every purchase supports our ongoing work to inspire kids through virtual and real-world travel!
At Travelnitch, we create opportunities for shared learning, so parents and children can explore the world together.
We deliver new and exciting experiences to encourage dialogue and provoke curiosity. For that reason, we have three primary goals: – Strengthen the bond between parent and child through a shared love of travel. – Forge a more meaningful connection between kids and the world around them. – Promote creative learning to inspire a lifelong passion for exploration.
Travel plays such an important role in our lives. It has the ability to change us for the better. It’s an experiential education that teaches us how to feel, think, act, and react in positive ways. Travel fosters creativity, builds confidence, and teaches us all to be more tolerant. My own kids benefit from travel every time we hit the open road. No amount of money can buy those life lessons.
Travelnitch is inspiring the next generation of explorers. We believe travel is a wonderful way to ignite the imagination and get kids excited about the world. However, we need your help to make this possible. Please spread the word and support our efforts to raise citizens of the world. Let’s go on this adventure together!
