An indoor cat brings a community together after his dreams of exploring the outside world quickly go awry.

Bob is an orange tabby cat with big dreams. He lives in a safe and friendly apartment building with his human, Pippa, but Bob knows he is more than an indoor cat—he's a Jungle Cat! When he sneaks outside to chase after his dream, Bob's adventure suddenly gets too wild. It's a good thing jungle cats know when to ask for help!

Vibrantly illustrated with playful depictions of city and apartment life, this is the delightful story of an over-confident cat who learns about the comforts of community and home.
