Product Description

Review

“Say goodbye to Hello Kitty and hello to Maru...the elegant book of full-color photos captures the magic that is Maru.” (USA Today)

“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)

From the Back Cover

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.

Format: Hardcover
I love it, and have read it over and over, if only to look at the pictures of Maru. He looks SO MUCH like a cat I once had for 19 years,and that I still miss very much. When I first was aware of Maru I was amaze on how much my cat and him had so many things in common. They could be brothers. :o
I recommend the book to all cat lovers.

Everybody knows that cats are the official animal of the internet and Maru is its crown prince. This book brings together lovely screenshots from his Youtube chronicles and reveals behind-the-scenes secrets about this fascinating feline. The only disappointment is that Maru's owner says that he doesn't like being picked up held. Makes a great gift for any cat enthusiast.

A little disappointing Aug. 23 2011
By Wylietown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a big Maru fan, so I was excited when the English version of the first Maru book came out. It's not a bad book, but three distinct things disappointed me about it:

1) It's small. For some reason I was expecting something a little bigger, like maybe a coffee table book. This is like a handbook.
2) LOTS of repeat content from the popular web clips. I was expecting more original photographs.
3) Not a big surprise that there is repeat content from the web clips, but the content that is repeated, as well as most of the pictures in the book, appear grainy and from a lower resolution source than a normal book you'd find in a bookstore - makes the book seem cheap.

In its defense, it wasn't overpriced and I feel like I got what I paid. I would recommend it only to dedicated Maru fans, who will delight at anything that has to do with this cat. Those that are on the fence or aren't that familiar with him should avoid.

Show your love Aug. 27 2011
By L. Bush - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Purchasing this book is the best way to thank mugumogu for sharing The Wonderful Maru with the world, for free on the interwebz. If you're a Maru fan and your budget will allow it, please buy a copy. I love mine for the young-Maru photos and the floor plan of his house.

Best Kitty Ever Aug. 25 2011
By ILoveMaru - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you're a fan of Maru, you will love this - kitten pictures, new high definition photography, and the cover comes off to become a poster. Very happy with the $10 bucks I spent on this.

Great Cat in a great book Oct. 16 2011
By Annushka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a genuine treasure. She is a brilliant photographer. Maru was already a star. Cats are notoriously uncooperative when it comes to having their pictures taken so to get this many perfect shots there has to be a lot of bad ones. I have looked at it many time so far & will look at it many times more. Most definitely worth the price.

Super Cute! Aug. 26 2011
By J. Dalton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I couldn't be happier with this book unless a Maru clone came with it. The book is 94 pages and approximately 7.5 inches by 8 inches. There are many cute captions to go along with the high quality photos. The bonus poster was a nice surprise. Thanks mugumogu, please keep the books, pictures, and videos coming.
