'Curiosity is more than just a desire to discover. It's a lifestyle, and a purrvilege. It's hours of observing a fly on the wall. It's entering the sock drawer just before it closes. It's sniffing the lampshade one more time . . .'

Such is the wisdom of Curious Zelda: social media star, agony aunt, yoga teacher, cat. In The Adventures of a Curious Cat she details her escapa

I have been following Curious Zelda on Twitter for quite a while, and she is easily one of my favourite accounts. So, when I found out that she had a book, I knew that I had to read/listen to it. I was not disappointed.

I honestly had so much fun with this Audible listen; Curious Zelda had me laughing out loud many times with her clever wittiness.

As for the narration, Georgia Maguire provided the perfect (or purrfect?) voice for this witty feline.

Overall, I have no complaints whatsoever about Th
Meet Zelda, internet famous cat and supercutie!

First up a big thanks for my hubby for giving me this one as a birthday present! I love Zelda, see her daily tweets pop by, and I had to have this book when I saw it come out. It looked adorable, fun, hilarious, and cattastic.

In this book we get to meet Zelda, the internet famous cat with her huge startled/derpy eyes. We see her go on a dating site, first in the hopes of netting some yummy fishes, second dating with some hot cats in the neighbourhoo

For a book about Zelda, it didn't have nearly enough Zelda in it. It needs more Zelda pictures and poems! ...more

I follow Zelda on twitter so when the book came out I was super eager to get it and I was not disappointed in any way

It came on a Tuesday and by Wednesday I had it all read just couldn't put it down.

I expected it would be a whole bunch of photos and some poetry but it was poetry and stories that kept me pretty entertained.

Who knew a cat could be so witty and have such an amazing perspective on us humans.

So it's well worth it's price and your time.

Writing this review for my cats, Persephone and Ozzie whose paws keep pushing extra keys when they try to write their review. They ordered this book after following Curious Zelda for quite some time on Twitter. When it arrived, it was even better than they expected. It's witty, the essays show off her sassy personality, and the poems as always are spot on purrfect. The whole thing is rounded out with pictures of the star herself and many drawings. We could not be more impressed or entertained wi ...more

Cute and sweet--nice to have as a pick me up book that you read a few pages of when you're feeling down, or for a younger reader. Not exactly a book you sit down and read straight through, but it isn't meant to be. If you're most interested in pictures and poems by Zelda, her Twitter is the place to go ...more

Such an awesome book! Zeldas owner has written so many poems, stories and quips. The book is bigger than you think, and is so entertaining.

I’m so happy I bought this book!

This book is a delightful diversion from the depressing political and social climate! Quick little sections that you can read whenever time permits. Adorable graphics too!

Such a lovely light hearted read, if my cats wrote a book then this is what they'd put! Perfectly captures a typical cats behaviour.

Hoping for a sequel from Zelda.

If you need more Zelda in addition to her social media, this is a must read!
Full of cat puns!

It is cute, creative and funny. Maybe the problem is me; as a Twitter fan I was expecting more poetry and pictures and less text. I loved the graphic part. I only wish there was more.

Let me tell you Zelda is one witty floof. From ways to train your human to cat exercise routines that include scaling the curtains, Zelda tells all. My two black cats, Mario and Luigi, are getting way too many good pointers in their young years. This is a great gift for cat lovers out there or a treat to buy for yourself. This book is now our sole coffee table book - the cats are very proud to have it displayed.

I’ve been following Zellie’s adventures on Twitter for quite some time. Her ability to assess her surroundings and so eloquently create beautiful humorous poetry is unprecedented. This book was certainly no disappointment.
My cat and I have been fighting over who gets to read it but we’ve both thoroughly enjoyed it several times now! Zelda is the next literary genius-human or a feline. This book will just make you so happy.

A truly pawesome book! Curious Zelda shares her infinite wisdom about all things cat and human. It's witty and clever, and so much fun to read. Beautiful illustrations, exquisite poetry, insightful stories and many more await you in this compelling read.

I would highly recommend this purrchase! :)

I have been following Curious Zelda on Instagram and was so excited to order her book. I love the little poems, accompanied by clever drawings and descriptions of Zelda's life with her humans.
Zelda's startled expression is endearing, and her story is so fun. I highly recommend this book for humans, little humans, and cats. My cat Yuki Delight is a big fan of Zelda.

If you follow Curious Zelda, you already know what the best part about this book is; pictures of the world's least dignified tuxedo demonstrating the thousand ways one can be startled, stunned, shocked and awed by the world, accompanied by suitably poetic description.

Obviously, you can't fill a book with that, so they've added a variety of other poetry and prose sections including a diary, how-tos and instructionals, recollections, musings, and even some dating app misadventures (which I may hav

This is a book written by a curios cat named Zelda. She's a social media star who decided to expand on her ever popular poems in this book, The Adventures of a Curious Cat. In this book, Zelda shares lengthier poems, cat news, advice for cats, diary entries, and adventures in dating, plus more.

I adored this book. I made sure to read it in small sections to make it last as long as possible. This book was not at all what I was expecting! I figured it'd be a book of poems and pictures, similar to h

My boss turned this on as an audiobook for us on a recent business trip. I know and love Zelda and follow her on Twitter. This book was pretty much just bad puns and not funny humor. Maybe would have preferred in a physical form to see pictures or something I don't know. ...more

Both my tuxedo cat Moya and I thoroughly enjoyed this masterpiece. Zelda is a witty, engaging writer and it was such a delight to see Moya relate to the content so much.
