Image of bookcover for A Streetcat Named BobBeing a cat fan, I had to read James Bowen's Book, A Street Cat Named Bob and How He Saved My Life. Dog fans might like it too because it shows what a difference having an animal in our lives can make.

Bob helps James to quit his drug habit and quit living on the streets of London. James found Bob hungry, dirty and generally in bad shape while he was performing as a busker (street musician).

The All-American Girls' Professional Baseball League was founded in 1943, when most of the men of baseball-playing age were far away in Europe and Asia fighting World War II. The league flourished until after World War II, when, with the men's return, the league was consigned to oblivion. Director Penny Marshall and screenwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel re-create the wartime era when women's baseball appeared to stand a good chance of sweeping the country.
