About the Author
Dean Nicholson was a manual labourer in his hometown of Dunbar, Scotland, when he set off in September 2018 to cycle around the globe. While cycling through the mountains south of Bosnia, he came across a scrawny grey-and-white kitten that had been scampering along the road, trying to keep up with his bike. This was the start of an unusual friendship, as the newly named Nala joined Dean on his travels.

Dean documented their adventures together on Instagram as @1bike1world, picking up not just hundreds and thousands of followers, but also attention from news media all over the world. Now at almost 750k followers, Dean and Nala have already travelled through Bosnia, Greece, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey and been on the road together for hundreds and thousands of miles for just a little over ten months.

Nala's World is Dean's first book, and tells the story of how they met and their adventures on the road.
Reviews
"There are moments of tension, like when Nala can't be found for a whole morning, and profundity . . . The writing is more like people you just met at a hostel telling you about their travels after a few pints. . . Nicholson is at his best when he tells the story of a man finding a sense of purpose from an unlikely (and adorable) source...charming."--New York Times Book Review
"Charming."--USA Today
"A gorgeous book . . . complete with photos that will melt your heart."--The U.S. Sun
"Feel-good... who doesn't love a good story about a cat who travels the world."--Bicycling Magazine
"Charming."--New York Post
