Maru the cat is many things: lover of boxes, tambourine player, Internet celebrity.

Every great life deserves to be chronicled, and Maru’s has been, many times over, through posts on his blog and videos on his YouTube channel (which has racked up 113,896,060 views to date). The Scottish Fold from Japan even has two books, the first of which has been translated to English for his many international fans. Click ahead to get a sneak peek of photos from the book!

I Am Maru takes readers inside the lives of Maru and his owner mugumogu, peeking into boxes, boxes, more boxes, and even the occasional trash can. 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!

I Am Maru will be released on Aug. 23 and is available now for pre-order.
