Reviews of The Expatriate Siamese
Independent press comment
This review appeared in The Lady
We are given a cat’s eye view of the world. Narrated by Tia Maria, a
beautiful chocolate-point female, who goes to live on Majorca with her
owners, this is a near factual account. The move causes Tia Maria to undergo
a complete personality change and to develop much closer emotional links
with her human family. She has many adventures from which she somehow always
emerges as the heroine. This is a charming tale for cat fanciers and those
who, in their heart of hearts, know that the feline mind is far more
advanced than the human!

If you enjoy books that are narrated by cats, then this is for you. It will
also appeal to those who are familiar with the complex personalities of
Siamese cats. Tia-Maria, a self-centred chocolate point, has a change of
character when she becomes an over-possessive mother to her son, Ziggy. They
are inseparable, but Ziggy’s boisterousness and quest for independence bring
dire consequences.You will need to read this charming book to find out what
happens when Tia Maria emigrates with her owners to Mallorca.

You were kind enough to send me a copy of the book The Expatriate Siamese by
Pamela Legge.which I thoroughly enjoyed. The book was excellent and the
illustrations were delightful. I do hope that you will let me know if Mrs
Legge decides to write any more books about her Siamese.

"I wish to congratulate the author as she has
managed to combine an extremely accurate description of our island,
including our customs, history, gastronomy etc., with all the necessary
up-to-date information of a good guide book... We see this book as
excellent promotion of Mallorca...We shall certainly recommend it whenever
Young, The Times
"The title says it all. Enjoying Mallorca by
Pamela Legge is not a matter-of-fact, flatly written guidebook, but a
personal memoir of a long-lasting love affair with an island. It really is
full of enjoyment. ... Mallorca is well served by tourist literature, but
this is a welcome, distinctive and highly readable addition."
