Overview



This year, the world’s favorite cat faces his biggest series of challenges yet, as he takes on the whole globe!


With over 360 million hits on YouTube, Simon’s Cat is a genuine word-of-mouth phenomenon. Fans from all over the world have fallen for this adorable but anarchic feline who will do just about anything to be fed. Simon Tofield’s beautiful drawings and warm humor come alive on the page in this irresistibly charming book—an outgrowth of the enormously popular short films featured on YouTube.

Simon’s Cat proved his authority in the house. He returned victorious from his adventures beyond the garden fence. He prevailed after the chaotic arrival of a new kitten in Simon’s Cat in Kitten Chaos. Now he takes on the world! Illustrated in glorious full color, this volume explodes from the page with mesmerizing levels of detail.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/09/2013
Simon’s white cat steps into a Technicolor world in this collection of all-new cat cartoons based on the popular (360 million views on YouTube) cartoon and book series. The bendy-as-rubber, demanding-as-a-debutante feline faces off against his own environment—the beanbag chair, lawn gnomes, neighborhood dogs, and Simon’s model ship—in full-page, full-color illustrations. Tofield’s cartooning is wonderfully fluid: the cat is beautifully rendered in simple lines, and is as flexible and highly expressive as the real thing. His indoor and outdoor misadventures are filled with details that increase the laughs with every viewing. Each page is wordless except for a simple one- or two-word caption each, and sight gags range from the outrageous—most cats can’t throw snowballs or use a crowbar to break through another home’s cat flap for purloining food—to the familiar (pawing frantically at a nature documentary about birds on the television, flopping belly-first on the middle of a Scrabble board). Cat lovers will adore this and will nod in recognition of real-life cat behavior; cartoon fans will delight in Tofield’s graceful skill in capturing the slinkiness, stealth, and self-absorption of our feline masters. Extras include an eight-page section on how to draw the characters and a sheet of Simon’s Cat color stickers. (Oct.)

    HILARIOUS for any cat LOVER!!!

    It's weird to see Simon's Cat in color because I am used to watching it in b/w. It is still a funny book. Keep up the great work Simon! Can't wait to see more books in the future.
