I have recently discovered 'Simon's Cat'... for those of you who don't know, Simon's Cat is an animated cartoon series, drawn by Simon Tofield. It follows a young man's cat that gets up into all sorts of trouble whilst on a quest for food. Pointing towards his open mouth being his trademark signal! Simon's Cat started off on YouTube and 25 million hits later became a word-of-mouth phenomenon. Its remarkable how I have managed to miss it, since my boyfriend showed it to me about a month back! I really like the simplistic nature of the drawings, which I try to apply on my course in graphic design. They feature simple black or white lines on a plain background. ... Read the complete review

"Simon's Cat....in his very own book" is the published extension of Simon Tofield's highly successfuly eponymous You Tube animation series, also viewable via its own website - www.simonscat.com.

I was a bit slow on the uptake of the hugely popular phenomenon which is Simon's Cat, and only discovered the YouTube animation series, shortly before I received this book as a Christmas present. For those who dont have a clue what Im talking about, Simon's Cat started life when animator Simon Tofield made a couple of cartoons based on the antics of his cat, and put it on You Tube. Within a year more than 25 million people had viewed the videos turning the whole thing into a worldwide hit. Later, Simon's cat Hugh had the opportunity to star in his very own book which is printed in glossy hardcover, with an illustrated removable dust jacket. ... Read the complete review

This is the book based on the Youtube videos that went viral, of a sketched cat behaving - well - as cats do! Simon Tofeld is obviously a long standing cat owner and without doubt he has an incredible handle on cat behaviour and the funny little quirks these animals have. I laughed out loud on many occasions while reading this book, something almost unheard of for me as I tend to be quite reserved, but this book is funny enough to exhort a chuckle even in the most public of places. A huge variety of cartoons with various recurring characters (including the hedgehog, the birds and the hapless owner) taking every little behavioural quirk and comical ... Read the complete review
