Review and giveaway: Simon’s Cat in Kitten Chaos by Simon Tofield

Simons_Cat_in_Kitten_Chaos

You know Simon’s Cat from his YouTube videos. It all started with Cat Man Do, which I believe was the original Simon’s Cat video. The hand drawn animated video featuring black and white pencil drawings of a cat trying to wake his guardian has garnered more than 40 million views since it was posted five years ago.

Since then, Simon’s Cat has become an empire, featuring more videos, books, and merchandise ranging from t-shirts to cat beds to fine art prints.

Simon’s Cat in Kitten Chaos is the third installment in Simon Tofield’s book series based on his YouTube cartoon character. In this book, Simon’s Cat meets his match: a new kitten who is half the size of Simon’s Cat, with twice the attitude.

I hadn’t seen any of the previous books before, and I wasn’t sure how the cartoons would translate to print. Turns out they translate well – I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It’s impossible to look through the book without winding up with a big smile on your face.

I particularly enjoyed the section titled “Simon Draws,” in which Tofield shows step by step how he draws Simon’s Cat and the other characters in his cartoons. He makes it look so easy – yet I know that if I tried it, I wouldn’t be able to capture the cats’ expressions in Tofield’s inimitable way.

    Living with four cats, I need a chance to laugh instead of scream. The 3AM gallops, the 8AM wake up calls, the dumping of trash to get a crumb of food for a starving cat who only had four cans of food five hours ago–all leads to the need to laugh. Please pick me.

    I would love to win this because I’m certain that Simon and I are sharing the same cat.

    I want to win this for my nephew. He loves Simon’s Cat. He walks around meowing and pointing to his mouth.
