You’ve come to know and love Simon’s Cat from his YouTube videos. It all started with Cat Man Do, featuring black and white pencil drawings of a cat trying to wake his guardian, which has garnered more than 55 million views since it was posted eight 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 Off to the Vet and Other Catastrophes is the newest book in Simon Tofield’s series based on his YouTube cartoon character. Laugh-out-loud funny like all of Tofield’s work, this book features 240 pages of hilarious new gags and adventures featuring Simon’s Cat and his friends. According to Tofield: “Taking my naughty cat to the vet is one of the most requested film ideas from our fans. It was because of this that I started work on a new film and book based on the crazy situations that arise during these trips! A visit to the vet can be quite a stressful time in real life for both cats and their owners, however my goal is to bring out the comedy, and introduce a cast of extra characters for Simon’s Cat to meet, as he gets his claws into his new surroundings!”
This book will delight cat lovers, and makes a great stocking stuffer. Simon’s Cat Off to the Vet is available from Amazon* and other booksellers.
