Recently, I was sent a copy of Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos, and as luck would have it, I am one of a number of  cat bloggers who was sent Simon's latest book, Simon's Cat vs. the World,  to share with all of YOU!

Of all of the Simon's Cat books, I believe that this one is my favorite!

Why?

Because "this time it's purr-sonal..."

 Simon's Cat takes on the WORLD!

You will see Simon's cat:
  • On "walkies"
  • at the vet
  • outsmarting Roxie the dog
  • sharing (or not!)
  • raiding the fridge
  • at a Cat Show
  • and much, much more!

IN "GLORIOUS FULL COLOR!"

The details of the drawings in this book are some of Tofield's BEST!

Take a look at this video where Simon Tofield demonstrates from start to finish how he colors one of the pages from this book!

Want to draw like Simon?

In the back of the book there are pages that show you how to draw:


  •  a Siamese Cat
  • a Persian Cat
  • a Tabby Cat
  • and a Squirrel!


There is also a sticker page in full color so that you can get your Simon's Cat "fix" in every room of your house, on mail, on notepads, lunch bags, wherever you choose!

For those of you living in another realm, that possibly have never heard of Simon's Cat or his owner, Simon Tofield, (I find it hard to believe that such a person exists), here is some background info from Akashic Books.:

SIMON TOFIELD is an award-winning illustrator, animator, and director based in London, England. At the age of nine, Simon received his first kitten, a stray rescued from a farmer's barn. He has had cats ever since. When not attending to his cats' needs, Simon likes painting, reading history books, and spending time in the great British countryside. His Simon's Cat short films have garnered hundreds of millions of views!
