Sue Baker's view...

Having wrecked the home, Simon’s cat ventures out through the cat flap to sow enmity in the local wildlife population. Tofield’s uncaptioned cartoons capture that complete and rather enviable self-centredness of cats, their ability to turn owners into servants and their complete disregard for the comfort of others.

The Lovereading view...

The adorable but incorrigible cat embarks on a series of adventures beyond the garden fence. Sharply observed and beautifully drawn, this new book promises to be an even bigger hit than the first that was published to such acclaim in 2009.

Reviews

‘What sets Tofield's cartoons apart are the truly comic moments of pure cat-ness: the merciless patting at a halfdead fly, the single-minded determination, that weird little dance thing that segues seamlessly into a look of utter boredom.’ - Irish Times

‘The conniving Simon's Cat continues in his very own book. The quirky felis catus, the creation of award-winning illustrator and animator Simon Tofield, is a YouTube phenomenon with more than 30 million hits.’ - Herald

‘Extremely amiable.’ - The Skinny

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
