Recensioner

I read this book, ironically, with my cat lying on my chest. Also, I had to read the book on my iPhone since I couldn't read on my iPad because Caesar isn't a small kitten anymore. He is a big cat, and it's really hard to try to hold a book or an iPad while he is lying on my chest. There is just no way one can read comfortable with him lying there, so iPhone it is.

Anyway, as you understand by now I have a cat so I find Simon's Cat Off to the Vet . . . and Other Cat-astrophes really charming to read because so much is so familiar to me. Having a cat is just basically having a child, a spoiled child, that just see you as his/hers personal slave. You're not the master of the cat. You are his/her pet.

This book is perfect for anyone that is a slave to a cat or want's to be a slave to a cat. Just remember it's hard to laugh when a cat is lying on your chest.

I received this copy from the Akashic Books through Edelweiss in return for an honest review! Thank you!

I just could not get that interested in this one. While there are a few sketches that are unique and funny, many are repetitious in different contexts. I mean how many times can Simon pose as a birdhouse, for example? I hope the YouTube videos are more worthwhile.

Po třech úspěšných vydáních příhod mazaného a požitkářského Simonova kocoura vychází nyní barevná kniha, která ve srovnání s předchozími černobílými kresbami neztrácí nic ze svého kouzla, ba naopak.
Britský výtvarník Simon Tofield nás opět přivádí do domu a na zahradu domku, kde se odehrávají komická kocouří dobrodružství. Simonův kocour tentokrát svádí lítý boj s nejrůznějšími nástrahami, s veverkami, ježky, mravenci, strakapoudem a v neposlední řadě se svým milujícím a oddaným majitelem.… (mer)

Anyone who is owned by a cat should read this book of wonderful cat cartoons. This book is a follow up to Tofield's first book: Simon's Cat. The cat is back....and hilarious. Simon's cat fights with other cats, stalks birds, eats bugs, spills the litter box, battles tape and other situations that will make cat owners chuckle and nod their heads.

The artwork is cute, and arranged in the book to be like a story. Not every page is a rip-snorter, but every page is cute, with some being uproariously funny.

As the resident housekeeper for 4 lovely felines, and a constant stream of foster kittens, I really identified with this book. Several times I had to laugh out loud as one of my cats had done the very thing depicted in the cartoon. For example, my cat Chester loves to eat stink bugs, but every time he throws up. One cartoon page shows Simon's Cat gleefully eating a bug, then making disgusted nauseated faces until the last frame where he joyfully eats the same sort of bug again. Completely Chester. All day long.

Delightful book. :) Tofield is servant to 4 cats of his own and has published 9 books of cat cartoons. This was the first one I checked out at the library. I'm definitely going to read more. Loved this one! There is also a YouTube channel with animated shorts here: Simon's Cat

My rating: 8/10
