Format: Paperback
Learn to Speak Cat: The Purrfect Guide by Anthony Smith is a little gem of a book which cat lovers of all ages will enjoy. Anthony's own unique style of illustration graces each page with a simple title or comment - much like the cartoons published daily in The Metro.

The blurb on the back covers asks: `Are you having trouble communicating with your feline friend? This is the book for you. Gain the confidence to chat to your kitty on a variety of subjects, and discover the wacky world of cat language.

Start learning cat today through Anthony's hilarious and, at times, surreal cartoons.'

Examples: MEOWFIA - Organised cat crime
WHISPURR - Cat secrets
TOURHISSTS - Stray cats

Anthony illustrated the banners for The Mewsletter and The Scratching Post (for my website - [...] and that will give you an idea of the way his mind views cats - the more quirky the better! I particularly loved `Catney Rhyming Slang' - "Dog and stick ... thick" and the Beauty Parlour where a cat is being shown his whisker extensions in a mirror, although, to be absolutely honest, I loved ALL the cartoons. Anthony has a real gift for imagining cats in their own natural settings and giving them a voice.

Learn to Speak Cat would make an ideal Christmas stocking filler for any feline loving purrson.

The cartoons running in the Metro free newspaper are, interestingly, not included in this small booklet, but the ones that are in here are every bit as silly and cute and smile-inducing... If you like "cat things", then this small cartoon tome is for you.

I had to wait for this because of the publishing date, but I love it. Like most folks, I make a beeline for the Learn to Speak Cat cartoon in the Metro. In fact, I have a hundred or so clippings of this cartoon and I just looking for a scrap book to paste them into. Oh well, doesn't look as though you can get them now. Anyway, an awful lot of the cartoons I clipped out the Metro are in here and I love this book. Well worth the wait. Thank you.

As a big fan of the daily cartoons in the Metro newspaper, this little book is an entertaining look at the life of cats that many times I have been able to relate to my own pets. The detail and quality of the pictures are fantastic. I would definitely recommend this product as a gift to a cat loving friend, or even yourself!

I am besotted by cats. In fact on occasion I have told my husband that if I had to choose between him and the cats - well it was nice knowing him. So it goes without saying that my favourite part of the daily Metro newspaper is 'Learn to Speak Cat'. I was thrilled when the book was published and it made a wonderful stocking filler for my cat loving family. Anthony obviously knows and loves cats and this is reflected in his wonderful cartoons. I am so pleased that he now has a card collection as well. A book to make you smile

Format: Paperback
"Learn To Speak Cat collects many of Anthony Smith's regular strips in the Metro newspaper, and if you've never picked up a copy, or have somehow not fallen over them being shared on Facebook, then the simple premise is that the cartoons are based around cat-related puns and word play, with inevitable funny or utterly bonkers results.

An ideal gift (and stocking filler) for any cat lover, or just someone who appreciates cartoons."

Simon Chadwick, Cartoonists' Club of Great Britain

I got this for my Mum since she is always messing around with the cats, trying to speak to them when they start 'talking' to you. There are a few funny little bits in it, and it is an ideal novelty gift to anyone who has cats!
