Anyone who has lived with and loved a cat will adore this book. You will recognise every one of his cat's behaviours - and particular instances that will just crease you up. For me it was the bottom-washing (usually when there are visitors) and taking over the bed. Even the film clip with the hungry cat and the baseball bat hit home - only my cat used to jump off the wardrobe onto me as I slept, then run away up the hall!
The interactions with the local wildlife, and the friendship with the garden gnome, are great fun too - adding an extra dimension of naugtiness and personality to that wonderful little chap with the unfortunate personal habits.
Absolutely priceless - and highly recommended!
There is no text in the books, it is visual gags only, but they are presented well. Cat lovers will identify with many aspects of Simon's Cat.
I seemed sometimes that there was a desperation to try and have enough material to fill the book and the bottom of the barrel was well scraped, but I still think it was worth the buy and nice to have. I have left in in the toilet for those times when it's going to be a long boring 'sit' for myself or anyone. That may not sound so good haha, but it is actually a good thing as I would not leave anything there which was not worth browsing through.
A thumbs up from me :)
Makes for a lovely present (the reason I bought it), or as a great little treat for yourself.
Having lived with cats for many years perhaps I'm biased, but in my opinion this is a book every cat owner will enjoy. It's not often a book will make me laugh out loud, but this one certainly did. It's also worth checking out the short animations Simon Topfield has put on the Internet as they are also excellent.
but the ebook format didn't work well. the drawings are pixel thin, almost impossible to see. the drawing size is anything from stamp size (litterally impossible to see) to about 1/2 the size of the screen. You can't 'size up' the drawings.
The drawings need to have a much thicker line, the pictures need to size up so they fill the screen.
The drawings I was able to see, I enjoyed, but overall I was disapointed.
