In the last five years, Simon's Cat has become a global phenomenon. Star of thirty-nine films, which have been watched over 500 million times, and winner of a dozen major industry awards, Simon's Cat has captured the hearts of a worldwide audience. In this brand-new book we see Simon's Cat face any feline's most dreaded scenario--he's off to the vet. And he's not at all happy about it.
Sharing its theme with the first-ever full-color Simon's Cat feature animation, funded by a record-breaking Indiegogo campaign and due to be released alongside the new book, Simon's Cat Off to the Vet...and Other Cat-astrophes is packed with over 240 pages of hilarious new gags and adventures featuring our favorite furry friend and his companions--both old and new.
Says Tofield: "Taking my naughty cat to the vet is one of the most requested film ideas from our fans. It was because of this that I started work on a new film and book based on the crazy situations that arise during these trips! A visit to the vet can be quite a stressful time in real life for both cats and their owners, however my goal is to bring out the comedy, and introduce a cast of extra characters for Simon's Cat to meet, as he gets his claws into his new surroundings!”
I adore Simon’s Cat. Simon Tofield masterfully captures life as a cat owner, the fun and the frustrations, the smiles and of course the laughter. Whether clowns or mischief makers, we love our cuddly, curious, and sometimes destructive companions. Simon’s Cat doesn’t talk or act human, he is simply a cat, a delightful duplicitous feline just like the ones we share our homes with.
One of the most difficult tasks cat parents face is the dreaded vet visit. Instinctively, our cats know what is coming and do their best to thwart our efforts. Comedy of epic, and often frustrating proportions ensues. Simon Tofield does a marvelous job capturing the hilarity in his imaginative and beautifully illustrated new book Simon’s Cat Off to the Vet…and Other Cat-astrophes.
Whether you are young or old, a cat lover yourself or a friend to one, Simon’s Cat Off to the Vet and Other Cat-astrophes is a “purrfect” choice.
I look forward to the upcoming animation.
