I love the antics of Simon's Cat. His expressions are absolutely priceless.
I have several cat lovers on my Christmas list who will be getting copies of this wonderful book. I look forward to more from this creative genius!
In hundreds of small comics, a neckless cat of indeterminate age or breed does the things cats do. Destroys. Yearns. Yearns to destroy. The images are simple pen-and-inks. No color. That's about the long and short of it, really.
The reason the book version of "Simon's Cat" works is twofold. First, Tofield doesn't caption his images. There's a webseries out there (now also a book) called "Garfield Minus Garfield" which highlights how unfunny that particular cartoon cat is by removing him from comic strips, leaving only his owner. It's a definite improvement. "Simon's Cat", in contrast, uses visual gags entirely and it works so much better. It's like watching a sitcom without an annoying laugh track. You don't need words for certain kinds of visual storytelling.Read more ›
I didn't like how a lot of the drawings were very "comic" like and similar to Garfield. What I love about Simon's videos is how they "simply" represent perfectly his cats and cat-like behavior. Those little things of a cat chasing and being this or that, interacting with Simon, his owner.
The book had a lot of things that had nothing real to do with cats but sort of Garfield type comic and not really like his videos.
All in all, I enjoyed the book. Just wish it had more cat and Simon and less cat acting human.
(Unfortunately, real life calls me away, so check back later; I'll write more later. I hope that this paragraph adds to the discussion about the book, and why I like and recommend it. BFN.)
