Amy: Have you shown your films to your cats? If so, were they amused? Simon: Hugh and Teddy sometimes watches me while I work on the computer. But the others have far too important things to do. Like sleeping. Amy: Did you ever expect that your films would become so successful? Simon: No.
It was a big surprise. It was never meant to be seen by other people. But I put it on my animation showreel, and next thing I knew, someone had taken the video without asking me and put it on YouTube.
By the time I found out, Cat Man Do had been viewed millions of times. Amy: When did you decide to put your films into a book? Simon: It's always been an ambition of mine to create a book. Luckily the popularity of Simon's Cat lead to a few publishers approaching me, which allowed me to take Simon's Cat to the printed page. Amy: What's the book about?
Simon: The simple answer would be that it's about Simon's Cat! But if you read between the lines you could say it's about relationships, trust, love, humour, fun, animals and those funny moments in life.
Amy: What was it like to see your fan base grow into such enormous worldwide audience? Simon: It's been incredible and a complete surprise! I am honoured that other people who love cats also like Simon's Cat. It's like we're one big happy cat family. Amy: Don't you think your cats deserve some credit for your success?
Simon: Oh certainly. If it weren't for them I would never have had the idea for Simon's Cat. They definitely deserve their Christmas presents! Amy: Are you going to make more Simon's cat films in the near future? What should your fans expect? Simon: There will hopefully be many more Simon's Cat films for a long time to come. Is there one in the near future? Yes, but I won't ruin the surprise.
If I told you what to expect, then it wouldn't be a surprise! Amy: Will there be more books down the road? Simon: A second Simon's Cat book will arrive late in Amy: If you could speak cat language what would you like to say to your cats? Simon: "Could you just give me a few more minutes in bed!
Simon: One lady got Simon's Cat tattooed on her back and sent me a photo. The dog loves to play fetch, and often does not realise that the cat is making him look a fool. However in this case, the bird usually outsmarts him. This derives from English folklore, where hedgehogs steal windfall apples by rolling along the ground so that the apples attach themselves to their prickles.
The garden gnome is usually depicted holding either a fishing rod or a net. Instinctively he chases the mouse on sight, but the mouse is very clever.
As such, it should in theory transfer well to the page. The cartoons are very funny, but it has to be said that the moving images - the animated cartoons - work better. If you are a slave to a cat in your home, you will instantly recognise much of the behaviour exhibited here. Whether cute, dangerous, destructive or downright disgusting, it is totally authentic.
I recommend all cat-lovers to watch one or two if you have never done so. Here is a link to the YouTube page: I did give the book to the intended recipient - and confessed that I had read it myself first!

Jun 25, Heidi The Reader rated it it was ok Shelves: I had, perhaps, unrealistically high hopes for this graphic novel after the mammoth success with my kid that was I am Pusheen the Cat , but, sadly, we are back to where we started with my reluctant reader. She wouldn't even open Simon's Cat. The graphic novels are alike in that both feature kitties, but their approach is very different. Pusheen is about how cute and colorful Pusheen is. Simon's Cat is more about the cat's behavior and interaction with his human.
Pusheen had a few words in it. Sim I had, perhaps, unrealistically high hopes for this graphic novel after the mammoth success with my kid that was I am Pusheen the Cat , but, sadly, we are back to where we started with my reluctant reader. Simon's Cat is told entirely through pictures. I enjoyed this book because I have a bunch of cats and I know exactly what its like to be awakened in the middle of the night, forced off the bed, and have my luggage pirated by a strong-willed feline.
For the under ten set, they may get some of the more obvious jokes- like any of the hunting or "want food" moments, but otherwise, this comic may not appeal. I suspect that she didn't open this one because it is completely in black and white and she's drawn to the bright and colorful. I actually rather liked it myself, "read" through it with my husband, and got a few chuckles out of the misadventures of Simon's cat.
Oh well. Recommended for anyone with a cat who enjoys funny situations and simple pictures.

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. View 1 comment. Nov 10, Kelly Long rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a quick, funny read based on the YouTube videos.
Being owned by 2 cats, I can relate to a lot of these comics. Mar 18, Dane Cobain rated it liked it. Really, though, I would have liked to have seen some sort of dialogue, some words that I could read instead of just pictures to look at.
And to be honest, it was kinda dull after the first five. So yeah. Nov 18, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: If you're a cat fan or just in need of a pick me up you can't fail to laugh at the Simon's Cat videos and the book is just the same. I'd recommend this to anyone, it makes a great coffee table book and is something you will return to again and again.
The second book Simon's Cat: Beyond the Fence was released in October and once again it is at the top of my Christmas wish list! Yes my cats do have an expensive climbing frame. Do they use it? Of course not - they'd much rather play with an empty box!

I did love the videos so much more. Still worth taking a look at though. This is apparently based on some popular YouTube videos of the same name. I've never heard of it, but since I almost never go to YouTube, that's not saying much.
Still, I saw the title on the Goodreads giveaways list and decided to enter to win a free book. I have a cat, and who doesn't love a good cartoon about cats? I was lucky enough to win a copy. This was cute. I think every cat owner will recognize their cat in these pages.
The way he's always begging for food, plotting to catch the local w This is apparently based on some popular YouTube videos of the same name. The way he's always begging for food, plotting to catch the local wildlife, ripping off his bell-collar, and just generally being a lovable, annoying furball are spot on. There's one section about the ordeal of getting the cat into the pet carrier and to the vet that I am going to show my aunt.
She will love it!
And does she have a story about that! Some things seemed a little familiar from Garfield mostly the cat-as-birdhouse routines , but mostly this was original and funny.
With his best friend the garden gnome and his arch-nemesis the porcupine in tow, Simon's cat will charm your socks off.
One thing that bothered me was that I wasn't sure where one little storyline ended and where another started. They weren't consistently the same length, sometimes there were several on a page, and sometimes one little story went on for pages. Maybe it was just me. But still--that's what knocked this down a star. Overall, though, I recommend this for cat lovers. I'll be checking out the YouTube videos soon myself.

Even though the way to interpret the cats in his videos have changed during time, it's still so lovely to experience his views on cats while we witness ours at home.
The drawings in this book are basically like the videos, but the book doesn't give the same taste. It lacks the small yet important details in cats' behaviours. Still, how can someone not like the Simon's Cat?

I love cats! Nov 25, Hanna rated it it was amazing. Kissat on parhaita. Piirrustustyyli on aivan mahtava. Aug 08, Sikata rated it it was amazing.
It's a light read and very funny. Moody, ever hungry, wrecking kitty action illustrated beautifully. This book is for all the cat lovers out there. You can't help but relate to every page as a cat owner. I happened to relate because we had cats when I was quite small they weren't a big fan of my hugs.
Oct 10, Fox rated it really liked it Shelves: Nov 07, Christine booktumbling rated it it was amazing. I had actually never seen the You Tube animations but after reading the entire book yesterday and giggling, nodding my head in agreement, falling out of my chair, wiping tears of laughter and recovering from that stiffness you get in your cheeks due to smiling so much, I jumped on the computer and started the laugh-fest all over again.
This is such a happy-hearted, joyous book and the author is spot-on in portraying behavior of the feline kind as well as those who are slave to the cat! I cannot recommend this book enough for cat lovers, those thinking of adopting a cat and even for those non-cat fanatics. This is a book that has a home in my permanent collection. It's a funny series of cartoons about the cat that belongs to Simon. Hence Simon's Cat. Based on the successful series of YouTube cartoons this book attempts to extend that success to print.
Sadly, while funny, it's not quite on a par with the short film versions. Those really are hilarious, these are 'only' pretty funny Gracias Memeee Alexis por este regalo tan hermoso. Jan 02, Victoria rated it really liked it. Cats in a nutshell En definitiva un libro para los amantes de los gatos, pero que sin duda puede atrapar a cualquiera!

If you have a kitty you will love this! In fact, this is my cat Malone! If you don't have a cat you probably won't believe this but hang with a cat for a while and they will convince you this is real!! Jul 29, Barbara rated it liked it Shelves: Any cat owner will enjoy!

I love the YouTube channel, which was why I picked this up. The whole thing was endearing and very funny!
