Priscilla Cat vs. Simon's Cat vs. The World
Who isn't a fan of Simon's Cat? His videos have racked up hundreds of millions of views on YouTube, and launched an empire based off one mischievous puss.
After the release of Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos earlier this year, award winning illustrator Simon Tofield is back with the U.S. hardcover release of his newest book, Simon's Cat Vs. the World, due out from Akashic Books in October.
Unlike his previous book, which was a wordless black and white comic, vs. the World is a full color adventure that pits the naughty white feline up against some of his biggest foes yet, including snowballs, Saturdays, dogs, and of course, Simon's kitten!
As a bonus, the 96-page book also includes a color sticker sheet, and how-to drawings from Simon on how to create a Persian cat, Siamese cat, Tabby cat, and squirrel.
Tofield will be embarking on a national tour in support of the book in November, starting the 18th in Brookline, MA and ending on Nov. 25th in New York City. (Check out the full schedule of appearances here.)
I found the book to be a fun and fast read, and enjoyed how it brought Simon's Cat's online hijinks to the page! Great for bringing the laughs to you or the Simon's Cat fan in your life.
