Simon’s Cat in Kitten Chaos by Simon Tofield

Oh boy, another Simon's Cat book!  And this one has that cute little kitten in it.  I love Mr. Tofield's cat comics!

Akashic sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It's been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.  If you haven't met Simon's cat yet, you're in for a real treat.

When Simon brings a new kitten home as a rescue, his cat is not impressed.  His cat does his best to ignore it, all to no avail.

Here are a few of my favorite comics from this book:

Simon's cat notices the kitten sleeping in a sunny spot on the carpet while it's outside.  It slides a planter over in front of the window and blocks the sun from the kitten.

Simon is sick in bed.  The cats come to check on him and then sleep with him to make him better.  It's true that cats will try to heal you.

The dog and the kitten are playing in the rain with no worries.  Simon's cat is under a bush trying to get the kitten to join him.  When it doesn't, Simon's cat grabs a Frisbee and uses that as an umbrella.  As he walks out into the rain, the dog sees him.  Zip, the Frisbee is gone and Simon's cat is getting wet!

Cats do pick on each other and play.  What I like best about Simon's cat is that he's a cat owner and many of his ideas come from living with cats.   He just happens to have a talent at drawing and that makes fun reading for us.  Take a peek at the book.  I bet you'll buy it.
