This book is a must-read for any cat lover, especially those who have brought home a cute, fuzzy kitten to the annoyance of an adult cat already in residence. :) As someone who has fostered many litters of rescue kittens, I know the annoyed stare of my adult cats as I clean, brush and play with infiltrators. I have seen my adult kitties run terrified from kittens who want to play with them, watched my chihuahuas herd baby kittens into their doggie bed for a nap, and chastised big kitties for wha ...more

Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos is a fun and funny addition to the library of anyone who loves cats. In fact, it is a great addition for anyone who likes to laugh. I have been a fan of Simon's Cat since I first came across Cat Man Do, a hilarious line drawing video, years ago. In fact, that may still be my favorite video of all. Or maybe it's TV Dinner? No, it is impossible to choose a favorite Simon's Cat video.

The Simon's Cat videos never fail to make me laugh, even when I'm having the worst day possible I can watch pretty much any of them to put a smile on my face so of course I've been religiously buying the books as they're published. Since I currently have a new kitten in the house this seemed like the perfect time to pick Kitten Chaos back up for probably the billionth time. These are the kind of books that you can leave sat on the coffee table and flick through whenever you have a couple of minutes ( ...more

Simon’s Cat in Kitten Chaos by Simon Tofield is the latest collection of drawings by Simon Tofield outlining the lives of cats, kittens, other animals, and their owners. If you’ve never watched one of his videos, you owe it to yourself to watch one on Youtube. If you have ever watched cats playing around, you’ll recognize quite a few of their antics.

This collection of drawings opens with Simon finding a box outside and bringing it into his home, passing by his cat. The cat is begging

My family has enjoyed all of the Simon's cat books and especially looked forward to this book, adding a kitten to the mix. Memories of Nermal and Garfield were of course the first thoughts but really Simon's cat's author really shines and rises above all other cartoon cats. Instead of little vignettes without any overall connection, we get the tempestuous relationship from first meeting (Simon's cat pointing imperiously to his food dish when Simon arriv

I received this book through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers Program.

If you're a cat lover (or even if you're not), you've likely seen some of the Simon's Cat cartoons on Youtube. They are charming and well-animated, capturing the persistent, loving, and sometimes aggravating nature of the cat, and his well-meaning "owner." This translates remarkably well to book form in Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos.

One word description for the book: adorable.

Very enjoyable, I love the drawings, they crack me up! I would say that the videos are more effective though, but that might be because I'm used to the stories in that format.

I first became acquainted with Simon's Cat through the animated cartoons on the author's website and youtube. They were so adorable/hilarious that when I saw a giveaway on Goodreads for a book by the author I jumped at it. So, this is my review of the free copy I received through the giveaway.

This book primarily focuses on the relation between Simon's cat and the addition of a new kitten to the household. The scenes are sweet/endearing/detailed/thoughtful/humorous and more often than
Like me, you may have first encountered Simon's Cat on YouTube. If you are owned by a cat, you found those clips to be hysterical, and a fairly accurate reflection of life with a cat. The books followed, and I have to say I loved the first, but wasn't too crazy about the second one. Then I saw a listing for this one on Amazon. Something told me I wasn't going to be able to wait the 6 or so months before the print version would be out here in the US, so I broke down and bought it for my Kindle... ...more

With no words, and simple but hilarious illustrations, Simon's Cat was a perfect comics book to read with the 6 year old. We were both familiar with the Simon's Cat youtube vids, and we both giggled for ages while reading this comic! Plus, Miss L was able to pick up on some if it, surprisingly, about the two hating eachother, then learning to work together and liking eachother.

This book carries on the cartoon capers of Simons cat. I was first introduced to him some years ago as a surprise christmas present and i loved it. This book carries on those adventures with the introduction of a new found kitten. Ok there are a lot of comic cartoon events you would expect but anyone who has lived with cats and particularly raised them from kittens will understand there are a lot of perfectly captured events and stunts you will instantly recognise and agree with.

I was only introduced to Simon's Cat a few weeks ago, so I was excited when this book appeared at the bookstore this morning. It was cute and funny, but I think I would prefer a book that is just about the kitty hijinks, and less about the garden animals they play with. I'm not a cat owner, but I love Simon's line drawings. They are so expressive in their simplicity. A must read for any cat lover!

The illustrations in this book will immediately have any cat lover laughing as they recognise so many of the hilarious little whimsies and hijinks our feline friends get up to! Simon has completely captured numerous and familiar pet - owner exchanges that I found myself grinning at every turn of the page!

I won this book in the first reads giveaway. It's hilarious just as I expected! The book is full of pages of funny drawings of this lovable cat. My Wife and I can't get enough of him. We have another book and look forward to collecting all of them. This is great for all ages.

Obviously, this was adorable. But, I did miss the sound effects from watching the videos online. :p Also, there was hedgehogs! Where does Simon live? Does he really have hedgehogs in his yard?

This is my second Simon’s Cat book of the month, and I must say that I think I preferred the first one. But that’s because this is all about kittens, and I don’t have one. I also think I’d prefer these cartoons if they had more dialogue, because every now and then I struggled to figure out what was actually supposed to be happening.

To be honest, after reading the first book, I figured I wouldn’t bother with any more because I didn’t like it too much. Then my girlfriend got me this on

Cute collection of drawings about a cat and how he reacts to a new kitten who is recently brought into the home. Our youngest has really enjoyed watching the YouTube comic shorts featuring Simon's Cat and she was excited to see this book at her elementary school library.

The wordless scenes are very entertaining and we enjoyed adding our own commentary as we flipped through the pages, chuckling at the antics of the kitties. Still, we both prefer the animated scenes to the book - they just seem to h

This is a cute picture story of the adventures of Simon's Cat and a new kitten that comes in the house. There is some funny pictures in this book. The picture of the kitten putting a toy mouse on the owners food was kind of funny and a bunch of the other pictures were funny too. I liked the pictures in this book.

I’ve always enjoyed watching Simon’s Cat videos on YouTube. What I liked about this books is there is a linear story of how Simon’s Cat meets kitten, gets jealous of the kitten, cat and kitten fight constantly and get each other in trouble, and finally, Cat warms up to kitten and they play together and get into mischief together. Very cute!

Charming and sweet

This collection of charming cartoons will bring a smile to every cat owners face. The creator of the Simon's Cat series on the web has introduced a number of even cuter critters, including a spunky little kitten. Very sweet and funny.

I love challenging myself by reading books with no words. Simon`s Cat is based on the videos by Simon Tofield about his cats. The graphic novels take the videos and turn them into individual images. I enjoy looking at each page and finding all the little details that add to the story the picture shows. How much can be expressed with only a black pen? A lot. These books were quick reads and a perfect way to mix up my reading materials. ...more
