I do usually enjoy all types of cat books and having tried (and failed) to enjoy one Simon's Cat title, I decided to try another. Unfortunately the result was the same as last time, I could find little empathy with the unfortunate creature. Indeed, the title of the book 'Wake Up!' puzzled me slightly although I suppose in many of the cartoons Simon's Cat is sleeping and is sometimes being messily woken up - as on occasion is Simon himself.

There are some instances which are recognisable, such as

Dikti jautri un patiesi, cik kaķi ir mīļi un kretīniski :) Melnbaltā versija man vizuāli patīk labāk, bet šī mazā grāmatiņa ir jauks 5 min. variants omas uzlabošanai.

A cat suffers and causes various indignities.

I found this book very amusing and the illustrations were good.

If you have cats this is worth a look.

This book reminds me a lot of everyday things with my own cats <3 So, nothing better, really. Made me laugh and/or smile in every page.

The reason I liked this one more was because nearly - everything - portrayed, was or could have been done by Tristan

No dejo de amar esta caricatura. Muchos dirán que es un intento de copiar a Garfield pero como no he visto los cómics de él, no tengo con que comparar.

E independientemente de eso, Simon's Cat será siempre mi preferido.

This was given to me as a birthday gift and, like all of the Simon's Cat books, it's a great, easy, and very funny read. There's nothing like a bit of Simon's Cat to make a dull day a lot better!

Simon's sleeping cats... not letting him sleep. Cat behaviour in a few pictures.
Funny. As usual.

This is a cute little book full of pictures that paint a thousand words, and one of a series of "Simon's Cat" books. Very funny!
