“The phenomenon that is Simon’s Cat has hit an all time high!

Simon’s Cat has continued to evolve with new characters and story lines that every cat owner can relate to!” —Your Cat
“One of the hottest publishing properties of the year . . . What makes Simon’s Cat so infinitely irresistible? There’s the cute factor, but what sets Tofield’s cartoons apart are the truly comic moments of pure cat-ness: the merciless patting at a half-dead fly, the single-minded determination, that weird little dance thing that segues seamlessly into a look of utter boredom.” —Irish Times
“Funny and warm, the thing that really struck me as a cat lover was that this was obviously an animator who understood cats and had watched their behavior . . . Full of Tofield’s attention to the smallest idiosyncrasies that other cat owners will recognize.” —The Herald (Scotland)
“It’s his knack for caricaturing feline behavior, coupled with a schoolboy humor, that appeals to children and adults alike.” —The Times (London)
“Simon’s Cat has taken over the world like a digital Garfield.” —Sunday Times (London)
