Comments for Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos
Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos: 08/10/14
Simon's Cat started as a series of flash videos on YouTube. As anything involving cats on the internet does, Simon's Cat quickly became a thing. Along the way, there came a series of comic books.
Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos by Simon Tofield is the third of the comic books. Simon's cat, who as far as I know, remains unnamed, must now share his home with a new kitten. As anyone who has introduced a kitten to an older singleton cat knows, this process is not easy but is very amusing to watch.
Tofield uses sparse black line drawings to full humorous effect to create recognizable and relatable experiences of a cat and a kitten squabbling over the home territory. Except for the back of the book which includes an appendix of how to draw various characters and animals (as these are also a regular segment on the Simon's Cat YouTube challenge), the book is wordless. It's just the cat, the kitten, and their well meaning, albeit somewhat clueless owner.
Simon's Cat appeals to any age, to anyone who has cats or knows cats.

I'll have to check this one out. I read the original book, Simon's Cat years ago. Funny stuff! Great review!

Thank you for the nice comment. Next month I'll be reviewing Simon's Cat vs. the World which is the series's first full color comic book.
