From watching the clips and reading the books it is obvious that Simon really does own cats, and that he has some truly funny moments with those cats. This first collection of his stories is told without any words and without any real structure, but that just adds to the charm of watching how one cat makes his owners life very interesting.
There are some really laugh out loud moments here, especially when the cat does things that my own cats do, and I know other cat owners who also adore Simon's cat and eagerly wait for each new mini-movie to appear on YouTube or the official website.
A fun read for all ages that always makes me chuckle.
If you like this first book then try the other books in the series including Simon's cat beyond the fence, Simon's cat feed me! and Simon's cat in kitten chaos.
