Summary

"Guaranteed laugh out loud material, Tofield's secret is successfully relating Simon's cat to any cat. Simon's cat is certainly the Snoopy of the cat world."--Chicago Tribune"Simon's Cat Off to the Vet and Other Cat-astrophes is a sweet, humorous look at feline behavior from an author with a thorough understanding of this subject matter....An excellent holiday gift for any cat fancier."--Phyllis O’Beollain, Examiner.com"Simon's Cat: Off to the Vet has dozens of hilarious cartoons of varying lengths....The cartoons are about more than just taking a reluctant cat to the vet (which involves a cardboard box and perfect timing). There are cartoons about destroyed gardens, destroyed bird feeders, destroyed clothes and destroyed furniture. But there are also cartoons about the affection cats can show us, and how we return the love...Every cat lover will love Simon's Cat: Off to the Vet...and Other Cat-astrophes."--About.com"Whether you are 5 or 95, this is sure to draw a smile from you."--Sharon Damon, Examiner.com"My reaction to each new Simon's Cat video or book is the same: YAY!! In this brand-new collection, acclaimed cartoonist Simon Tofield tackles every cat owner’s nightmare: going to the vet. It tells the story of how Simon's Cat seems to instinctively know a trip to the vet is about to happen and the lengths he’ll go to avoid it, while long-suffering Simon is forced to try all kinds of tricks to get him to cooperate. Sound familiar?"--Catster"Witty and wonderful, Simon's Cat: Off to the Vet is a treat for cat lovers or anyone who loves laughter."--Midwest Book Review"Whether you read it straight through or pace yourself with one or two cartoons at a time, this is a book that will cheer the gloomiest day. Add the videos, some snacks, a favorite beverage and a cat on your lap--it's a little vacation in the middle of daily life."--Kings River Life MagazineIn the last five years, Simon's Cat has become a global phenomenon. Star of thirty-nine films, which have been watched over 500 million times, and winner of a dozen major industry awards, Simon's Cat has captured the hearts of a worldwide audience. In this brand-new book we see Simon's Cat face any feline's most dreaded scenario--he's off to the vet. And he's not at all happy about it.Sharing its theme with the first-ever full-color Simon's Cat feature animation, funded by a record-breaking Indiegogo campaign and due to be released alongside the new book, Simon's Cat Off to the Vet...and Other Cat-astrophes is packed with over 240 pages of hilarious new gags and adventures featuring our favorite furry friend and his companions--both old and new.Says Tofield: "Taking my naughty cat to the vet is one of the most requested film ideas from our fans. It was because of this that I started work on a new film and book based on the crazy situations that arise during these trips! A visit to the vet can be quite a stressful time in real life for both cats and their owners, however my goal is to bring out the comedy, and introduce a cast of extra characters for Simon's Cat to meet, as he gets his claws into his new surroundings!"

    Cham, real name Count Amédée de Noé and a serious rival to Daumier, may have been the epitome of a célèbre inconnu, a famous unknown. He is one much deserving, at last, of this first account of his huge oeuvre as a caricaturist.This book concentrates on his mastery of the important newcomer to the field of caricature, which we call comic strip, picture story, and graphic novel. The volume features facsimiles of nearly twenty of these from 1839 to 1863 and ranging from one page to forty (this last a parody of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables). In addition, summaries and sample illustrations of twenty-seven "minor works" demonstrate that Cham is by far the most important specialist of what was then a new genre in Europe.Born to an ancient aristocratic family, Cham was from early on wholly dedicated to an art considered far beneath his class. Starting as a disciple of the father of the modern comic strip, Swiss Rodolphe Töpffer, Cham soon launched out on his own, evolving an original form of comedy, his own comédie humaine, farcical, absurd, and parodic. His productivity was legendary and comprised all the known genres of caricature, the full-page cartoon lithograph, the thematic seasonal group, weekly and monthly humorous comment (much like the daily newspaper cartoonist today), and a feature called the Revue Comique, which made him the supreme graphic journalist of his day.Hitherto unknown correspondence reveals an attractive personality who was fond of animals and who honored a low-class woman he eventually made his countess. Vaunted comics scholar David Kunzle has created a fitting tribute to Cham's impact and genius.
