The Making of ‘Off to the Vet – and Other Cat-astrophes’ Book OUT NOW

100 Comments



I’m Simon, and I am just putting finishing touches to my new book ‘Simon’s Cat Off to the Vet and other Cat-astrophes’ I’ve always wanted to do a vet book, Because at some point we all have to take our cats to the vet, and there is such rich picking there for comedy, even though it’s such a stressful time for the cat and the owner. One of the challenges for me is to actually pluck out some of those comedy moments that we can all relate to, being cat owners. The main chunk of the book is the cat being taken to the vet and all the trouble he get’s up to, when he gets out and meets all the other inmates at the vets, but there is also a large chunk of the book to do with the garden, new creatures and a new neighbour that he meets and other adventures. Well, I’ve created lots more characters in this book, that are all brand new and people have never seen before. I had great fun developing the angry neighbour character, who is a very keen gardener and obviously doesn’t take to the cat going through his garden and I think there is loads in here that a lot of Simon’s Cat fans will love. which allows me to put loads more character into those drawings and the backgrounds and get those extra details, and of course, some of the animals are crying out to be coloured. You got the colourful Cockatoo with his yellow plume and the little cute hamster with his sort of white belly and his little white face and the rabbits, so it’s nice to get a bit of colour included in the book. Well, I also like to get loads of variety in my books, so I do this by having some really simple images, which are basically comic strip forms, which tell a little tiny story, then there is others, which are full of detail, so again they have their own charm and hidden things to find so it makes the book more interesting, I think, to have these different types of kind of pages and things to enjoy. We had a great time creating this book, and I think there is loads in here that a lot of Simon’s Cat fans will love. But you don’t have to be a Simon’s Cat fan. There is loads of slapstick gags in here that anyone can enjoy.

    You skipped down here to see what the point of this is.
    You didn't realize that I spelled one of them like "panguin"
    You're looking for "panguin"
    You're confused because you didn't find it.

  24. Dima Flash says:

    Thank you very much. I, and to much like your creativity. Such attention to emotions and trifles is praiseworthy. Coincidence to real situations simply admires. It is very lovely, and it is amusing. Good luck to you, thanks, and all kind.

    Большое спасибо. Мне, и многим нравится ваше творчество. Такое внимание эмоциям и мелочам достойно похвалы. Совпадение с реальными ситуациями просто восхищает. Это очень мило, и забавно. Удачи вам, спасибо, и всего доброго.

    You guys need a new soundtrack. The one you've been recycling is getting old.

  32. Забава Путятишна says:

    Ваш рассказ о книге не менее интересен самих "Историй о коте Симона". Поведение кота Симона очень реалистично и живо во всех сериях. Если надо поднять себе настроение всегда смотрю хоть одну. Вы с ним лучшие ! : )

    👍

  93. The Feral Sage says:

    The charm of your cat is that you have him act like a cat.
    Lately you've been humanizing him a little.
    Please don't?! I loved Garfield when he acted like a cat, then lost interest when his creator "humanized" him. Thank-you.
