Simon Tofield in conversation with Jef Czekaj at Brookline Booksmith

November 18, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Brookline Booksmith for a catstravaganza with British cartoonist Simon Tofield. His beloved animated series Simon’s Cat, with over 200 million views on YouTube, is inspired by the antics of Tofield’s four cats. It is noted for its verisimilitude of feline behavior, down to the gymnastic poses kitties take while grooming. The series explores the relationship between a mischievous and hungry cat and his owner — and in this latest book, Simon’s Cat vs. the World, Simon’s cat conquers all, from pugs to seasons (in their entirety). Tofield will be joined in conversation by cartoonist, children’s book author (Cat Secrets; Hip and Hop, Don’t Stop), emcee of Somerville’s Copy Cat Festival, and owner of the world’s best cat sweater Jef Czekaj.

Simon Tofield is an award-winning illustrator, animator, and director based in London, England. At the age of nine, Simon received his first kitten, a stray rescued from a farmer’s barn. He has had cats ever since. When not attending to his cats’ needs, Simon likes painting, reading history books, and spending time in the great British countryside. His “Simon’s Cat” short films have garnered hundreds of millions of views, and the book versions have been international best sellers.

“Cat lovers will adore this and will nod in recognition of real-life cat behavior; cartoon fans will delight in Tofield’s graceful skill in capturing the slinkiness, stealth, and self-absorption of our feline masters.” —Publishers Weekly
