Book Giveaway: Simon’s Cat [CONTEST CLOSED]

What better way to celebrate National Cat Day than by giving away a cat-themed book?! Many thanks to the Hatchette Book Group for providing five copies of Simon Tofield’s new book, Simon’s Cat, for me to give away!

Simon's Cat

Simon Tofield’s animations have taken YouTube by storm. Now, the feline Internet phenomenon makes his way onto the page in this first-ever book based on the popular animated series. SIMON’S CAT depicts and exaggerates the hilarious relationship between a man and his cat. The daily escapades of this adorable pet, which always involve demanding more food, and his exasperated but doting owner come to life through Tofield’s charming and hilarious illustrations.

  1. Count me in for the contest — I love Simon’s Cat (I’ve only seen youtube cartoons, but still!)

    Also, Mardi asked me to specifically say BOO to Chaos and May.

  2. National Cat Day?!? Every day is Cat Day around here. 😉

    The book looks very cute — I love the youtube videos.

  3. No need to enter me honey, just stopping by to see if you are having a great day!
    And I am so loving up May… We all know how fond of those books you are… But what if I offered you some Cat Nip… or some Yawn… sneaky, I know!!!
    Have a great one hon!

  4. OOOOHH add me to the mix! Both my kids and myself love going on YouTube to watch Simon and his cat! We have one that sounds just like her too!!! My four are celebrating today as they usually do because for them, EVERYDAY is Nat’l Cat Day!

  5. Fun giveaway! Thanks! National Cat Day? I had no idea. I think my spilling a little milk on the floor this morning might have been our cats’ celebration.

  6. A cat book! Must enter!
    I didn’t know there were a series of these animations – I’ve only ever seen the first one. I peed my pants watching it.

  7. Simon! Oh, I have to enter this contest. His cartoons are hilarious.

    48 hours? Oh noes! lol.

    Psst – Mayhem – your mother will undoubtedly replace those books posthaste so you won’t be without them for long. Besides, none of those covers look truly ab-worthy. 😉

  8. I believe Simon’s Cat could provide the attitude adjustment I need! Work is reaching crushing. But I’m employed.

  9. Oh, Enter my name, please. Think I’ll put this on my holiday list to purchase for other cat loving friends.

  10. OMG SIMON’S CAT!!! I am SO entering this contest! No matter how many times I’ve seen one of his cat cartoons, it never fails to send me into tearful hysterics. He perfectly sums up what it is like to live with a cat in your life (especially when they still have all of their claws like mine do).

    Thanks for reminding me of the perfect Christmas gift for my other feline-fanatic friend.

  11. I would love to win a copy of this book.
    Hey, Mayhem—–Mom will collect more books for you.

  12. Well, Happy National Cat Day to Chaos and Mayhem!
    Since you are taking away all of May’s beloved books, perhaps you should get her a jigsaw puzzle (partially constructed of course) to sit on. Our cat loved those when I was a kid. 😉

  13. Gah – now that is a book worth winning. Now is the first time ever I’ve properly full-on envied US and Canada residents!!

  14. The youtube videos of Simon’s cat always crack me up. The cat reminds me of my cat Pocky who always wants to be fed and will harangue any sleeping soul at 4 AM to get a morning feeding. Yes, please enter me in this fun contest.


  15. Oh – good contest! I love Simon’s Cat. But kitties do not get to watch the videos as it might give them ideas.

  16. Please enter me in the draw for the Simon’s Cat book.
    Sorry, Mayhem – your mom’s giving away the books!
