"Tofield's cartoons stand tall--hilarious, loving observations of a privileged and bossy housecat...What elevates Tofield's simple but expressive line drawings above the large litter of competing kitties is his keen grasp of cartoon physics and comedy cat antics.

And the greatest surprise yet? The entire book is in pictures!"--National Geographic Kids DogEared Book Blog"Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos continues the tradition of whimsically wordless, black-and-white cartoons about the antics of the playful, pushy, and ever-hungry pet...AlthoughSimon's Cat in Kitten Chaos inevitably invites comparison to the popular newspaper comic character Garfield (and 'the world's cutest kitten' Nermal), the wordless, often action-filled panels are quite different in that they feature pure, rambunctious feline behavior, as any cat owners can attest--any
