Waiting on Wednesday: 10.20.10

Today's selection won't be released in the US for quite awhile, but I was so excited to hear about it I had to feature it today anyway.

Simon's Cat: Beyond the Fence by Simon Tofield

About the Book (from "Simon Tofield's animations have taken YouTube by storm. This 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."

Yeah, I know the description isn't very exciting. But Simon's Cat is one of my favorite things to watch on YouTube and I loved, loved, loved the first Simon's Cat book. So I was super excited to hear about this one.

Simon's Cat: Beyond the Fence will be released here in the US on June 2nd, 2011 (I believe the UK edition will be out before that) and is available for pre-order on (if you can wait that long!):

And in the rare case you haven't seen me gush about Simon's Cat before, here's one of the videos for your viewing pleasure:

Great waiting on Wed...Today I was just telling someone about your last Simon's cat "The Box" that you posted so how very fortunate that a book is coming out.

Simon's cat is a terric book to read/look at pics when you need a laugh. I find myself chuckling every time. Sometimes out right laughing. So funny. If you love animals you will love this book if you don't you will still laugh. As the home with 4 cats I have laughter every day with at least one of my furry friends.

Being a family of kitty lovers, we really enjoy Simon's Cat. And I think there's a little bit of Simon's Cat in ALL our furbabies ;D
