Join us 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 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.
