Press Release:

Join SIMON TOFIELD at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in Birmingham as he brings us SIMON’S CAT: OFF TO THE VET AND OTHER CAT-ASTROPHES. And make sure you check out our amazing range of SIMON’S CAT merchandise – all on Saturday 5th December from 1:00 – 2:00 PM!

Simon’s Cat is back and he’s facing every feline’s worst nightmare . . . a trip to the vet

In this brand new book we see Simon’s Cat face any feline’s most dreaded scenario – he’s off to the vet. And he’s not at all happy about it. Simon’s Cat: Off to the Vet is packed with over 240 pages of hilarious new gags featuring our favourite furry friend and his companions – both old and new!

SIMON TOFIELD is an award-winning animator and cartoonist. Simon was given his first cat when he was nine and now has four rescue cats, which are the mischievous inspiration for his work. He has been working as a 2D animator and designer for over fifteen years, and has worked on a diverse range of high-profile productions, including advertising campaigns for Marmite ‘Paddington Bear’ (DDB London) and Microsoft ‘Rugby’ (McCann Erickson London). As an animator, Simon developed his distinctive approach to character-based, observational comedy and developed an unusual technique by drawing on the digital tablet in a freehand way and creating the animation with a flowing, ‘straight-ahead’ approach which distinguishes the Simon’s Cat films from other animations.

UK – Goblins! Signing

000Goblins

BRIAN FROUD signs GOBLINS! at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 3rd December from 6:00 – 7:00 PM!

The bestselling team of artist Brian Froud and scholar Ari Berk have continued their exploration of the goblin realm, with a new and noxious version of the world-famous Goblins. For the uninformed, goblins are those maleficent creatures who cause all manner of havoc in the human realm. Now, thanks largely to Froud’s and Berk’s continuing carelessness, the viscid and largely nonsensical NEW volume has been unleashed on an unsuspecting public.

Among its pages are new letters of apologies and disclaimers complete with new, never-before-seen goblin art; a list of Gargle’s new titles, grants, entitlements, and responsibilities; and, sadly, much more! Also included is an envelope containing a new talisman that is guaranteed to ward off goblins.

Brian Froud is an award-winning illustrator, author, and faery authority. With his wife, Wendy, he has written Brian Froud’s Faeries’ Tales and Trolls. He is also the author of The World of the Dark Crystal and The Goblins of Labyrinth. He lives in Devon, England.
