The latest film, "Fly Guy," features the feed-me feline causing chaos when he tries to catch a fly. Past films include "Cat Man Do," "Let Me In," and "TV Dinner."
The book, "Simon's Cat in his very own book," will be 240 pages of the great black and white drawings of the cat who will do anything to get fed.
In celebration of the book, Simon is holding a photo competition. You can win an original framed and signed image of Simon's Cat or other prizes by downloading and printing a cut-out image of Simon's cat, then taking a photo of the cut-out in a funny or imaginative setting, and e-mailing it in.
The book will be available on on Sept. 24.
Tofield, is an award-winning illustrator, animator and director at Tandem Films in London.
