Canongate author Simon Tofield has signed a three-year worldwide syndication deal with the Daily Mirror for his cartoon Simon's Cat.
The illustrations will appear, for the first time in colour, in the newspaper from today (21st February).
Tofield said "It's been a lifelong ambition of mine to create my own comic strip and book. Now I've published two books, Simon's Cat having his own strip in the Daily Mirror is like a dream come true!"
Simon's Cat videos have attracted more than 116m views on YouTube. Canongate has two titles about the pesky feline, Simon's Cat and Simon's Cat: Beyond the Fence, with two more lined up.
