"Jim Davis, the author and illustrator of the Garfield comic strip, has a very wry and ironic sense of humor. Garfield the cat keeps his aloof perspective on the world of his human servant, Jon, and his silly, not-too-intelligent companion Odie. We are the beneficiaries of Garfield's point of view to the point of frequent laughter.

This book is a collection of strips drawn in 1992. Here is a selection of the vignettes for your consideration. In the opening of a strip Jon runs yelling "Giant rat!" Garfield watches nonchalantly as Jon runs off strip. Garfield then wonders whether he mentioned that he shaved Odie. In another strip Garfield intrigues us with his Birdbath of Death. In yet another strip Garfield discovers that a stack of cookies he just ate may have included a coaster.

Books about Garfield are consistently humorous, often to the point of needing to laugh out loud. Be sure you read this book alone. If not, everyone will think you are crazy for laughing so much. Enjoy!"
