    In this eleventh collection of strips, Garfield receives Stretch the rubber chicken as a birthday present and has oodles of fun with it; he also gets lost around the holidays, only to see his mother for the first time in ages. Hilarious at times, touching at others, it's a testament to the power of comic strips; they can tell a great story, and make you smile and laugh...or warm your heart. EDIT: I wanted to add that the bonus page in this book features Jim Davis' advice to aspiring cartoonists; In this eleventh collection of strips, Garfield receives Stretch the rubber chicken as a birthday present and has oodles of fun with it; he also gets lost around the holidays, only to see his mother for the first time in ages.

EDIT: I wanted to add that the bonus page in this book features Jim Davis' advice to aspiring cartoonists; even though I can't draw to save my life, I've always liked that feature, especially when he mentions that people don't usually laugh at a comic strip because it's funny, but because it's true. I wish there was more comedy that was grounded in reality, instead of unrealistically exaggerated situations that will likely never happen in real life.

    Garfield is always a fun, easy comic where you can leave your brain at the door but enjoy plenty of snickering at the felines' bizarre and selfish antics. A cute book that's fun to look through.

    I used to collect the Garfield books (and bookmarks) and this was a trip down memory lane! Still funny after all these years (32, to be precise!)

    This one is a bit better than the others. A few jokes a bit darker than the newer ones. Less repetitive cartoons/gags/jokes.

    Reading an old copy of this book I got at a library sale before passing on to someone else. So much nostalgia! Lots of little laughs, Garfield is timeless.

    Aaaaaaaah, my first glossy rectangular Garfield book! Such contentment! You weren't very cool if you didn't have one of these back in the day. Somehow, this was the only one I ever ended up getting my hands on, but I knew kids who had pretty impressive Garfield libraries. I just kept reading this one over and over again. Once you hit eighth or ninth grade and it sinks in that the world isn't a magical playland for your own personal amusement, funnies tend to mysteriously lose their funniness (th Aaaaaaaah, my first glossy rectangular Garfield book! Such contentment! You weren't very cool if you didn't have one of these back in the day. Somehow, this was the only one I ever ended up getting my hands on, but I knew kids who had pretty impressive Garfield libraries. I just kept reading this one over and over again. Once you hit eighth or ninth grade and it sinks in that the world isn't a magical playland for your own personal amusement, funnies tend to mysteriously lose their funniness (though like myself you may continue to glance over them in vain for nostalgia purposes, if not much else), and sadly Garfield was no exception. He does, however, put me completely at ease, and that's more than a lot of things can do. As lame as the cartoon now seems (and let's just go ahead and pretend those movies don't exist, yes?), Garfield's shitty attitude was a much-needed tonic for the tiresome emphasis on manners and cooperation constantly being shoveled down my throat in school and church back then, and I'll happily lend my future child my own dogeared copy once he or she inevitably starts coming home with unimpressive report cards. On another note, "Garfield Rolls On" instilled in me a lifelong fear of eggs. In one of the cartoon, Jon cracks an egg, screams "Oh yuck!", and runs away. Garfield takes a blase look into the frying pan, gives the reader one of his sleepy-eyed, wry sidelong grins, and notes "It's not often you see a yolk with a beak." I loved reading this book, but I always kind of dreaded the page with that cartoon on it, although yelling "Oh yuck!" is funny.

    Garfield is a classic comic. It has withstood the ravages of time is and still quite popular even after 25 years. Although I prefer the earlier looks of Garfield, he can still bring a smile to my lips. Like any other Garfield book, I like the longer storylines that Jim Davis occasionally does. One shots are okay, but nothing adds to the flavor of a good daily comic strip like a continuing story from day to day. It really keeps the reader coming back for more.

    I was addicted to these as a kid. I drove my parents insane following them around demanding, "Read this one!" I'm sure that my Dad regretted owning a bookstore. As an adult, I foster cats, and every foster kitten has a picture taken in a box labeled "to: Abu Dhabi." None of my two personal cats are obese, but one is especially adept at tossing chihuahuas off furniture using only one paw... I was addicted to these as a kid.

    Garfield is second only to Footrot Flats when it comes to my most-loved comic strips, and even then, it's only by a smidgeon. Garfield is second only to Footrot Flats when it comes to my most-loved comic strips, and even then, it's only by a smidgeon.
