About the Author
Jim Daviswas born on July 28, 1945, in Marion, Indiana. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, where he distinguished himself by earning one of the lowest cumulative grade point averages in the history of the university. (Incidentally, a fellow classmate named David Letterman earned the other). The"Garfield"strip was born on June 19, 1978, syndicated in forty-one U.S. newspapers. Today it s syndicated in more than 2,100 newspapers worldwide with more than 200 million readers, leading Guinness World Records to name"Garfield"The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World. Davis has had many successes with"Garfield, "including four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program and induction into the Licensing Hall of Fame (1998), but his most prized awards are from his peers in the National Cartoonist Society: Best Humor Strip (1981 and 1985), the Elzie Segar Award (1990), and the coveted Reuben Award (1990) for overall excellence in cartooning."

Down on the farm, lost in a world of his own, or camping out with the gang, GARFIELD always finds a way to keep life interesting. Now that might be bad news for Jon and Odie, but it's great for the rest of his millions of fans, as GARFIELD takes the spotlight for his nineteenth star turn. Or as GARFIELD might say, when the goin gets tough, the tough take a nap.
If, like me, you are a big fan of this furry orange cat. you cannot miss it!
In the 48th book, Jon started to date Dr Wilson. However, will they continue dating, or will Dr Wilson understand the full extent of Jon's polka-karaoke night? What does Jon think about his finally having a date - and what does Garfield think?
In addition to this storyline, there are occasionally weekly themes, such as the "Beware of the Dog" and "We're bachelors, baby" (the latter doesn't quite work in book form, as the punch line became repetitious). The humour is of the same high quality as last time, but I also had the enjoyment of needing to read to see how the Jon-Wilson relationship develops, especially over the festive season.
Overall, a must buy. Incidentally, if you are a fan of Garfield, the PC CD title "Wide World of Garfield", available on the American Amazon.com website, is also a must have, containing as it does over 25 years of Garfield cartoons in electronic form for a very few dollars. (These cartoons in this book are not included in this PC CD.)
