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."

Can you ever go wrong with Garfield? Here we have two cute stories. First, the title story is a joyful Christmas story in which Garfield, Jon and the gang learn about the homeless and stray pets, with a heartwarming end. This is followed with a short where Jon stays in a house haunted by a ghost cat to get some quiet while working. Garfield helps the ghost make John believe in ghost cats to set the spirit free. Lots of fun.

Format: Paperback
This book is a good read for any Garfield fans. It is full of short garfield comic strips just like what you would see in the garfield episodes.
Synopsis:
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.

I have ordered this book two days ago, it arrived today. I should say I`m becoming a "Garfield-addicted"! I liked it so much, I`ll offer one to a friend of mine who is turning 25 this year and who loves Garfield equally. The perfect gift!
If, like me, you are a big fan of this furry orange cat. you cannot miss it!

By AquaViola TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 9 Mar. 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is in the 49th book of the American series of Garfield and, as per the recent American books, it is roughly the width of an A4 piece of paper, and two thirds the height. It is in colour throughout, and includes all of the daily strips, including the Sunday strips, between 6 August 2006 and 3 March 2007.

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.)
