Product Description

From Amazon

An early collection of the popular For Better or Worse strips, all in black and white. As the introduction states, cartoonist Lynn Johnston "knows that the only thing that hangs heavy on a mother is a toddler.... She knows that cat food is not fatal to small fry, romantic evenings at home are a myth, and a mother's first gray hair is a war wound."

About the Author

Lynn Johnston was born in Collingwood, Ontario, and grew up in British Columbia. Today, she lives in Corbeil, Ontario. Johnston is the first woman to receive a Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year from the National Cartoonists Society in 1986. She has also received the Order of Canada and claims a star on Canada's Walk of Fame.

Format: Paperback
This delightful, reality based strip has set new standards in cartoons. The Patterson bunch contend with every day issues that all readers can identify with, such as a new pet, making time for romantic interludes and running interference for the children. It is a wonderful strip that has brought many smiles to many faces for many years and we hope, many more. Let's keep up more of those days.

I've allways caonsidered "For Better or For worse my favorite cartoon, and this book is one of my favorites. The sibling rivalry, chaotic family reunions and the crazieness of getting a puppy are just some of the things that make this collection a good book. I would recomend it.

For Better or For Worse is like a fine wine, it has gotten better in time! This book was hiliarious, but the drawing style was very rough compared to Johnston's current style. I thought it was a good book, and would recommend it highly to die hard fans.
