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."

Johnston is the first woman to receive a Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year from the National Cartoonists Society in 1986.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but the later ones get better! May 7 2004
By Meg
Format:Paperback
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overstated situations, but still amusing. Jan. 7 2005
By Charles Ashbacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a collection of strips from the syndicated "For Better or For Worse" comic strip. It highlights the trials and tribulations of the modern couple trying to raise children. The father is a dentist, there are two children, a boy and a girl and the main character is an overextended mother. As a single parent, I found many of the overworked parent situations to be overdone, but they were still amusing. Examples are the student teacher conferences, planning a vacation, keeping school supplies safe until school starts and whether or not you have a pet.

If you are married and think that your life is atypical, read this book and smile. Although the specifics may differ, all couples with children must deal with nearly all of the circumstances this couple copes with.
