Review of Jim Davis' The Garfield Treasury
I enjoyed this treasury, which is based on the Sunday comic strip about a cat named Garfield, his owner, Jon Arbuckle, and their house companions, Lyman and his dog Odie. Garfield is a most lovable cat most of the time. He has his problems, one of them being that it wasn't his idea for Odie to move in. Of course, Garfield's owner gets frustrated with him sometimes, but I believe that happens between sentient beings all the time in real life. Garfield likes sleeping in, eating, and generally getting into mischief. He seems to enjoy eating human food more than his own. I think most cats are like that. Mine, at least, seem to enjoy certain kinds of human food, especially fish and cheese. In one of the page-long comic strip vignettes it's made clear that, like me, Garfield has problems with people hurting each other during times of conflict, stealing from each other, and not having a great deal of pride in their homes and neighborhoods, among other things. If you want to read a cat story, but don't have a great deal of time, this is the book for you! After reading this treasury the first time, I wanted more of them. And more came out! Each time a new treasury has come out, I've made sure to buy a copy. If you like Garfield the cat, you will, too.
