Paige, the only girl among the siblings, continues her shopaholic, boyfriend-seeking antics.

Reruns from the other books that have been released. It was nice to visit the old material, but I'm glad I just borrowed it from the library.

I've loved Fox Trot since I discovered my in-law's collection when I first got here. I don't know if I should count this for my reading challenge but it was as thick as a book so maybe I will. This is just a collection of older strips from other collections but it was fun re-reading them anyways.

Meet the Fox Family. Their quirky antics are similar to a family you may know. Quarreling and competitive siblings, Peter, Paige and Jason, with parents who attempt to participate in their children's lives. Hilarity has been successfully woven into each scene.

One scene demonstrates Jason attempting to be Dr. Doolittle by inviting the little birdies to come along and either rest on his sunbathing sister or leave some droppings behind. The kids are fun characters who are figuring out how to handle

Joyce? Dostoyevsky? Updike? Morons. Can I get an Amend? Hell yes. I love Fox Trot, always neck and neck with Calvin and Hobbes as my favorite laugh-out-loud comic strip. Very few comic strips make me do that. The wit is sharp, sarcastic, dry, and often perfectly timed. The disparity in the IQs of the three kids in the family is genius in and of itself. My three year old picked this one out randomly at a used book store without my knowledge and of course I had to buy it for him. It follows a full ...more

This assortment of older strips from the Foxtrot series is a good introduction to the title. These strips, selected for kids, are most of the strips from the year 1999. The humor is accessible, and should appeal to kids and up. Jason, the younger boy, is always a wonderful mixture of academic brilliance with a kid's lack of wisdom. Thus, he creates amazing Halloween special effects, but also tries to juggle a dozen eggs, or swing from a spiderweb, with predictable results. His older siblings are ...more

Ah, to have siblings. Take the Fox family, for instance. There’s: Peter: a 16-year-old pizza lover with big dreams; Jason: a 10-year-old precocious geek with a destructive pet iguana; and Paige: a fashion-conscious 14-year-old who wants a boyfriend and wonders how anyone survives high school. All three siblings in the Fox family are zany yet typical, and each endearing in their own way. This is a collection of their sibling-est exploits, chosen from other anthologies in the comic series. Amend’s ...more

I had checked it out for Tash, because who doesn't like comics when they're ill? She loved it, and gave it back to me when she'd finished. I remember reading Foxtrot unknown years ago, when I took daily and Sunday papers, but I'd never been a particular fan. And I realize these strips were pulled out as being to interest to kids. But hey, cool, they cover summer vacations, and bench-warming, and exam weeks. Most of all what I enjoyed was the little digs at each other between family members who ...more

I'd probably rate it higher, but I'd already read all the cartoons in it; this is just a new format. My NFNT review is up here.

I guess I am an old non-adult, because I still found this collection a lot of fun. Any cartoon with a geek and a biology teacher has to be good, and Amend knows kids well. A lot of good laughs.

It may say for non-adults in the title, but I still enjoy reading it. It is focused on kids/teens though, it's mostly strips about school, shopping and parents.

A nice collection of Foxtrot strips, but I'm not sure why these are supposed to be more kid-oriented than others.
