Now, I have been a hug fan of the “Garfield” comics for many years now as I used to read them all the time in the Sunday newspapers when I was younger. Now, I finally have the pleasure of being reintroduced into the “Garfield” comics through paper trade backs and I have been enjoying reading these classics again! Well, the twenty-sixth volume of the “Garfield” classics, which is called “Garfield Pulls His Weight,” certainly did not disappoint me with its off-the-wall humor involvi

Garfield Pulls His Weight is a good collection of Garfield comic strips that had me chuckling a few of times. I always mark the the strips that make me laugh out loud and saw a trend this time. Two of the three involved Odie outsmarting Garfield. To tell the truth, I am much more of a dog person than a cat person. Sure, I've had cats, but I would never want to have one like Garfield. He's make anyone's life miserable.

Garfield is up to his old tricks in this book of daily comic strips. He is the

Like all the other Garfield books I've ever read, Garfield Pulls his Weight is a laugh out loud enjoyable book. As per usual, Jim Davis has wonderful illustrations and great story lines. If you want a good chuckle, make sure to pick this book up!

- Most books with this rating I never finish and so don't make this list. This one I probably started speed-reading to get it over with.
- Average. Wasn't terrible, but not a lot to recommend it. Probably skimmed parts of it.
- Decent. A few good ideas, well-written passages, interesting characters, or the like.
- Good. This one had parts that inspired me, impressed me, made me laugh out loud, made me think - it got positive reactions and most of the rest of it was pretty decent too.
- Amazing.

I felt I needed a laugh. This had several good ones. My eleven year old read a couple of these and said, "That is an evil cat." :-)

I just kind of love this comic, in case you couldn't tell. This collection has more of the painful love between Odie and Garfield, many instances of Garfield's exploits with spiders (shudder), and the continuing sadness that is Jon's fashion sense. What delightful moments of hilarity.

While I won't be likely to call Garfield an amazing read, I've always really liked the comic. In my opinion, most of the time, if most of the book is pictures, it had better be funny, and Garfield always is.

I read these a lot as a kid, and while I wasn't laughing hysterically like I did back then, I still really enjoy Garfield. He never really changes, but that's okay.
