Patrick McDonnell possesses an elegance of line and narrative that both transcends and defines his medium. His artistry is in his Zen-like clarity, his simple direct address, and his unique understanding of the essential animal-human continuum. When one experiences MUTTS, one experiences genius." -Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones

A wonderful comic strip. Whimsical with just a hint of Zen. If you love Peanuts and Pogo and Krazy Kat--especially Krazy Kat--you'll like this.

"Dog-Eared: Mutts" is a fantastic book. It was written and illustrated by Patrick McDonnell. It is no doubt that this book is the greatest I have ever read in my life. It combines 3 great things: humor, comics, and animals. Did I mention that I just adore the illustrations in this book? One thing that really stood out for me in this book was a specific comic strip. It said that apparently the difference between "here" and "there" was the "T."
Mutts doesn't really have a main storyline. This boo

Another collection of Mutts cartoons, humorous, some stand-alone, some stories, and some variations on a theme.

Features New Year's resolutions. Takes on "Roses are red, violets are blue" for Valentine's Day. A sequence of gags on bees. Mooch as the All Knowing Sphinx. Mooch's pet snail, that he names Little Earl. Mooch writing his autobiography. Worrying when on vacation -- Earl wants to know who's barking at the mailman.

McDonnel is a comic strip genius, in my opinion. His artistic talent combined with his wit and wisdom make for fun reading. One thing I particularly like about this Mutts collection is the wisdom of the Shphinx strips. I would suggest, though, that you start with the first collection of strips so you can get the full story behind Earl and Mooch and all their friends and family.

I love Mutts, and this one is a particularly good collection. I like the play on words in the title comic. The humour throughout is good, but he also includes more serious topics like animal welfare on a regular basis.

Another wonderful MUTTS collection.
It was a nice change of pace. I still prefer Calvin & Hobbes.
