One of the funniest books I have ever read, Garfield Brings Home the Bacon is truly an amazing book. The fat cat can't get enough of stealing Jon's food. Lots and lots of laughs.... and foods! READ THIS BOOK PEOPLE! Trust me, on average you'll laugh about on every page. I recommend this book to people who just need to relax and who want to read something funny.

I really like when Garfield makes
Jim Davis is still going strong. I laughed a few times, but not as much as I wanted to. I've started to prompt my kids into figuring out the irony rather than just explaining it to them. I've met with marginal success.
