Recommends it for: fans of Garfield
This is a fun collection of five not-too-scary stories featuring Garfield and his friends. The narrative and illustrations were not created by Jim Davis, but the stories still keep most of the charm of the characters.

The stories are not like the comic strips, but more like the stories seen on The Garfield Show on television.
