Overview

"Has there ever been a comic strip quite like FoxTrot? That is, a genuine, family-comedy strip?...Well, then, enjoy Amend's unfailingly delightful takes on the abrasions of family life." —ALA Booklist

Anyone who's ever experienced the turmoils of family life will relish this FoxTrot treasury, Enormously FoxTrot. A wild and witty compendium comprising the best-selling collections Bury My Heart at Fun-Fun Mountain and Say Hello to Cactus Flats, this colorful saga of the Fox family will inspire laughs and instant recognition.
From the endurance test of together-time vacations to the always chaotic goings-on at work, home, and school, the Fox family exhibits the day-to-day lunacy that comes with family life—a life that includes the trials of dad Roger's computer ineptitude and mom Andy's culinary adventures. The Fox siblings—Peter, Paige, and Jason—display a recognizable, albeit quirky, look into the real world of growing up.

Cartoonist Bill Amend, who was referred to by the Los Angeles Times as "one of the nation's best young cartoonists," bolsters this realistic portrayal by keeping his characters in the real world of Nintendo and Barney, Super Bowls and tofu casseroles, overdue book reports and overly painful trips to the mall. The personalities and humor of FoxTrot are timeless. We all know these people.

FoxTrot reveals the humorous side of family trials and tribulations like no other comic strip in America. With Enormously FoxTrot, readers will be able to enjoy the engaging Fox family more than ever!

Anyone who's ever experienced the turmoils of family life will relish this third FoxTrot treasury. A wild and witty compendium of bestselling collections, this colorful saga of the Fox family will inspire laughs and instant identification with the humorous side of family trials and tribulations like no other comic strip in America. Full color.
