Overview

For fans who have read For Better or For Worse, the Patterson family is like their own family. Full of love and humor, the Canadian clan embodies the ups and downs of everyday family life: John and Elly facing the reality of being middle-aged; daughter Elizabeth becoming more independent on her own at college; son Michael secretly marrying his longtime love, Deanna; and daughter April learning how to deal with a bully. The strip expresses life at its most heartwarming and humorous. In Family Business, the Pattersons gather forces to buy and reorganize a toy store where Elly has worked for years. Through their efforts to clean out the basement, put a miniature train display in the front window, and add hobby supplies, the Pattersons learn even more about their relationships with each other. As Grandpa Jim tells April, "What, with the new business, John's model trains, Mike's love life, Elizabeth, and you, there's never a dull moment!"

Over the years, Lynn Johnston has been lauded for her realistic portrayal of family life and for approaching serious subjects with honesty and compassion. Farley, the family dog, for example, died after heroically rescuing April in 1995. Elly's father, Jim, moved in with the family after his wife died, and finally started dating again. For Better or For Worse resonates with families everywhere.

    Another Great Read by Lynn Johnston

    This is one of the best For Better or For Worse collections yet! It tells the story of the Patterson's and their opening of the family business, a bookstore. I have followed the Pattersons for many years now and they have yet to disappoint me. Every page had me laughing and I look forward to the next collection being published.
