Overview

FoxTrot is character driven, as opposed to silly situation or slapstick humor. It is one of the most entertaining comic strips in America.

Meet the Fox family:

* Roger, the sports-enthusiast father stuck in the middle rung of the corporate ladder.

*Andy, mother and mediator of the family. Always wanted lots of kids. Now knows better. Her gourmet specialty?-tofu casserole.

* Peter has never known a food he couldn't eat, but otherwise is a typical high schooler. Inherited the sports nut gene from Roger.

* Paige. Egads, a freshman! Mall rat, Cosmo queen. Knows full well Mr. Right is right around the corner . . . or the next one . . . or the next.

* Jason is the youngest sibling. This warped little genius' favorite pastimes include tormenting his sister and get-rich-quick schemes.

* And finally, Quincy, Jason's iguana. Vomits on Paige's pillow when not sleeping or eating. What more could a 10 year old boy ask for?

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Paula Rohrlick
This anthology contains cartoons about the Fox family from the books Orlando Bloom Has Ruined Everything; My Hot Dog Went Out, Can I Have Another?; and How Come I'm Always Luigi? As these titles suggest, the topics of this popular syndicated comic strip series run to popular culture and family foibles. The Fox family consists of Roger, the hapless father; Andy, the long-suffering mother; Peter, a high school student who hates studying and loves food; Paige, a high school freshman who never met a mall she didn't like; and Jason, a 10-year-old geeky genius who adores video games. Most YAs will be familiar with their clever and consistently funny adventures from the daily newspaper and will welcome this latest collection with open arms.
