Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up—As Amend explains, these selections are by far the best from all of the math-, science-, and computer-themed strips that he has penned during his 20-plus years of creating "FoxTrot." Some do require a bit of nerdiness to fully appreciate them, but most of the strips will elicit chuckles from just about anyone. Besides the obvious virtue of the inherent fun in reading these comics, this collection also offers a look back at Amend's progression as an artist, which is especially interesting now that he has ceased to produce his daily strip. Buy this volume even if you have the complete set of "FoxTrot" books, just for the enjoyment of finding these themed strips in a single collection.—Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, WI
