    Shtop and Shmell the Roses? Yesh!

    Another wonderful anthology of Mutts by Patrick o'Donnell, whose unique artistic style continues to grow on me. Mutts combines humor and insight in a comic that is topical, humorous, and always delightful.

    If you're a fan of Patrick o'Donnell, this isn't one to pass up.

    Wonderful

    Another wonderful book featuring the adorable Earl and Mooch and pals. Brings attention to the plight of pets chained or dumped. Touches on animals facing extinction, relevant to the earth we live on. There is plenty of happy, cute, adorable, funny, with happy endings stories in the book.
