    I Also Recommend:

    Great to Get kids started on reading!

    I bought several of the "Get Fuzzy" line for my 11 year old son. He already reads quite a bit of literature and this was just as a 'break' for him at the end of the day after having to read so much "content" at school. The giggles coming from the backseat of the car, library in our home or his bedroom are evidence enough that this is a great book for kids and adults alike. On occassion, he will bring it to me to show me a page he found particularly funny and I end up getting absorbed in the book as well. We have recommended this series to a friend whose son DOES NOT read in an effort to get him reading better and she claims it has helped. My 11 year old reads on a post high school level generally and her son same age is on a 3rd grade level of reading. She claims it has sparked his interest in reading more books and just reading in general at night before bedtime. It is great to see the cat and dog picking at each other and having a dog and cat at home that resemble these two characters to a tee, it is fun to read what they "might be thinking". We also have recommended Calvin and Hobbes below. Kids love reading things that give them a break from "learning", too. Just like adults. These are great for adults as well. I just like to see reading and our family enjoys reading cartoon series together as well as classics!

    Good For Lots of Laughs

    Great short comic book for easy reading when you need a quick laugh. Bucky Katt is quite the character, and Darby Conley has done well for himself by creating these characters that almost everyone can relate to in some way.

    Astounding!

    I was a Calvin & Hobbes guy only, until my friends got me hooked on Get Fuzzy. This hilarious three-some has it all: sarcasm, insults, an apartment, and plain-out stupidity. Satchel, (the dog) always has on his watch, yet he can't tell time. Rob (the owner) has to put Bucky (the cat) in a 'Bundle of Joy' baby carrier, while out in public. One of the strips, (either in this book or the sequel) is Rob, Bucky, and Satchel in a train, and sitting next to them is none other than Steve from Bloom County, and Calvin yelling at Hobbes in the next seat.

    Some of his best work!

    Personally-I thought this book was an absolute RIOT! Some of Darby Conley's best work and I have every intention of reading his upcoming book.

    Absolutely Histerical!

    This is one of the funniest books I've ever read. Bucky and Sachel are great complements to each other. Best strip since Bloom County.

    But he's only a cat . . .

    . . . and Bucky can laugh the socks off you! Whether a biker dressed in leather or a gourmet chef preparing tuna, Bucky gets the best of Satchel . . . who always wears his watch yet cannot tell time. Darb has done a great job developing endearing--yet feisty--characters. He is the most refreshing artist/humorist/animal psychologist to come along since Berke Brethard, Opus and Bill the Cat ruled Bloom County! I have been a fan of Satchel and Bucky for over a year. It is such a delight to have all the strips in one book. I can read this book over-and-over. Always brings a smile to me face and a laugh to my heart! If you have never met Bucky, Rob and Satchel--you owe it to your sense of humor to try this book.

    The Best

    This is the funniest book that I have ever read. If you have ever had a cat or a dog, you know exactly where Rob's frustration comes from. I love Bucky! I read the strip religously every day and I am so glad that there is a book that I can enjoy just as much!

    Too Funny for Words!!!

    This was the absolute most funniest book I have read. I was never really interested in the newspaper, but when I glanced at the comics a few months ago, this comic strip cracked me up, and now I buy the newspaper just to read the comic strip. This book is great and I can't wait til' the second book comes out.
