The Ultimate Mother Goose & Grimmby Mike Peters
Mother Goose, the off-center old bird with a motherly heart and a warrior's spirit, shares her home with the devil-may-care dog, Grimmy, and the uptight cat, Attila. For two decades, their exploits have been illustrated with hilarity and realism in the comic strip Mother Goose and Grimm. Mother Goose is a single mom who has to endure all of her pets' capers. No matter what, she loves Grimmy, the irrepressible bull terrier she thinks of as her baby.
Grimmy is a dog lover's dog. Happy-go-lucky, he's a bon vivant with a hefty appetite for fun, mischief, and yesterday's trash. He loves overindulging, chasing cars, and hanging out with his buddy, Attila.
Attila is the high-strung cat who lives with Mother Goose and Grimmy. Hardly living up to his namesake, Attila is an endearing mix of neurotic apprehension and clueless gullibility. Despite his vulnerabilities, Attila craves understanding and a playmate, and Grimmy is always ready to oblige his feline friend with some lively antics.
Mother Goose's eccentric household has entertained readers for 20 years. Distributed daily and on Sundays, Mother Goose and Grimm appears in more than 650 newspapers nationwide, boasts a readership of 100 million fans, and consistently ranks as a favorite strip in newspaper surveys.
