Everyone can relate to having a family member with an unusual hobby or habit. The Fox clan is no different. The youngest Fox is Jason, whose best friend is an iguana named Quincy. His sister, Paige, is a shopaholic. The oldest Fox sibling is Peter, whose stomach is a bottomless pit. But perhaps the most unusual of all is level-headed mom and official family mediator, Andy, who is working through her obsession with the movie Titanic. A slave to her emotions, she is brought to tears at a mere hint of the soundtrack and attends multiple movie screenings each day. This leaves well-meaning husband, Roger, struggling to live up to her new romantic expectations. All of this is par for the course in the hilarious but hectic Fox household.
What makes the Fox clan so entertaining? They're just like us-only funnier-with no sappy sentimentality. Readers can't help but recognize a little bit of themselves in this family strip with its good-hearted, if not eccentric, characters. The Foxes deal with everything from sibling rivalry to marital disagreements over golfing habits to sharing time on the computer, always making us laugh in the process.

Bill Amends' newest Foxtrot book is the best yet! The hilarity continues with Peter's obsession with sports, Paige's troubled high-school life, Jason's scheming outlandish plans, and Andy's and Roger's reaction to it all. A MUST GET!
I have always been a fan of Foxtrot, well, ever since it took the place of Calvin and Hobbes in the local newspaper. Foxtrot is a great comic strip in general. I would have to say 9 out of every 10 days of Foxtrot are funny. I recently purchased this book, and read it cover to cover many times. It gets better after every read! I love this book, and even if you have never seen a Foxtrot comic strip in your life, you will still enjoy this book immensely.
