Mutts is a particularly fun comic strip and I'm not just saying that because my name is Earl! This collection, The Mutts Winter Diaries, collects a number of winter themed strips. If there is a drawback to this concept it is that many revolve around just a couple of themes (hibernation and snowflakes). What I find works with small children is a collection of these types of books and instead of going through a book in one or two sittings go through roughly a week's worth at a sitting from several different strips.The rating I am giving is because anyone who likes the strip will enjoy it and both young and old can relate to what they deal with. It is light, fun and wintry! Just allow yourself to enjoy a nice pleasant laugh as a break.Reviewed from an ARC made available by the publisher via NetGalley.
Not only was this a great book, but it is a great comic strip too. This book pulls together the winter related strips to create a great book for the existing fan, but also for anyone that loves a great, witty comic that presents topics that all can relate to. You will laugh and truly enjoy yourself as you are reading this!*I received this for review - all opinions are my own*
This is a collection of winter-themed comic strips featuring Earl, Mooch and their various friends (human and animal). I agreed with so many of Mooch's comments about winter and snow! The Winter Diaries are pretty much what the gang gets up to or doesn’t get up to, in winter. They try hibernating. They meet a penguin, who may, just may, be a stand in for people in general, and they hang with bears. We see what the squirrels get up to and watch Mooch try to find two identical snowflakes. Some comics are funnier than others, but they're all such fun to read. Earl, Mooch and their friends truly capture the best best and worst in our feelings about winter. So much to identify with and laugh about.The artwork is as adorable as ever, and Mooch, Earl, and the gang are their usual goofy selves. I also loved how some of them were in color (no doubt originally printed in the Sunday paper).I especially loved the Human Society plug and tips in the More to Explore section at the end that talks about different critters in the winter time and how they stay warm. There are even suggestions for things you can do, and a note to keep pets inside where it's warm when it gets snowy outside.I realize this book is intended for younger readers but it is certainly a pleasure for all ages. If you love Mutts and winter, this is the perfect collection of comic strips. Also if you are an animal lover, Mutts does a lot of work for finding homes for shelter animals and supports rescuing pets rather than buying them from breeders. It’s hard not to like this strip.I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
'The Mutts Winter Diaries' by Patrick McDonnell is a series of Mutts strips about how cold it is this time of year. The humor is still great and will keep you warm.Strips in this collection focus on snow, and the chance of snow, and having to go out for walks in the snow. There are also lots of strips about hibernating, either with actual bears or just staying home in bed. All the usual cast is featured like Earl the dog and Mooch the cat. The squirrels are still accurately chucking acorns at people and animals and poor Guard Dog is just cold, but he does end up with a few cast off dog sweaters. The volume concludes with tips on what animals go through in Winter and how to help them.I liked this collection, but not as much as previous collections. I kept running into pages with just the logo of the comic in them. It was different art, but not a strip or anything, which was strange because I already knew what I was reading. It's a perfect collection for young readers, though.I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Andrew McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
This is a collection of comic strips from a series I’ve never seen, so it was interesting getting what is supposed to be a one-a-day all at once. The downside of this was not being familiar with the characters; took me a while to realize the one with the lisp is a cat. Each section features a running theme; in the first we get dogs, cats, and birds all hating snow. The dog wears a sweater, the cat loses his purr, so on. The artwork is kinda minimal, almost sketchlike, but it doesn’t detract. In a way it’s a typical comic strip: anthropomorphic animals being funny. This is steadily chuckleworthy, though some chuckles were louder than others. Don’t remember any actual laugh-out-loud moments, but certainly worth the time it took me to read it.
A wonderful collection wintertime Mutts comics, full of Earl the dog and Mooch the cat’s best antics. This loveable pair, along with their friends will keep you smiling, no matter your age.I received my copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Patrick McDonnell's Earl and Mooch are the same as any pet I have ever been owned by. I love that Mr. McDonnell is honest about the fact that there are animals without homes and animals that are sandwiched into cages to produce "stock" for pet stores. I love Mooch's dreams and his portrayal of an oracle sphinx. Earl is every dog I have had. I am definitely owned by them. I know there are 2 dogs that like Earl call me "my Marta". Goofy fun and a reminder about caring for the planet.
