Publisher Comments:

With 20 successful collections and more than 1.75 million FoxTrot books already in circulation, creator Bill Amend shows no sign of slowing down. Amend proves again and again he's a master at playing up the Fox family's eccentricities in that quirky, casual-yet-believable way his fans have come to adore.

FoxTrot has built its considerable appeal with its sincere depiction of the hilarious clashes seen in everyday family life without getting too sticky sweet. Fans of all ages can find something in Amend's work with which they're familiar, from the outrageous sibling rivalries between ten-year-old Jason and his teenage siblings, Peter and Paige, to marital squabbles over golf between parents Roger and Andy. Those fans — covering a broad audience including readers of over 1,000 newspapers and Internet surfers who hit the FoxTrot Web site more than one million times each month — will delight in owning this treasury.

Readers enjoy a delightful ride as the Fox family members give their takes on the latest in pop culture, whether it's movies such as Titanic and The Phantom Menace, Tomb Raider video games, X-files television, or the Beanie Baby collecting craze. It's sometimes surprising and always entertaining to see just how different members of the same gene pool can be.

The humorous conglomeration of viewpoints, ages, outlooks, and characters that is FoxTrot never fails to reel in and amuse those who regularly read this remarkable comic strip. Amend's appeal hastranscended traditional newspapers and has flowed onto the Internet through www.foxtrot.com. But no matter what the medium, FoxTrot's popularity grows stronger every day.
