Garfield #49: Garfield Weighs His Options: His 49th Bookby Jim Davis
Synopses & Reviews
TO EAT, OR NOT TO EAT?
That's a stupid question! The fat cat was born to binge, and while some might call it gluttony, Garfield prefers to think of it as eating proactively. Besides, someone needs to keep the surplus donut population under control. In this latest collection of comics, the heavyweight of humor tips the scales with a veritable metric ton of laughs.
Garfield returns--weighing more than ever--for his 49th book, another must-have for Garfield fans. Full-color illustrations throughout.
About the Author
Jim Davis was born on July 28th, 1945 in Marion, IN. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, IN where he distinguished himself by earning one of the lowest cumulative grade point averages in the history of the university. (Incidentally, a fellow classmate named David Letterman earned the other). The Garfield strip was born on June 19th, 1978, syndicated in 41 US newspapers. Today it's syndicated in more than 2,500 newspapers worldwide with 263 million readers. Recently, Guinness World Records‘, named Garfield "The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World."
Jim Davis has had many successes with Garfield including four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program and induction into the Licensing Hall of Fame (1998), but his most prized awards are from his peers in the National Cartoonist Society: Best Humor Strip (1981 and 1985), the Elzie Segar Award (1990), and the coveted Reuben Award (1990) for overall excellence in cartooning.
