Garfield, bon vivant of cats, lazy, sassy, grouchy, and downright delightful, is back with an all-star cast: JON his owner, LIZ the veterinarian, IRMA the waitress, LYMAN, Jon's friend; ODIE just a dog, NERMAL, a cute kitten, and POOKY, Garfield's very own teddy bear. Together again, they're in Garfield's world now, and what he says goes -- for everyone.

- About the author -

Jim Davis was born on July 28, 1945, in Marion, Indiana. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, 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 19, 1978, syndicated in forty-one U.S. newspapers. Today it’s syndicated in more than 2,100 newspapers worldwide with more than 200 million readers, leading Guinness World Records to name Garfield The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World. 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.
