Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Witty, urbane, sassy, and downright delightful, here are the first three original books of pure Garfield collected in one packed volume. They tell the story of the feisty feline's birth, adoption, and growth into general wonderfulness---just in case you've forgotten --and remind us why we loved him like we do. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I remembered buying each certain volume for nearly $... each back when I was still in middle school. Now that they have the 3-pack volume out, this is definitely worth buying.
- It saves you money over buying each volume individually
- 3 in 1 fun
- Great way to start collecting the whole Garfield's series
- Great for anyone! Kids, Adults, or even grandparents that love comic books
- Great way to make your kids love reading
Once you buy one, you will want to buy the other 3-pack volumes as well! When you read, be sure to wear a diaper, because it might make you pee in your pants. :)

My wife and I are both fans of Garfield, and the new, colorized versions of the Fat Cat 3-Packs are great for us. They're made out of better stuff than the old, black & white versions, and, heck, they're colorized. If you're a Garfield fan, you can't go wrong with these.

They're taller and thinner than the old format, so they fit better on a bookshelf. The paper and cover both have a better, stronger feel to them. The only way I can think of to improve it would be to release Garfield in hardcover.

My 8 year old son is slightly obsessed with Garfield. This book is just as good as all the others. The newest addition to his collection that he's really enjoying is 20 Years & Still Kicking, Garfield's Twentieth Anniversary Collection. Includes sketches from Jim Davis's original sketchbook, photos, trivia. Definitely a must have for any serious Garfield nut!

Like another reviewer here, I collected the individual Garfield books when I was around 10 or 11 years old. I've long since lost those treasured and well-worn volumes, so this was a real treat (not to mention quite a bargain).

A word of warning, though, to those who didn't follow Jim Davis' comic cat from the beginning: The early strips--mostly volume one here--are quite different from the Garfield we came to know and love. Rather than being pleasantly plump, the original Garfield was kinda mean and scary-looking. But the cynical wit was there from the beginning, as well as John, Odie and a few other soon-to-be-forgotten characters (Lyman, anyone?).

I personally think the best was yet to come when these books were originally published. But there's still much to love. And for a Garfield fan, this is simply a must-have.

Garfield is a cat that can talk to his owner named John. Garfield is the problem because he mistreats his owner. Also in his book called Garfield on town. It is were he meats his mother he doesn't like how they live thou. He also gets in trouble with gang cats. So they come for him and his family. Will they get him or will he get away? Find out by reading Garfield on town. The author's message is it's ok to have some fun. Also it's good to laugh a little. It is in our class's top ten list because it is very very funny book. Also it has a talking funny cat that is fat.

If you didn't pick up the first 3 Garfield titles when they were released in the large format full color then this is a must have for any Garfield fan. You get many cartoons for your dollar.

Growing up I loved reading the Garfield comics. My eight year old son asked for one of the Garfield comics and I was happy to oblige. This was a 3-pack which is more bang for you buck. It gets rather expensive buying each individual volume. The art is the same and the strips colors are as vivid as ever. If you love reading Cathy, Calvin & Hobbes and Archie comics, then you should check out Garfield. Who doesn't love an obnoxious fat cat??!

Highly recommend for any age! These are good clean funnies that will keep you laughing for hours.

I bought this for my 9 yr. old comic book loving son. Since I enjoyed reading them as a child I didn't have to worry about the humor being inappropriate. My son loves Garfield so much he reads to his 7 yr. brother every night. We are up to volume four and they are all in tatters because of there repeat use. Because of my older son and Garfield, my younger son has been encouraged to read more on his own and for that I am eternally greatful.
