The quote on the back cover says it all. Basically, do you remember all those stupid things you did as a kid? Well, me neither. Fortunately, for us Rick Stromoski does. And boy, how well he remembers. Almost ever strip gets at least a chuckle from me, and a couple made me laugh so hard my side hurt. One thing potential buyers may need to know. The family is Catholic and several of the strips have Catholic humor in them. But the good news is that they're generic enough for non-Catholics to enjoy. So spend a few dollars for some very good G-rated laughs.

Soup to Nutz is the best comic strip I've ever read. The book is full of this wonderful comic find. I discovered it on a comics website months ago and have been reading it everyday since. The children are adorable, especially Andrew...the character designs are just so creative and refreshing. Very funny stuff, sometimes laugh out loud funny, sometimes worth a chuckle, the misadventures of the kids are always entertaining.

A strip that is suitable for the whole family and could probably be enjoyed by the adults as well as the kids. I am amazed at how anyone could make such a great comic each and every day. If you're a comic strip fan, or someone who has just started reading comics on a regular basis- this is one of the best out there, and you'll be glad you discovered it.

If you don't normally read the cartoon strips in the newspaper, Soup to Nutz is the very best of what you've been missing. I have yet to read a page of this book where at least one cartoon didn't leave me laughing out loud, desperatly finding others to share the hilarity with.
This by far is the best cartoon strip of the new century. Not only excellent family humor, but brilliant, subtle social and political commentary. Our local paper also carries Mallard Fillmore, and after enduring it's sledgehammer approach, Soup to Nutz is a tremendous breath of fresh air that even surpasses Doonesbury.
I anxiously await the second course!
