5.0 out of 5 stars Still Cranking Out Great Strips January 18, 2003
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This treasury of the comic strip Fox Trot includes cartoons from the last three collections (Death by Field Trip, Encyclopedias Brown and White, & His Code Name Was The Fox).
In case you were worried that this long running strip was running out of steam, don't. I found myself laughing my way through this book just as much as I had the previous treasuries. And not much has changed in the household. Peter and Paige still try to avoid homework while Jason loves it. Jason's still a computer geek that invents new ways to torment his sister daily. Andy still serves food the rest of the family can't stand to eat. I found myself laughing at the new punch lines for these and other favorite storylines. The humor is timeless with timely topics. I especially loved the strips on The Lord of the Rings movies. Other fun series included Marcus and Jason playing detective to find a scrap book and the family vacation. And I got a kick out of seeing ultimate Frisbee get a mention in one of the strips.
The book introduces a new format to the treasuries. Each page now represents a complete week's strips, so it's a little smaller and easier to hold while reading. Of course, Sunday strips are still in color.
Alas, there is a down side. There is almost two years worth of strips here. Plenty to laugh at, but that means it'll be two years before we can enjoy another treasury of this wonderful comic strip.

Format:Paperback
FoxTrot anthologies never cease to amaze me. I have a lot of the books separately, but these big collections are the best for when you want to read a lot without having to bring so many books with you. And plus, some of the strips are in color as well! "FoxTrot: Assemble with Care" is a great collection that is bound to get laughs from just about anyone.
This anthology includes strips from the books "Death by Field Trip," "Encyclopedias Brown and White," and "His Code Name was The Fox." All three are hilarious and make this collection worth every penny. You will follow the crazy chaos that visits the Fox Family. Just when you think Bill Amend can't do any better, he does every single time. This collection is 191 pages of non-stop hilarity.
You will see extremely funny strips, such as:
*Jason's field trip*
*Andy's mother visits*
*Jason's new Grinch cartoon*
*Moron of the Rings*
*Peter's cell phone*
*E-Team Football*
*Roger's novel*
*Jason's new playmate*
*Roger and Peter go grocery shopping*
and much, MUCH more!
"FoxTrot: Assemble with Care" is an outstanding anthology collection that will keep you entertained for hours. If you've been feeling down and are due for a few laughs, think about picking up this bad boy and let the pages fly. You will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Establishing the FoxTrot Characters April 1, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I personally enjoy most of the FoxTrot comic strips, which follow a family of five through their everyday lives. The father, Roger, is a mid-level office worker with a bland career. His wife Andy has developed a successful career as a columnist. Their children consist of Peter, a wannabe athelete; Paige, a fashion and social conscious teenager; and Jason, a nerdy elementary schoolkid.
This book really begins to establish the characters and the storytelling, which is why I only give it four stars instead of five. The first half of the book starts out with some simple jokes, gags, and storylines that the average reader would enjoy but the longtime FoxTrot fan might find a little tame. Towards the end of the book, however, the characterization is very solid, the jokes are more original, and the storylines are very good. Some of the storylines deal with quite serious scenarios (such as Jason falling off the roof of his house) with a skillful mixture of humor and seriousness that make FoxTrot the excellent comic strip that it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Comic Strip Since Calvin and Hobbes. February 19, 2004
Format:Paperback
First Bill Watterson retired and there was no more new Calvin and Hobbes. Then Charles Scultz retired and unexpectedly passed away, so many newspapers stopped running Peantus. At first it would seem there isn't anything all that funny left in the funny papers. Ah, but one grand gem remains: Fox Trot. Appearing about half a decade before the funnies started to become unfunny, Fox Trot remains as about the only witty and upbeat comic that can be seen in papers. ASSEMBLED WITH CARE is a collection of two-year's worth of Fox Trot comics. I'm not for sure of the exact dates, but the strips ran around 1999-2000. The stories make grand observations on life, but are also constantly ribbing pop culture and (then) current events. Two of my favorite story lines are the one where Jason and Marcus imagine themselves acting in the just announced production of THE LORD OF THE RINGS (the director looks like a hybrid between Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson) and the series that ran the week that Y2K could have happened (the comic strip finds itself back in 1900). A great collection of one of the best comic strips still being written.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Foxtrot Fun! December 27, 2002
Format:Paperback
I like to read Foxtrot because of it's fresh appeal and it is continually funny. Bill Ammend's latest compilation, FoxTrot: Assembled with Care, is no exception.First of all, note that this is a Foxtrot Anthology collection. So, in other words, all the comic strips in this book have appeared in their own separate books. The books that this collection is made up of are: Death by Field Trip, Encyclopedias Brown and White, and His Code Name Was The Fox.This book is the first of the Foxtrot Anthologies to follow a new format. Instead of the standard 3 strips on a page and full-page Sunday strips, all the strips in this book have been crammed in together to fit four on a page. This doesn't bother me too much, except for the fact that each line is slightly smaller.At 191 pages, this book is shorter than previous Foxtrot Anthologies; however, because of the new format, it actually has more strips included for the same cover price. It is the first Foxtrot Anthology to be made up of 3 books instead of the usual 2.All these reasons make this an excellent book and an absolutely necesary purchase for any Foxtrot fan!
