"The Fox household is a nonstop, always funny, battleground; humor that hits home for anyone who's ever been part of a family." --Bookwatch
There is no doubt that the Fox family is one of the favorites of the cartoon strip world.
Through the five Foxes in FoxTrot Beyond a Doubt, cartoonist Bill Amend creates a comic peek into what family life is really like: trying. Between son Jason's elaborate schemes, daughter Paige's attempts at cooking, and son Peter's indoor football games, life is rarely dull for parents Andy and Roger Fox.
In this treasury, which is comprised of bestsellers At Least This Place Sells T-Shirts and The Return of the Lone Iguana, the Foxes find themselves again surviving an amusing round of adventure, from their summer vacation at Fun-Fun Universe, to Paige's adventures in baby-sitting, to Jason's inaugural ice-cream date. At the same time, the Foxes also face a variety of real-life situations, from thermostat wars to forced vegetarianism to Roger’s challenges with a workplace efficiency expert. All in all, this spirited family of five gives fans by the millions a daily dose of reality with a side-splitting helping of humor.
Like a hot latte on a cold, rainy day, Café Adam is sure to warm the hearts of comic readers everywhere. In this sixth collection, cartoonist Brian Basset focuses on a whole host of compatriots who hang out at the local coffeehouse, log in remotely, and compare work-at-home notes.
The humor and appeal of FoxTrot derive from the interaction of it's characters, not from silly events imposed from without." -Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes
Everyone with a brother or sister knows about sibling rivalry, but when it involves Peter, Paige, and Jason Fox, the chaos that ensues is hilariously one of a kind. In Bill Amend's comic strip, FoxTrot, the three kids continuously push each other's buttons while parents Roger and Andy try somehow to keep up. Amend's insightful peek inside the Fox family provides fans with recognition and laughs.
Wildly FoxTrot featuers all the cartoons (including full-color Sunday's) from the best-sellers, May the Force Be With Us, and Take Us to Your Mall, and includes a special illustrated story.
