When food is your life, it's hard to think of anything else. Still, Garfield manages. Whether it's time to clean out Jon's drawers his way, finding a hiding place that's too good, or discovering he can sleep in any position, half the fun of Garfield is watching his between-meal antics. In his twelfth book, he's up to his usual tricks, and that's all his fans need to hear.
Jim Davis was born July 28, 1945, and was promptly dropped on his head, explaining his lifelong desire to become a cartoonist. Jim Davis grew up on a small farm with his parents, his brother and 25 cats. As an asthmatic child, Jim spent a lot of time in bed and with little more than his pencil, paper and imagination, he created pictures, which he soon discovered were more fun when accompanied by words.
