Comments: "Unfair Weather" Jon gets to take his nieces Drusilli and Minerva camping along with Garfield.
The digital art does have its appeal. Garfield's eyes are used expressively. The colors are smooth and the shading looks impressive.
As they camp out the weather is really weird. What they find leads them all on one crazy adventure.
"Down On The Farm" Jon visits his brother on the farm and brings Garfield and Odie. Jon calling Doc, Doc Boy is always funny when Doc corrects him. Garfield on a farm is trouble but his knowing food is sometimes a good thing.
"Mailman Blues" A new mailman takes over the route on Garfield's street temporarily. Garfield has a step by step plan to deal with replacement mailmen. He is a sadistic cat and it is such fun to see him in action.
"The Robot" Jon's new cleaning robot is to good. Although when it goes against Garfield it is just a robot. It never stood a chance.
Garfield is a fat cat and one of the funniest orange fur balls around.

Comments: "Little Trouble In Big China" Garfield is up to his usual antics only this time in China with Odie and Nermal. The art is cute showing our threesome. The scenery in China is colorful and does show off a traditional China.
In China the pets do go on an adventure to find the most valuable treasure. They actually do but end up just sitting around eating noodles. Well it is a Garfield adventure so you know food will be involved.
"Fame Fatale" Leonardo a famous celebrity cat looks just like Garfield. Leonardo through a wonderful use of expressions is easy to see which cat is which. They are cutely drawn. Garfield and Leonardo switch places. They do each get a taste of the other's lives and its fun to watch them.
"My Friend Nermal" The dogs in this story are illustrated as mean cartoonie animals. Nermal is being nice to Garfield and enough is enough for Garfield he takes matters into his own paws. It is shown Garfield really does hate Nermal.
"Boris The Snowman" Garfield and Odie do have fun on their vacation in the snowy wilderness. It is a good time for all including the reader.

Comments: "Muscle Mouse" Biff the mouse is buffed. He does take control well until Squeak comes back. Biff is one tough big muscles mouse who gets his way while Squeak is away. Garfield is kind of a background character in this story. Biff is the main one and he is boring. The only real action is when he throws some cats out and we do not even get to see him do it. Garfield when we do see him is thinking about food as usual. Jon well he is oblivious to what is going on around him which is always funny.
"Fitness Crazed" Biff decides to get Garfield in shape through exercise. Well you just know that will not last. Garfield is way to lazy. Plus when his favorite chair and his food become at risk he acts. All's well that ends well. Love wins and Garfield gets lasagna.
"Fido Food Feline" Does eating dog food turn a cat into a dog? Or cat food to a dog? Nothing really happens. But feeding cat food to a human such as Jon. Funny things are bound to start happening.
"The Caped Avenger Strikes Again" Garfield and Odie are the Caped Avenger and Slurp. Garfield does prove to be a great super-hero he saves the day and the comic shop. Pets do make the best super-heroes well at least in this comic.
"The Mole Express" Its a lazy day for the Garfield household. When trouble strikes its Garfield to the rescue.
Garfield is the most beloved cat in the world.

Comments: "High Scale" Garfield gets put on a diet. He even has to go to the Cat Spa. This place is Cat Hell for Garfield than he wakes up. Poor Garfield gets scared and he had to exercise the horror of it. It will make you smile and laugh. The art is cute to. It definitely shows you that Garfield is fat.
"Freaky Monday" Garfield and Odie switch bodies. Odie enjoys the benefits of it. Garfield does not like being Odie. Garfield does get a better understanding of Odie and what he goes through. The art is gorgeously done showing the characters just as you expect them to be.
"Desperately Seeking Pooky" Pooky goes missing. Garfield is shown to have a big caring heart. He gets Pooky back and does the right thing. Beautiful at on the dogs and cats.
Garfield gives you the most fun you will ever have with a cat.
