The very first of all the Garfield titles. I remember what a thrill it was to find out that I would be working for the same company that produces the books which made me laugh since I was 13. It's in this first book that we discover Garfield, the plant eating, food loving (especially lasagna!), mailman terrorizing, furniture destroying, dog hating Red Tabby and his long suffering owner, Jon. Garfield's closest companion, Pooky the teddy bear, also appears, along with Lyman, the roommate and his dumb as a dead catfish dog, Odie. So, grab your Garfield slippers, pull up a chair and dive into some Garfield history!From the Inside Flap:
Like every great lasagna, Garfield was born in the kitchen of an Italian restaurant on a winter's night in 1978, while outside snow fell like gratd Parmesan cheese. He weighed five pounds, six ounces at birth--that's big for a kitten!--and right from the start showed a passion for Italian food. the restaurant owner, forced to choose between Garfield and closing his doors for lack of pasta, sold Garfield to a pet store. Garfield thought he was a goner until Jon Arbuckle walked in the door.
The rest is history.
