'The Mutts Winter Diaries' by Patrick McDonnell is a series of Mutts strips about how cold it is this time of year. The humor is still great and will keep you warm.
Strips in this collection focus on snow, and the chance of snow, and having to go out for walks in the snow. There are also lots of strips about hibernating, either with actual bears or just staying home in bed. All the usual cast is featured like Earl the dog and Mooch the cat. The squirrels are still accurately chucking acorns at people and animals and poor Guard Dog is just cold, but he does end up with a few cast off dog sweaters. The volume concludes with tips on what animals go through in Winter and how to help them.
I liked this collection, but not as much as previous collections. I kept running into pages with just the logo of the comic in them. It was different art, but not a strip or anything, which was strange because I already knew what I was reading. It's a perfect collection for young readers, though.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Andrew McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
