Since 1978 Jim Davis’ sarcastic, orange tabby cat has entertained millions of people appearing in Newspapers, books, cartoons and even his own films. Why has a lazy, coffee drinking, lasagna loving feline become a worldwide sensation loved by millions of people? From his small-town beginnings in Muncie, Indiana, The Creation of Garfield explores our relationship with Garfield, Jon and Odie and how Davis’ characters have become such an integral part of American pop culture over the decades.

A hardback book with a familiar smiling and mischievous ginger cat decorating the cover – in part, one of the reasons I decided to review it.
Garfield was a big part of my teenaged years and this book explains the background of this adorable but full-of-attitude cat. I always felt sorry for Jon, and when Odie came along him too. But the star of the show was always Garfield himself and that's how it was intended to be.

Long live Garfield!

For the Love of Books
