Kids’ Club Review by Aadarsh: Garfield bigger and better : his 30th book

Garfield bigger and better : his 30th bookGarfield bigger and better : his 30th book, Jim Davis

This book is about a fat and lazy flabby cat called Garfield. He is very greedy and does not like cat food (he likes the food that people eat).

I like Garfield because he is more polite than usual even though he wants to get more food. I liked it when Garfield pretended to be Count Cat with a bath towel. I did not like it when Garfield raided the refrigerator and took out all of the food except cat food. I recommend this book to people who like comedy in comics. I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5.

5 stars
