Kids’ Club Review by Harshit Kumar: Garfield : the Monday that wouldn’t end

Garfield : the Monday that wouldn’t end / Davis, Jim

I rate this book 5 stars because the story is about when Garfield wakes up with his head slammed on the roof. Then he throws the alarm clock and it comes back straight into his mouth. After he spits it out, he rolls on a ball and lands in the toilet. Then he holds onto the blind and he gets covered in the blind and falls down. Then he grabs a cup of coffee but the cup breaks. When Garfield goes outside, he bumps into Odie who was running. Then he got smacked into a pie and gets chased by a dog. T hen Garfield finds himself in a loop with the same thing repeating over and over again. Then one time he makes a plan to avoid everything but when he gets the fudge pops, he gets hit by a bus and he repeated what happens but this time he gets hit by the bus in a hot dog truck. Then he realizes that Nermal puts her in the loop and there is a comic about Nermal but in the end Garfield changes the background to the Arctic ocean and he is on a raft, then they move to Abu Dhabi and Garfield gets back to his home and out of the loop.

5 stars

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.
