How does America's foremost feline do it? There's so much lasagna to be eaten, so many dogs to kick around, that he doesn't have time to worry about current events. He is the maestro of mirth and the purveyor of puns to his millions of fans. With Garfield in your life, is there room for anything more...?

I don't know what type of fascist wrote this, but I hope he talks about it at his meetings with other Nazi's. As a member of the F.A.T (Feminists Altogether on Tumblr) and as a communist, I feel deeply offended by the sexism, racism, and anti-semetism that can be found within these pages. "Garfield Worldwide" makes repeated suggestions in a joke like form about topics such as eugenics, secret police, dictatorship, and even genocide. I have sent a copy of this book and a letter of complaint to the editors of the Geneva Convention with high hopes that they will see what this is doing to our children and move to have it banned in all countries. My child has repeatedly complained about seeing the neo-nazis at his school reading this book and using its ideas to incite fear in the other kids. It is terrible, wrong, offensive, and disgusting. This putrid novel needs to be immediately banned. It is worse than the autobiography of Mark Twain, and needs to be silenced before more people fall for the trap of fascism. Also it will never be as holy as "Garfield: The Tail of Two Kitties".

About the author (2007)

Jim Davis was born on July 28, 1945, in Marion, Indiana. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, where he distinguished himself by earning one of the lowest cumulative grade point averages in the history of the university. (Incidentally, a fellow classmate named David Letterman earned the other). The Garfield strip was born on June 19, 1978, syndicated in forty-one U.S. newspapers. Today it's syndicated in more than 2,100 newspapers worldwide with more than 200 million readers, leading Guinness World Records to name Garfield The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World. Davis has had many successes with Garfield, including four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program and induction into the Licensing Hall of Fame (1998), but his most prized awards are from his peers in the National Cartoonist Society: Best Humor Strip (1981 and 1985), the Elzie Segar Award (1990), and the coveted Reuben Award (1990) for overall excellence in cartooning.
