Whether they're starting high school for the first time, devising their own Winter Olympics, or working out ways to foil their parents, the three Fox kids never fail to create pandemonium. Since FoxTrot hit syndication in 1988, the strip has rewarded its millions of faithful readers with daily doses of family fun.Now established as one of America's most popular comic strips, FoxTrot cleverly conveys the identifiably goofy goings-on in this crazy household. At the core of much of the strip's wild humor is whiz kid Jason, age 10, who tortures his parents, Roger and Andy, and two teenage siblings, Peter and Paige, with his computer skills and his pet Iguana, Quincy. One strip in FoxTrot's newest collection, Your Momma Thinks Square Roots Are Vegetables, illustrates the family dynamics especially well: When Peter makes a racy call to girlfriend Denise on his cell phone, he's shocked to find out he's actually dialed his mother. As he enters the living room, Jason not-so-innocently says, "Oh, dear. Did someone reprogram your speed-dial list again?"Day after day, FoxTrot continues to deliver fresh, irreverent, and wacky humor. You're Momma Thinks Square Roots Are Vegetables continues the tradition with its look at family life through the eyes of Bill Amend.
