Review: The Mutts Winter Diaries by Patrick McDonnell

Yesh! Mooch, Earl, and all their endearing Mutts friends are back in this second Mutts collection for kids!
Mutts highlights the adventures of Earl the dog and Mooch the cat, best buddies who regularly come in contact with Shtinky Puddin', Sourpuss, Guard Dog, and Crabby--as well as an assortment of whimsically rendered humans. This cast is capable of endless antics, interspersed with thoughtful views on both the animal and human condition. And whether they're raiding garbage cans or basking in full-frontal belly rubs, Mooch and Earl always have a comment to clinch the scene.

Mutts is one of the comic strips that I always read when check the newspapers' comic section.

In The Mutts Winter Diaries, readers are treated to the adventures of Earl, Mooch and the gang during winter.

Aside from the comic strips, some of which were in black-and-white while the others were in color, there was also a feature at the end that explained the winter habits of some animals that you may see in your neighborhood, as well as what you can do to help them out during the winter.

While I wasn't laughing out loud while reading this book, I definitely still had a smile on my face. The characters are so cute and sweet, and while most of their adventures and ambitions were simple, they were still nice to read about, especially if it's snowing or cold outside or you just wish it was winter already. My favorite of the story lines was when Mooch was looking for his purr. That one was quite nice and charming.

Thanks to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for the e-ARC.
