Summary

There's nothing like a buddy: Just ask Earl and Mooch, the adorable pets who inhabit the world of Mutts . The fact that Earl's a dog and Mooch is more of the feline persuasion makes about as much difference as a flea's eyebrow. These guys have a special friendship. Anyone who has a pet will see themselves and their beloved furry housemates in this collection, Mutts Sundays .

Yet Mutts has an audience appeal beyond pet lovers. McDonnell's art is unique in that it is reminiscent of the golden age of comic strips. That's why readers have clamored for a way to enjoy their favorite Mutts Sunday strips reprinted in their original color. In Mutts Sundays the call has been answered with a large, full-color format that--like the pair themselves--is certain to win a place in everyone's hearts. Readers will cherish escaping to the artful, colorful, and endearing Mutts Sundays strips contained in this special treasury.
