Who doesn't get a monster-sized--er--kick out of Grimmy? And now he's back in a brand-new collection from Pulitzer Prize winner Mike Peters. To his more than 100 million fans, Grimmy is the eponymous hero of Mother Goose and Grimm, the hugely popular comic strip that appears in more than one thousand newspapers nationwide. Grimmy is the bulliest of bull terriers. He's brash, cocky, highly opinionated, and hilariously urbane. He's the King of Tut of trashcans. Grimmy thinks a postman is the ideal chew toy. And a cat? Let's just say he's no fan of Fifi's. And his fans wouldn't have him any other way.

Mike Peters is a nationally syndicated cartoonist. He has won both the Pulitzer Prize and the Reuben Award for his editorial cartoons. He lives in Siesta Key, Florida.
YA-The imaginative and indecorous yellow dog created by the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist appears in this collection of black-and-white weekday and a few Sunday color strips originally published between 1996 and 1998. Grimm has the social wit of a 13-year-old boy so there is a fair amount of scatological content, but nothing that would deem a more restricted rating than PG. In addition to stories about the dog; his owner Mother Goose; and his best friend, a large cat named Atilla, there are occasional panels featuring unrelated characters and tales. Most in this latter category, as well as many of those featuring Grimm's cast, rely on puns or malapropisms. Some of the humor requires that viewers be acquainted with popular culture across several decades rather than offering cutting-edge commentary. Most of the selections, however, require familiarity only with such commonplace events as eating pizza and raw cookie dough, walking in frightening surroundings, or failing to do one's chores. Grimm will find an audience among middle schoolers and adults, with most high school comics readers bypassing his hearty merging of witty crassness and conventional funny paper adventures as they lack the compelling attraction of current superheroes or a trenchant third-millennium outlook.
