For all these past few weeks (or months), Garfield finally agrees with Jon about going on a diet. They started off this new lifestyle by eating less cat food and lasagna and eating more healthy such as savory truffles. Garfield gladly endures this pain he considers and hopefully he will get used to it. He only agrees to this new lifestyle only because Jon can stop making fun of Garfield's tummy and that way he can make it smaller. For now, we know this is going very well and successful since Garfield currently tends to pick the healthier choices when it came to food and just leave the unhealthy ones behind but will this be able to last a long time? A long time where he will be able to lose some of that body weight and be considered fit?
I think this sequel just became one of my favorite books in the Garfield series because of the graphics. They seem to pop up more than in the other sequels and there are more unique images this time. The book cover also seems to look more modern even though this sequel was written and illustrated around the late 1980s. One downside I could say about this is there is more writing on the word bubbles. I think this feature isn't that bad but this is a comic book and comic books are more about looking at visuals rather than more writing. While reading this, it made me feel the author did really try to make a change in his writing and illustrations. I would specifically recommend this book to little children and preteens because of how whimsical the images can be and this is a child-friendly book too as well. Basically, everyone of all ages can read the Garfield comics.
