Garfield: The All-Round Sports Star by Jim Davis
Ahhh, Naplan in May, I think I definitely need to put some light-hearted reading out there in the classroom. I grew up with Garfield and hope today's generation can still appreciate these comic strips, and that furthermore...the sarcasm, tongue in cheek statements and puns can contribute to their comprehension abilities in some meaningful and statistically measurable way. Anyone who owns a rather large cat will appreciate these humorous (note the spelling of humorous, could be in the Naplan spelling test, you never know...) glimpses into the feline world. Long suffering owner Jon can deal with just about anything Garlfield dishes up. This cat reminds me so much of our always hungry Neptune (Tuna).
