Make Reading Fun with The Mutts

posted in: Blog, Review | 0

My kids are addicted to comics and graphic novels. My older children get the little ones excited to read when they share these types of books together. The fact that the main characters in The Mutts comics are a cat and a dog are a big plus. Even my littlest cannot get enough of Mooch and Earl’s antics.

The Mutts Winter Diaries was the perfect book to read this past weekend as we are ushered in Fall. Snowy days will be here before we know it. Maybe we should think about hibernating too!


To coincide with the release of the new book, The Mutts Winter Diaries,Richard Leeds International has designed a cozy nightshirt to give you the sweetest of dreams.

In 1994 Patrick McDonnell created the comic strip MUTTS, which now appears in over 700 newspapers in 20 countries. MUTTS has been described by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz as “One of the best comic strips of all time.” McDonnell has received numerous awards for this strip, including the National Cartoonists Society’s highest honor, The Reuben, for Cartoonist of the YearMUTTS also won awards for its environmental and animal advocacy: two Genesis Awards from The Ark Trust, The HSUS Hollywood Genesis Award for Ongoing Commitment, the PETA Humanitarian Award, and a Sierra Club award.

McDonnell is involved with many animal and environmental charities, and is a member of the board of directors for both the HSUS and the Fund for Animals. His characters have been enlisted by the U.S. Marines for their 2006 Toys for Tots holiday poster, the American Library Association’s 2007 “Read!” poster, and by the HSUS for their humane postage stamps. The MUTTS characters appear on the New Jersey Animal Friendly license plates that fund state pet population programs
