Herding cats : a "Sarah's scribbles" collection

COMIC Sarah's
Animals, Nonfiction

"With characteristic wit and charm, Sarah Andersen's third collection of comics and illustrated personal essays offers a survival guide for frantic modern life: from the importance of avoiding morning people, to Internet troll defense 101, to the not-so-life-changing futility of tidying up. But when all else fails and the world around you is collapsing, make a hot chocolate, count the days until Halloween, and snuggle up next to your furry beacon of hope"--Back cover.

I love love love Sarah Andersen. Her name came up in a discussion with a colleague about books, imagine that, and she said she thought I might like Sarah's books. Then she told me there were in the comics section of the library. I don't read comic, or not may I told her and she said that I would be delighted. I was and you will be too. Her books, the library has three, are on adulting and I am a verifiable adult, but I still found them very funny. In fact, I laughed out loud and shared a number of the pages with my cat, Calvin. He isn't much for laughing, but I know he was amused. -Maeve

This beautiful book is a study in seasons presented through pressed flower art. You'll learn when birds build nests, why crickets chirp, what happens to deer antlers and how frogs hibernate. Each of the informational spreads is accompanied by engrossing collage illustrations made from pieces of the natural world. A wonderful way to incorporate art into science. -Morgan
