Garfield - The Cat with More Than 9 Lives
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Garfield. I had a poster on my closet door. I had a plush propped against my bed pillows. I had several stationery sets for writing letters to my friends and family back in the States. I had a stack of Garfield comics checked out from the local library. This was in the 1980s, people. How can Garfield still be so ridiculously popular in 2012!?
Because he is. Make no mistake. The cat that first appeared in a comic strip in 1978, the cat that holds the Guinness record for world's most widely syndicated comic strip -- he STILL spawns books, TV shows, and movies. And kids can't get enough of him.
Want to see what's made Garfield such a lasting character? Stop by the Graphic Novels (the ones with the light blue stickers) and grab a couple of his books. Browse through the G section of the movies for Garfield, Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties, the Garfield & Friends series, or The Garfield Show series. And make sure you check out Mary Annn's eye-catching display by the main desk in the Kid Zone.
