Description

A reviewer once wrote, "If 'For Better or For Worse' seems so honestly and genuinely realized, its characters so in touch with themselves and their world, it is because they are extensions of their creator's complex and perceptive personality." In other words, the Pattersons, Lynn Johnston's fictional family of more than 20 years, feel real to more than 220 million readers because they're real to her. With this new edition of the calendar to enjoy, we can be a part of the Patterson family every day. Through Michael and Deanna's wedding, John and Elly's grapple with middle age, Grandpa Jim's 80th birthday celebration, April's colorful hair experiments, and Elizabeth's relationship woes, we've been a part of every celebration and witness to every sadness, which makes the Patterson family more like our neighbors, rather than a figment of Johnston's imagination. As Johnston, a recipient of the Reuben award-cartooning's greatest honor-succinctly put it, "life deserves to be respected and applauded for whatever it can contribute." Day after day she does, for better or for worse.show more
