John and Elly Patterson and family could very well be North America’s favorite funny-page family. The Pattersons share their everyday joys and sorrows, frustrations and successes while they raise their young family. Elly struggles with writing a column for the local paper and keeping up with the kids. John is full of surprises and stories from his dental practice. A wonderful portrayal of family life in the early 80’s. The book includes photos, newspaper clippings and commentary on the real stories behind the strips.
