It's One Thing After Another! is the fourth For Better or For Worse treasury, capturing more of the early years of this beloved strip, with annotations and asides by author Lynn Johnston.
Since its debut in 1979, For Better or For Worse has touched comic strip readers as few cartoons ever do. Lynn Johnston's eye for detail and her uncanny sense of what real parents and children struggle with daily are a big part of her success. The comic strip now appears in 1,550 papers in the U.S. and Canada. Read by people of all ages, the award-winning For Better or For Worse deals honestly with both the light-hearted and the serious, and to many readers, the Pattersons feel like family!
Lynn Johnston was born in Collingwood, Ontario, and grew up in British Columbia. Today, she lives in Corbeil, Ontario. Johnston is the first woman to receive a Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year from the National Cartoonists Society in 1986. She has also received the Order of Canada and claims a star on Canada's Walk of Fame.
Written recollections, photographs and clippings from her scrapbook reveal exactly how Johnson mines her own life for Every Woman, Every Family humor and then deftly distills it to elicit laughs for people of all ages. (Florida Times-Union)
