One of the few cartoon strips that the character aged in real time which made it very endearing to her fans.
Feels natural to talk about getting old, kids moving out, university life, a family pet died after saving family member & having grandchildren.
Highly recommended.

This was an insightful peak into the life of the author/artist. She also filled gaps in the lives of her fictional characters.

A good read for fans on the famous comicstrip or those interested in the industry.
