Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful book - we need another! Having read Betty in a Norwegian comic that comes out once a month, I looked it up on the internet and found it under a comic Web site, but not a mention of a book. I sent an e-mail to the authors and got a nice reply with a link to Chapters back, and sent off for the "Betty" book. This is one of the best comic strips around - it never ceases to amaze me (or my husband, or my kids) how the authors get all these little situations in life and relationships just right!!! Their depiction of a family relationship, as well as most other aspects of people's everyday lives, is just about perfect. But we need another book - more! more! more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Betty Betty is my favourite cartoon -- she's funny, spunky, down-to-earth. She's a working mom, with a great cast of characters. Betty is the first collection from the daily strip that runs in the Globe & Mail plus other papers. It's written by two Edmonton cartoonists, and it's really funny.
