My favorite newspaper comic strip is Mutts. I love the "old time" style Patrick McDonnell uses. He also authored a great book about George Herriman, the cartoonist who scratched out the great Krazy Kat in immortal ink. Anywho, "The Gift Of Nothing" started as an idea last year, as I recall, and this year McDonnell has released a cute, little book illustrating the story. I put this one up there with Shel Silversteins' "The Giving Tree". Now, both of those are worth giving this holiday.
