Fans and critics have been alternately checking under their seats and raving about the realism of the parenting experience depicted in Baby Blues for years. That realism is no accident (nor the result of illegal wiretaps). Parents themselves, cocreators Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott have an infinite wellspring of material at their disposal.

    I hadn't heard of these until my father said he'd picked them up and asked if I'd like them. As soon as I started the first one, I recognized the name Jerry Scott and wasn't at all suprised that he is one of the co-creators of Zits, which is another of my favorite cartoons. I really enjoyed this treasury. There were many stripes that all stay at home moms or all parents could relate to. Even the ones that were more based on character were still funny.

    My first "deep" foray into Baby Blues. I have read it casually from time to time over the past several years in the local newspaper but have not received the paper regularly over that time. I really enjoyed the collection, especially after living with a kid over the past 3+ years. I would suggest it and and moving on to the next treasury in the series, "Framed".

    Sadly this is the only book I've completed in the last month; however, I did laugh out loud a number of times throughout. The cartoonist really has a grasp of what happens in family life - the craziness of kids and parents - and reminds me to see the humor as it's happening.

    Meh. It was typical Baby Blues. Cute, but it's no Calvin and Hobbes, that's for sure.

    Bought this one hoping it was the Baby Blues I remembered - unfortunately, all I got were a few mild points of amusement. Seems like I stopped reading the comic before this point, and it just wasn't my cup of tea. Still enjoy the writing style and cartooning, but the content was a bit lacking in this compilation, for me.

    I haven't subscribed to a regular newspaper in awhile, so I'm sure I'm behind on lots of comics, but I thoroughly enjoyed catching up on "Baby Blues" with this collection that was a birthday present. It was the perfect light reading while sitting out in the hallway waiting for children to fall asleep.
