If you are looking for a book to give you a few laughs then AAAA! A FoxTrot Kids Edition by Bill Amend is for you!

FoxTrot is a popular comic strip about the Fox family. FoxTrot stars:

  • Jason (10 year old brainy little brother who loves to get on his sister’s nerves with the help of his pet iguana Quincy)
  • Paige (14 year old sister who is very girly girl)
  • Peter (16 year old brother who is into sports)
  • their parents – Andy & Roger Fox

Middle schoolers (and even adults) will enjoy the Fox family antics while these three kids drive each other and their parents crazy. The FoxTrot comics cover topics like school, dreaded homework, baseball and other sports, school crushes, and the everyday life of being in a family.

AAAA! has laughs for everyone and you will laugh out loud!
