Quickie Review: Herding Cats: a Sarah Scribbles Collection by Sarah Andersen

Herding Cats: a "Sarah Scribbles" collection by Sarah Andersen earned a 4 star review from me. It's an interesting collection of comic strips. You might like it even more if you happen to be an introvert, an artist, or a pet lover.

In Big Mushy Happy Lump Sarah discovered her love for cats. This continues into Herding Cats. There are many strips showing her interacting with a cute black cat (like on the cover).

Also, there are several strips showing her attitudes towards being an artist and an introvert. I am somewhat of an introvert and found myself nodding along with some of the strips, including one where she avoids conflict by saying yes when someone asked her for a favor when she really wanted to say no. Of course you don't have to be an introvert to have that happen, which makes it even better.

The latter part of the book is dedicated to giving advice to artists online, especially younger artists. I thought this was a valuable, interesting read. It includes advice on how to take criticism and suggestions for how to handle trolls among other things.

All in all, it's a good read. Mostly humorous, it generated lots of smiles, laughs, and some nods. It's worth a read. If you enjoyed either of her previous collections, you will like this one as well.

Herding Cats is due to be released March 27, 2018 from Andrews McMeel Publishing.

You can check out more of Sarah's work online on Facebook, Twitter, and at GoComics.
