Library Journal Review

Andersen's latest "Sarah's Scribbles" collection is a scream. Simple art matches perfectly with the cartoonist's style of humor, tackling topics such as misogyny, anxiety, careers, and cats. Her talent is in showing how easily many identify with the fears of the main character, how we associate our lives with hers but also laugh along with her at these experiences. For example, she illustrates how people will go gaga over a kitten but are unable to pick up a baby. Or how sometimes you just want to hide under the covers to avoid being seen by the monster "being social." The humor is nonstop, and before you know it, you've read the whole book and are going back looking for favorites. VERDICT A must read. Andersen's appealing art as well as her remarkable ability to keep coming up with relatable (often unsettling) situations and make them funny will appeal to fans of the comic strips Cathy, Pearls Before Swine, and The Far Side.-Ryan Claringbole, Wisconsin Dept. of Pub.
