The Gift of Nothing



The Gift of Nothing by Patrick McDonnell features his Mutts comic strip characters, Mooch the cat and his canine friend Earl. This story addresses the dilemma of getting a gift for your friend, specifically "what do you get someone who has everything?" The picture of the two friends sitting paw-in-paw, combined with McDonnell's clever wordplay, reminds readers (of all ages) that the greatest gifts are not "things" and the true meaning of gift-giving. Perfect read during the holiday season to keep it all in perspective! -Aurora

  1. I gave this to a dear friend of mine for her birthday this year. It's the perfect thing to give the person who has everything!
