Because I like FoxTrot books and this one looked cool.
Its a collection of FoxTrot comics about Jason Fox becoming Eileen Jacobson's partner on a school field trip in exchange for the charizard Pokemon card.
I liked it because it was really, really, really, really funny and its the best FoxTrot book I've read.
Also included in this collection of FoxTrot strips: . Grandma's Thanksgiving visit . The Paige-o-morphosis . Nerds of the Rings ."I Want to Be a Millionaire" . Andy the Grinch . Roger and Peters shopping spree .
