This is a great comic strip
Any comic who centers his work on the lives of children will face the inevitable comparisons to Charles Schultz. I believe that these children would fit in nicely with the Peanuts gang. Mr Mallett carrys on in the fine tradition of Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbs (to whom many comparisons have been made), and Cul-de-Sac (if you do not know then look it up!). This is a great comic and I make sure I find it every day in the Washington Post.
