One Big Happy (12/5/09)

My favorite part of this strip is the expression on the young girl’s face as she reads “A Winter Story.” She seems genuinely distraught by the weak prose found in her workbook. And to be fair, there’s nothing particularly imaginative about this account of winter activities . Snowmen? Ice skating? These are trivialities, not anything that’s worth committing to paper. Fortunately, the girl resolves by the final panel to register her forceful objection to this beige depiction of an already desolate season.
