For Better or For Worse appears in more than 2,000 newspapers worldwide in 20 countries and eight languages. Loyal fans turn to Lynn Johnston's creation daily to enjoy her stories and artwork that bring the Patterson family to life. It's no wonder that readership polls frequently rate the strip as number-one overall favorite.

For 25 years, award-winning cartoonist Lynn Johnston has attracted new readers and intrigued longtime fans with her uniquely humorous stories and drawings in For Better or For Worse . During that time, more than 30 books based on the daily comic strip have sold in excess of 1.6 million copies. Striking a Chord continues that impressive record, delivering the latest For Better or For Worse collection just in time for spring.

Johnston's acclaimed strip centers on the everyday life of a Canadian family, humorously portraying both the good and the not-so-good events that are shared by the Patterson clan and their extended family of friends and neighbors. Parents Elly and John; children Michael and his wife, Deanna, Elizabeth, and April; Grandpa Jim; and dogs Edgar and Dixie all live out the joys and complexities of modern life. From parents apprehensively facing their fifties and a young couple tackling new parenthood to a young woman confronting career choices and a girl's loss of a beloved pet, Striking a Chord brings compassion, understanding, and a lighthearted touch to every human interaction.

This collection includes cartoons from November 2002 through July 2003.
