This is the third installment in the Sarah’s Scribbles series of graphic novels and, like the first two, it is another hilarious and adorable book. She always creates such charming and relatable comics that are bound to make you laugh, especially if you see yourself in her work. Andersen’s endearing art and witty text combine to tell a story of the daily struggle to “adult” from the point of view of an introvert. And, as I definitely fall into this category, you can understand just how much I relate to her experiences. These are always short, fast reads that unfailingly lift my spirits and put me in a better mood. Andersen makes us look at ourselves and our various quirks by opening up about her life and who she is. Never once have I had trouble connecting the topics she focuses on to my personal life experiences and behavior. Apart from the hilarity of it all, it does serve another purpose in my opinion. While everything about this book is pretty light and fluffy, it still reminds you that you are not alone in this world—you are not alone in the way you feel. And it teaches the most important lesson of all—the best way to deal with the difficult things in our lives, and really any aspect in general, is to combat them with a great sense of humor.

I found her book, " One Big Happy Lump" less than a year ago, and since then, I have found her work inspiring and funny. What she wrote toward the end of her book is very touching, and I encourage everyone to read it. This book was just Great!

This is the first work I’ve come across by Sarah but Internet has some of her scribbles widely appreciated so the name isn’t new to me. I really liked this! I think comics that cover unrelated topics that are deep-down somehow related can be done by someone who knows exactly what they’re doing. And that’s the vibe I get from these scribbles. The comics are ranging from silliest thing that can make us happy--like sliding the scissors through a silky cloth or continuously flipping pages of a book late at night, saying “this is going to be the last one”--to relatable life struggles--like meeting deadlines or picking up small tasks over large, important ones--and these different topics makes this collection wide. In addition to this, there’s a collection of thoughts toward the end of the book where Sarah acknowledges the dark world of Internet and how difficult it can be for an artist to take up some courage and just post about their passions. It can work like aninspiation to some upcoming artists or it can open up some wounds of those who have suffered same but knowing there are others like you can help immensely; whatever be the case, you definitely take away something good from this book. So, basically, pick this up because you’ll certainly find quite a lot you can relate to. I received a digital copy of this via Netgalley but that, in no way influences my rating and/or opinions about it. Thank you Sarah Anderson and Andrews McMeel Publishing!

The essence of what makes Sarah's Scribbles, both in web comic and book form, so wonderful is how Andersen is capable of distilling such human moments into 6 cells or fewer. I find almost every comic extraordinarily relatable. Unlike the previous two books, this collection of comics didn't have as strong a connecting theme. I like the concept of a connecting theme. It keeps the laughs rolling and the reader engaged. With the seemingly abrupt transitions occasionally returning to a previously explored theme, I found myself less engaged overall. The previous books I read without pausing; Herding Cats I put down once or twice on my journey towards completion. While many people read the Sarah's Scribbles series for the comics, my favorite part of these books is always the closing essay. Andersen's Letter to Young Artists reflects upon her experiences over the last years coming into fame over the internet. There are a lot of scary and dangerous pitfalls which are not always considered on the road to internet fame. This exploration of the toxicity of the internet, particularly for content creators and public figures, is timely and important. Yet, in most of the reviews I've read, readers have disliked this section of Herding Cats. Anderson's unique style of the longer form combines both comic cells and essay in a gripping fashion. She covers a challenging topic with a light-hearted twist making the topic easier to relate to and appreciate. I love her longer forms. I hope to see more of these in future collections. Thank you to Andrew McMeel Publishing, NetGalley, and Sarah Andersen for providing me a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

As the third book in the "Sarah's Scribbles Book Series", HERDING CATS is as entertaining as the previous two have been, though they are definitely all stand alone books. Sarah Anderson manages to capture the world of the introverted and anxiety ridden perfectly in her comics, which is part of what I love about her work. What I liked most about this book, though, was that at the end, Anderson offers advice to others who are trying to start in her field. Much of the feedback is reminding yourself not to have too much doubt in yourself, and I liked that.

I adore Sarah's Scribbles! Funny enough, they remind me of my own life and anxieties. I first discovered Sarah's Scribbles online, and I couldn't help but think, "this is exactly how I react... to everything." It was eerily scary how I was able to relate to nearly every comic I came across of Sarah's. Now, Sarah's Scribbles is back with a third book, Herding Cats. This is the book that I needed that I never thought that I needed in my life. Herding Cats is full of laugh-out-loud fun in short comic strips. It is the mouthpiece for a generation of introverted millennials and their every day problems.

I learned about this talented comic writer from my daughter. The cat cartoons have been especially enjoyed in our household but there is more. Sara Anderson humorously and effectively shows us our anxieties and issues. Try this book. Being able to laugh breaks the hard things down into manageable bites. It will help you to process and digest your experiences!

I received a copy of this book to read from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Herding Cats is a collection of cartoons that make me laugh and make me wonder how did she get inside my head? I think her cartoons are important because as well as being entertaining they make you think and they also tell you that you are not the only one who feels that way. Sarah Anderson’s ability to distill big ideas into four little squares and still make you laugh about it leaves me awestruck. I highly recommend this book.
