New York Times best-selling author Patrick McDonnell is the creator of the award-winning Mutts comic strip. It has been described by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz as "one of the best comic strips of all time." Mutts is recognized by critics and popular press alike for its distinctive style, heartwarming humor, and strong yet non-preachy stance on important animal and environmental issues.

In addition to winning countless awards for cartooning, Mutts has also been honored for its environmental and animal advocacy with two Genesis Awards from The Ark Trust, The HSUS Hollywood Genesis Award for Ongoing Commitment, the PETA Humanitarian Award and a Sierra Club award.

Mutts is distributed by King Features to more than 700 newspapers, websites and mobile applications in 20 countries. It has been compiled into 24 books in the United States and in numerous collections throughout the world.
