Sometimes you just want to be a lump

Big Mushy Happy Lump is the second Sarah's Scribbles collection, compiled from the online comic Sarah's Scribbles, by Sarah Anderson. Sarah's comics are about her daily life, mainly to do with awkwardness, being an introvert, loving books, surviving menstruation and, in this volume, learning to love cats.

Some comics are contained in just the one page, but now and then there is a story that goes on for several pages, such as Sarah's journey from puzzlement at the internet's obssession with cats to falling in love with her mother's kitten, and her explanation of why she became an unrepentant sweater thief. Some of the comics are quite feminist, especially those about body image and the annoying way women's clothing is often less comfortable than men's. This one was my favourite.

From Big Mushy Happy Lump by Sarah Anderson, A Sarah's Scribbles Collection.

Big Mushy Happy Lump is a sweet, funny book for introverts and over-thinkers and the people who love them. It's would be a perfect read for a day spent curled up with a hot water bottle for bad cramps, or the end of a day when you just didn't want to get out of bed but had to anyway.
