Preteena by Allison Barrows

I have introduced several of my readers to the fabulous comic strip Zits about a 15-year-old boy and his family and friends. It’s a great strip. Now I’d like to introduce you to a lesser-known comic strip called Preteena (or PreTeena). It’s about a 10-year-old girl and her family and friends. What I like most about it is probably that it’s a funny strip that just happens to have young people as the focus. Recently Teena and her friend Stick have been talking about re-naming Thanksgiving to Givethanksing, because that makes more sense.

Here is today’s strip:

Happy Givethanksing, folks! I’ll be back on Monday.
