Happy Birthday, Garfield!

by: 
Tisha, Evergreen Library

Whose birthday is today?

Here are some clues:

 - He hates Mondays and loves lasagna
 - He loves coffee and hates raisins
 - He hates to diet and loves to sleep
 - He's orange and furry and was portrayed by a balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade for the first time in 1984
 - His 54th book came out in September, 2012

The answer, of course, is Garfield, who was 'born' on June 19, 1978.
