Praise for Bully!
Bully! is a picture album like no other: a treasure trove of political cartoons celebrating our national love affair with Theodore Roosevelt—a gigantic figure from the past, beloved and admired by the American people, then and now.”
—Daniel Ruddy, author of Theodore Roosevelt’s History of the United States
Theodore Roosevelt was the darling of the caricaturists and cartoonists of the golden age of that art form, as this book so well illustrates. These artists’ descendants today long for another Theodore Roosevelt—and they aren’t the only ones.”
—Tweed Roosevelt, President of the Theodore Roosevelt Association, and great grandson of Theodore Roosevelt
If anyone needs proof that cartoons provide the most fun food for thought for the American political system—open up Rick Marschall’s Bully! and start feasting. Great cartoons, forgotten masters of cartooning, brilliant discussion of issues, and a colorful American hero. Bully, indeed.”
—Bob Mankoff, Cartoon Editor, The New Yorker
