Editorial Reviews

Review

“An interesting journey providing snapshots in history from times when U.S. involvement in the war was no foregone conclusion and later moments when victory was no guarantee.”
Comics Alliance

“And now, rescued from the newsprint where they moldered unseen for over half a century, we can turn to the cartoons that let us know what happened when Horton hears a heil.”
—Art Spiegelman, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Maus

“Scathing, fascinating stuff… A provocative history of wartime politics.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Fascinating.”
The New York Book Review

“Vigorous, trenchant, and vividly remarkable.”
The Christian Science Monitor

From the Publisher

The fascinating sequel to the bestselling Dr. Seuss Goes To War, with over one hundred never-before-published Seuss cartoons and including the work of Saul Steinberg, Al Hirschfeld, and others --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

At 71 I have memories of WWII. Even with those memories, the cartoons are lacking some background. Sometimes identifiers should be added. I don't recognize all of the carictures. Certain persons were mostly forgotten in post WWII histories so why they are lampooned is unknown by myself. I suspect that the selection is representive of the period but 60+ years later ....

I purchased this for my nephew who is a history fanatic. He was starting the semester with two history classes and I thought this might make a great gift. He had been looking for grandma's copy of Seuss Goes To War, and in the offside chance that he found it, I didn't want redundancy. It is a follow up of sorts and has the POV of several cartoonists of the time. He kept chuckling whilst he read. I will admit that a good many of the cartoons went over my head but he loved them. It arrived quicker than anticipated.

This is a little known side 0f the Seuss and it is worth the buy and the read if you can get a copy. I was very pleased with the used condition of my purchase and fancy I will appreciate it and share it for years to come.

After Dr. Seuss became labled as a children's author, his older readers forgot his satiric appeal and ability to focus on the point. The commentaries about the cartoon process and the history of World War II help history students and those curious about editorial cartoons to connect with propaganda and its effects.
