Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mike is the Peter Pan of the cartooning world; he's boyishly charming, good with a rapier, and he doesn't spend a lot to time on the ground. Also, he doesn't seem to want to grow up." --Gary Trudeau, creator of the comic strip Doonesbury
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have several books of this series and glad that I have them. They are a pleasure to sit and read them, and laugh, then share them with all children and adults. I highly recommend this book for one reason: FUN!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
These cartoons from the strip Mother Goose & Grimm are flat out funny. Most involve the dog Grimm but some include other characters. One of my favorites was a statement by Mother Goose that she has finally trained Grimm to change the water in his dish. Another character asks, "How could you ever train a dog to do that?" The next caption has a large "Flush" emanating from the background. Another has the copilot of a plane telling the pilot, "Yea I felt a thump too." The nose of the plane has a design of Mary Poppins on it.

In the "Fish Nightmares" cartoon we see a fish with a dream cloud of Mrs. Paul, which is the name of the Seafood Company. One joke after another comes at you so that you engage in speedy page turning until you finish the book.
