(Gross was one of the most popular cartoonists and humorists of his day. This old book is funny stuff from a time when dialect humor was funnier than it is now! Orig. pub'd by Grosset & Dunlap, 1926.)

A collection of newspaper colmns written in the early 20th century that often seem to make no sense at all until read aloud. Teeming with insights of everyday life under almost poverty conditions, these stories have a natural rhythm that pullyou along as you read aloud....GREAT GREAT FUNNY BOOK THAT HAD ME WITH TEARS IN MY EYES WHEN i THOUGHT OF IT LATER.

This book is a treasure. You have to be able to read this book with an understanding of the times in which it was written. The author was a cartoonist in the 1930s, "Nize Baby" is a compilation of his work from that time. My mother used to read this book to us kids. What made it interesting to us was that my mother would put the voices and the accents to the caracters. It was an old book even back in the 1950s. I never even dreamed that I would find again. Great memories.

After scouring used-book stores for anything by Milt Gross, I finally found "Nize Baby" online at Amazon. (I forget the search phrase I used--maybe his name, alone.) This is another one of those impulse purchases that is more than worth the price. It adds something important to the library of artists, cartoonists and printmakers I've assembled over the past three decades, is a warm, fuzzy read, and the pen drawings are superb and spontaneous. Gross worked during the 1920's, 30's and '40's, and his line has a scruffy, quirky, jaggedy look that...just feels like that time, to me. Glad I found it.
