Review

"Best year-end gift for a teacher."
 -Los Angeles Times, 4/27/06

"The New Yorker has captured the essence of being a teacher in a new collection of cartoons published over the last 80 years.... the often laugh-out-loud work is available... just in time for teacher gift-giving time."
 -The Hartford Courant, 6/19/06

"The publisher has released it in time for end-of-school teacher gift-giving, but you may be tempted to keep The New Yorker Book of Teacher Cartoons all to yourself."
  - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 6/6/06

"To help your child's teacher make the transition, or maybe for a great gift for the teachers' lounge, deliver a gift copy of The New Yorker Book of Teacher Cartoons. Picture a couple of dogs standing at food bowls filled with papers. Says one: "Oh, no, not homework again." You get the idea, and you'll get a lot of smiles."
  - Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 8/30/06

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the titles in a series of anthologies of subject-specific cartoons which first appeared in The New Yorker, a magazine to which I have subscribed since I was enrolled in college. Once again, Robert Mankoff serves as editor and once again, he has made excellent choices. Mankoff is the founder and president of The Cartoon Bank and cartoon editor of The New Yorker. His own cartoons have been published in that magazine since 1974.

At the outset, I acknowledge the difficulty of discussing cartoons without benefit of having them displayed...and this is especially true of New Yorker cartoons. Those who create the best of them have a unique talent for combining precisely the correct illustration and caption. Styles vary from one artist to the next, of course, but so many New Yorker cartoons suggest an urban lifestyle perspective with an emphasis on wit and whimsy. That is even true of so-called "sick humor" as found in Charles Addams' cartoons, for example. FYI, Addams is not among the artists represented in this volume.

Some cartoons require no caption such as one drawn by Lee Stevens which features a building behind a prominent lawn sign whose message serves as a caption: "The Knowledge Hut® formerly P.S. 102." Other cartoons have an extensive caption such as one devised by George Booth in which a wife is commenting on their daughter's schoolwork. "Sarah's grades are excellent. She got an A+ in `Yogi Berra: Philosopher or Fall Guy?,' A in `Dollars and Scents: An Analysis of Post-Vietnam Perfume Advertising,' A- in `The Final Four as Last Judgment: The N.C.A.A. Tournament from a Religious Perspective,' and A in `The American Garage Sale: Its Origins, Cultural Implications, and Future.'" The husband is understandably dismayed.

Format: Hardcover
I received this wonderful book as a gift when I graduated with my master in teaching. It contains plenty of treasures, but I wanted to caution gift givers that the cartoons here are very heavy on the elementary school commentary. As a high school teacher, I didn't find a ton that were really applicable to my daily experiences. Still though, I've enjoyed flipping through it and chuckling at the lil'uns.

My Husband is a High School Teacher. I bought this for him to contribute to the teachers gift exchange during their Christmas Party. It was a real hit. The book is rather short but it is what you would expect. I couldn't resist going through the whole book as soon as it arrived. I enjoyed every minute of it. It was a great purchase and I would definitely purchase again.

I gave this book to my kids' teachers as well as to several family members. I have never had such enthusiastic thank you's from not just one, but 4 teachers! The book is clever and thoughtful and appreciated by the profession.

I read the customer reviews before I bought this and had read a few saying that they've seen better. So I bought one of these and then two of the chicken noodle soup for the teacher's soul and its a collection of comics. This book was soooo much better than that one. This has preschool humor, teacher humor, student humor, in addition to just the silly things kids say and do. Its a riot and I wish I had bought three of these.

My kids and I gave a copy of this wonderful and funny book to each of their elementary school teachers when they "graduated" from the 6th grade.

Bought this a gift for my teacher girlfriend and she loved it. It is very funny, although as the NewYorker does some of the cartoons are hard to understand, or appeal to a different type of humor. But all in all, great price, thoughtful gift idea for teachers in your life.
