"The comic genius, the author of the blackly buoyant and sorely missed "Far Side" comic strip ... Mr. Larson is among us again, not as a syndicated cartoonist, but as a contemporary fabulist." -- "New York Times""" There's a Hair in My Dirt!" is hysterical . . . more entertaining than any science class I remember and the foreword by biologist Edward O. Wilson proves it's legit."-- "Washington Post"
About the Author
Gary Larrson creator of the phenomenally successful cartoon, The Far Side®, grew up in Tacoma, Washington. As a kid he liked to draw but never formally studied art or considered being a cartoonist. His real love was biology, which ultimately became a frequent topic in his cartoon panel.
Larson has the distinction of having the scientific community name a biting louse and a butterfly after him. He lives in Seattle, Washington--above ground.

Not a book for young children because you may end up trying to explain some of Larson's weirdness.
Despite the appearance, this is not a children's book. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone under 10, and even then it depends on the kid. There's some language that'll go over the head of many kids. Also, there's a lot of death, both animal and human. (While I thought the bear bringing tartar sauce to where his compatriots had felled a fisherman was funny, some kids might be upset. Heck, some kids might be upset by the remains of the picnicking bugs that the dragonflies ate.)
This is a relatively short book, but it's worth taking time to thoroughly look at each picture. Many of them contain a lot of visual gags that are easy to miss if you whip through too quickly. An adult can still do a thorough perusal of the book in under an hour, but it'll be a mightily entertaining hour.
Its a good lesson in ecology and care of the environment.
Well done, sir.
