I think it’s been nearly forty years since I first read this book … back in fourth grade it was. I happened to be doing a search on Amazon and up pops this old memory. It’s quaint and fun – though not laugh-out-loud funny anymore.
Arnold Roth is a fantastic cartoonist, right up their with Jules Fieffer – though with a radically different style and approach. There’s a level of detail and absurdity to his work that’s still refreshing today. I wouldn’t recommend this particular book to everyone – it’s a tad dated in spots – but it’s a fun read and would be a fairly good kids-level book for anyone interested in cartoonistry.
