Synopsis

The Toon Treasury of Classic Children's Comics by Jon Scieszka

For the first time, here comes a collection of the greatest children's comics, compiled by Francoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman, in a format modeled after the bestselling children's book anthology The 20th-Century Children's Book Treasury: Picture Books and Stories to Read Aloud . This impressive anthology of classic children's comics is artfully compiled by two of the best known creators in publishing and the field of comics - Francoise Mouly and Art Spiegelman. In a format modeled after the bestselling children's book anthology The 20th-Century Children's Book Treasury: Picture Books and Stories to Read Aloud , this Toon Book will focus on comic books, not strips, and contain humourous stories that range from one to eight pages, each self-contained. Stories of this book will be culled from the Golden Age of comic books, roughly the 1940s through the early 1960s, and feature the works of such renown artists and writers as Carl Barks, Harvey Kurtzman, Dave Berg, Milt Gross and Basil Wolverton. Stories will organised into five categories (Kids, Funny Animals, Adventure, Fantasy, and Weird and Wacky), and Mouly and Spiegelman will frame each category with an introductory essay, and provide brief biographies of each artist. This title is an essential reading for children and adults alike.
