Hey look! It's Uncle Scrooge and Uncle Wiggly, Little Archie and Little Lulu, Dennis the Menace and Burp the Twerp. They're all here in this gorgeously produced treasury of Golden Age comics for kids of all ages, including forgotten rarities as well as those classic characters from the 1930s through the early 60s. Master comics creators and editors Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly have gathered more than 60 gems that have stood the test of time, from single-page comics by Walt Kelly and Harvey Kurtzman to a 22-pager by Carl Barks and the original "Gerald McBoing Boing" story by Dr. Seuss and P.D. Eastman.

"I stayed up all night reading this wonderful book and was so enthralled, I didn't hear the burglars who broke into my home. Get your own copy and then you, too, will have no furniture."—Lemony Snicket

"Spiegelman and Mouly reinvented comics as pop art in their classic anthology RAW. This time out, they're reclaiming comics as a medium of far gentler thrills in a bountiful collection of story gems from a more whimsical era of graphic storytelling. Cartoonists little known to nonscholars are standouts: Sheldon Mayer's Sugar and Spike—toddler pals who speak their own language, much to the consternation of grownups—are a delight with their sweet hijinks. Andre LeBlanc's oddball Intellectual Amos marries lush artwork to a bald boy who mysteriously soliloquizes about science to his silent imp companion. Dick Briefer's Frankenstein is a gentle freak who longs to play the tuba. But the genius triumvirate of John Stanley, Carl Barks and Walt Kelly dominates—the first two with their wry fables of greed, revenge and childhood hubris. Kelly is simply one of the most endearing cartoonists of all time—every line he draws or character he creates exudes charm. Adults and comics fans will pore over this revelatory treasury for the stunning art; kids will simply pore over it, immersed in worlds of fantasy that are worth visiting again and again."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
