Staff Reviews

Expect the unexpected in this witty cartoon collection, which turns familiar predictable situations involving farmers, knights, clowns, and others into brain-teasing surprises. Detailed illustrations (7-10).


— From Humor


A pizza, a moon, and a balloon will never look the same! For twenty-five years, John O'Brien has contributed quirky and one-of-a-kind cartoons to the pages of the New Yorker. Now readers are invited into O'Brien's lopsided universe with a hilarious collection of cartoons created especially for this volume. A farmer, a knight, a clown, and other off-the- wall characters find themselves in an absurd world where the moon is a Frisbee and a hungry pizza may gobble them up. Visual gags will tickle readers' funny bones and tease their brains, sometimes all at once. Humor fans can expect the unexpected in this wildly entertaining cartoon collection from a brilliant comic mind.
