The hound that's almost human!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fred Basset Yearbook 2013 (Paperback)
The title of this review is a phrase often used in the earlier Fred annuals, although being almost human could be looked on as an insult! Great fun on every page as Fred casts his wistful eye on his life, whether it's chasing off the birds, 'The little perishers', playing with the Tucker twins or escaping his masters piano playing, Fred's character hasn't changed since book 1 even if the drawing of him has. Thank goodness Michael Martin took up the pen from Alex Graham to continue this long running strip. I'm lucky enough to have collected all the annuals but still look forward to the next. Thank goodness the drawings are in black and white, there was a period when some annuals had colour mixed in but for me it didn't work.Well done Fred, here's to the next fifty!
