Product Description

Book Description

From the archives of the Daily and Sunday Express comes this clever and fun new collection of Carl Giles' best cartoons.

About the Author

Carl Giles was born in Islington, north London, on 29 September 1916. After leaving school at fourteen, he initially trained in animation before moving into cartoons, when working for Reynolds News. In 1943 Giles moved to the Sunday Express and Daily Express, eventually replacing Strube and becoming the Daily Express "War Correspondent Cartoonist" with the 2nd Army in 1945. Best known for his Express "family", his cartoons had enormous popular appeal and in 1959 he was awarded an OBE. Giles left the Daily Express in 1989 but continued working for the Sunday Express until 1991. He died in 1995.

I enjoy Giles, but this presentation and choice of cartoons left me very disappointed !
The categorisation of cartoons ruined any chronological flow of circumstances. I found it haphazard and disjointed. And where was Grandma ... A grudging after thought ? I will stick with my paper copies where the posthumous editions made good sense.

Having a mixed collection of Giles annuals, either bought new, second-hand or in facsimile editions since the first output of Giles, they never fail to amuse; although I sometimes feel that that recent issues are not using original artwork.

I have a complete set of Giles annuals from the first one in the 1940s so this was a 'must buy' to maintain the set. The cartoons are a testament to how life goes round in circles - the subjects are as relevant today as they were in the 1950s onward!

I have been an avid collector of Giles Annuals right from number one on. I own them all, so feel compelled to continue buying re-releases. Unfortunately, most are recycled as Carl has been gone for so many years now. Even the Cover Art is recycled. At some point the regurgitation of Giles works have to stop so that he can be remembered for who and what he was, not what the publishers can gain monetarily from the superfluous collections.

I will be putting this same comment for all the Giles annuals - brilliant! I used to read Giles when I was a kid and having these annuals again (my ex-husband checked my original set away) makes me feel like a young girl - better than face cream.
