Product Description

Review

"'The master English cartoonist ... a laugh a page' Publishers' Weekly"

About the Author

Norman Thelwell (1923-2004) sold his first drawing to Punch in 1950, and two years later became an important regular contributor. His books include "Angels on Horseback ", "Wrestling with a Pencil", "A Leg at Each Corner", "Top Dog", "Magnificat", "The Cat's Pyjamas", "Pony Panorama" and "Pony Cavalcade". Thelwell was born in Birkenhead. War service involved foot-slogging with the East Yorkshires and art editing an army magazine in India. He studied art at Liverpool, taught it for seven years in Wolverhampton then became a full-time cartoonist and a household name soon afterwards. For many years he lived with his wife and children in a Hampshire cottage within fly-casting distance of the River Test.

We still have our old Thelwell books round the place but i jumped at the chance to have a dog one as well. In this copy, the drawings are badly reproduced. A lot of Thelwell's lovely line is besmirched by thick, furry print. It is not a good enough reproduction, especially when compared to our older books. I know the drawings are getting old but this is just crappy. The cartoons themselves are as clever as ever!

This was a present for someone else so it was packaged up and sent on straight away. I do have an old copy of this and thought it would be good for a friend and their dog!
