HASH(0x9ec08b34) out of 5 stars A book of cartoons and poetry both whimsical and meaningful. 17 Jan. 2000
By Paul Martin - Published on
Format: Paperback
Laughter is medicine for the soul, and this collection of cartoons will not only make you laugh, but touch you deeply as well.
Michael Leunig is highly gifted: he's not just an artist or cartoonist, but also a clever poet and uniquely insightful social commentator. He is able to communicate profound critique of social and other issues in a way that I have seen no other cartoonist do. Even the slime of political issues takes on a sublime perspective through the uncanny vision of Leunig. I can only guess from my appreciation of his work, that he has immense life experience in the realms of human relationships, introspection, spirituality and more. He has been reported as stating that through his work, he attempts to give voice to the voiceless.
Leunig also does many cartoons that are pure whimsy, and there are recurring characters in many of his works. Mr. Curly and ducks appear to be among his favourites. His cartoons appear regularly in the Melbourne Age newspaper. There is a regular following of his work, and sometimes, there is lively dialogue in the Letters to the Editor praising or arguing for and against his work.
The Travelling Leunig was first given to me as a gift around 1992, and so impressed me that I have bought several more of his books. I have found them to be immensely enjoyable, amazingly insightful, and thoroughly touching. I am by no means exaggerating here, and Michael Leunig is right up there with the short list of people I would like to sit down with over a cup of coffee and biscuits.

By Rosie2U - Published on
Format: Paperback
I first discovered Leunig vis a set of postage stamps, a booklet and stickers of his that I got in an Australian post office.

The pictures in the booklet populated many picture frames. And I have gone on the acquire a number of his wonderful books.

Thank you Michael Leunig.

Ps: Just love that duck, and teapots have never been the same to me since.
