The TOON Treasury of Classic Children's Comics Reviews
I took a chance on this book because I enjoyed the better children's comic book stories from the 1940s and 1950s that I had seen over the years. I also trusted the editor Art Spiegelman to edit a quality book.
I bought this to read and enjoy with my children,though I do find some of it's content at little mature for young children.
An extremely varied and entertaining work, this includes some of the best of classic series such as Little Lulu and Donald Duck, plus a good many works with which I was not already familiar. I bought this book as I had been continually checking it out of the library to use when tutoring Kindergartners and First Graders in reading. I like the stories, and they love them.
I have bought a copy for a kid's friend for his 6th birthday and he loves it. He spent a lot of time flipping through the pages looking at pictures, and now that he can read quickly and all by himself, he loves it even more. The quality was better than I expected, though being a long time graphic novel reader, I can see how the print quality could improve. However, the kid can't tell the difference (yet) and is very happy with the product. For that alone, it's worth a 5 star rating.
Simply loved it !! Fantastic art and stories for all ages !! Highly recommended !!
This oversized book reprints children's comic books from the 1940s and 1950s. Of course, nearly all comic books of the time period were aimed at children, but in this case it means comic books that are appropriate for the very youngest children. Almost all of the comics here could be classified as "humor" comics. There are many classic stories featuring well known characters like Donald Duck, Little Lulu and Dennis the Menace. But the real find is great stories featuring obscure characters like Intellectual Amos, Nutsy Squirrel, Supermouse and Burp the Twerp. This book puts the "treasure" in "treasury".
Grandkids fascinated with this book.
This is an awesome collecton of some of the nicest comics that one would have read and relished as a little kid.
