Cul de Sac Golden Treasury : A Keepsake Garland of Classics
The Cul de Sac Golden Treasury is a hilarious and beautiful omnibus of cartoonist Richard Thompson's Cul de Sac comic strips, bringing together strips from the first collection, Cul de Sac, and the 2009 collection, Children at Play.
A lighthearted look at the suburban life of precocious preschooler Alice Otterloop, Cul de Sac is noted not only for its humor and intelligence, but also for Thompson's fun, imaginative watercolor artwork. Thompson's work has attracted the praise of highly acclaimed illustrators all over the world, including Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes) and Mo Willems (Sheep in the Big City, Knuffle Bunny).
The Cul de Sac Golden Treasury will be a valued addition to the libraries of Cul de Sac fans and a fantastic introduction for readers new to this warm, wonderful comic strip.

1 . Made Me Laugh in a Long Time
Posted May 08, 2012 by Jennifer , Fond du LacMost newspaper comics don't make me laugh that often nowadays, except for this comic. The humor really stems from how the kids react to their surroundings, their thought-process is like that of an adult but they still retain their child-like awareness. If that makes sense, I think? Either way I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. The artstyle is perfect for the comic, cartoony with stylistic details and personality.
<--------> I purchased the ebook format of the book and I have to say the page layout was really well-done, which for the reason I gave it five stars. Each page features only one comic so you can zoom in and not have to constantly worry about always having to scroll around to find the other comics. Or you can zoom in to a specific ratio and it'll stay tha way as you page through the ebook. Just to warn, sometimes it takes a bit of concentration to read the text depending on how close together the letters and words were drawn, which makes zooming in a good idea.
