Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sams love of donuts takes him to the Big City where he makes friends with Mr. Bikferd, a world class collector of donuts. But when Mr. Bikferd falls in love with Pretzel Annie, the prophecy of an old homeless woman comes true: “Who needs donuts when youve got love?” Mr. Bikferd bequeaths his donut collection to Sam, who uses it to save the old homeless woman from drowning in a basement flooded with coffee.

This is a reissue of Mark Alan Stamatys masterpiece of the absurd, first published 30 years ago and out of print nearly as long. With an illustration style that mixes a benign Hieronymus Bosch with an urban Wheres Waldo?, Stamatys off-the-wall humor is on target for little kids and big kids today.

Synopsis:

First published 30 years ago, and out of print for almost that long, this masterpiece of the absurd by the noted "The New York Times Book Review" political cartoonist is reissued. Illustrations.

About the Author

Mark Alan Stamatys political cartoons and comic strips have appeared in Time, The Village Voice, and The Washington Post. He is a cartoonist for The New York Times Book Review and the online magazine Slats.

Paula Scott, January 27, 2008 (view all comments by Paula Scott)
This book is unique and wonderful. Our whole family--parents and children alike--has enjoyed it for its quirky sense of humor, great drawings, and pages filled with thousands of imaginative and fun details (new ones to discover each time we read). With all this going on the plot itself is a bit beside the point at times and that may be the book's weakness. Still, highly recommended!
