Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cartoonists are passionate about Richard Thompson’s work, and Cul de Sac is the only cartoon to be endorsed by Bill Watterson.

Cul de Sac chronicles the absurdly wonderful adventures of the Otterloop family. Alice, Petey, Mom, and Dad live in the cookie-cutter suburbs not far from the interstate. Here, and at school, their day-to-day life unfolds with simple joys, tiny infractions, and wonderful moments of gentle bliss.

In this specially curated for kids collection, the quirky world of Cul de Sac comes to life for a new audience.

"One of the five best features in any newspaper, period." - The Comics Reporter

"…(Thompson) produces one of the few strips around where nearly every individual panel is standalone delight." - The Onion A.V. Club

"I can't say enough in his favor, so much is my admiration for his work." - Pat Oliphant

"...much-needed jolt of energy to the daily newspaper. We have a real talent here." - Bill Watterson (creator of Calvin and Hobbes)

About the Author

 Richard Thompson is the creator of Cul de Sac and winner of the 2011 Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year. His illustrations have appeared in numerous publications, including U.S. News & World Report, National Geographic, and The New Yorker. He announced in 2009 that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, and has since rallied other cartoonists and illustrators to contribute to the Team Cul de Sac project to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation. In September 2012, Thompson retired from creating Cul de Sac.
