    1. God what an awesome collection! It's funny to see what gets Al Jaffee's goat over the years. Roller skates in the 60s, Jamie Lynn Spears in the 00s, but then some of them are downright BLEAK and COLD too! I love these illustrations so much!

    2. A true masterpiece. It's one of those beautiful books that you can read and expect to laugh out loud and if someone else is sitting in the room with you they'll notice and be all like: "what are you laughing at?" and you'll be all like: "it's the book." and they'll be all like: "oh." I don't know where Jaffee comes up with this stuff.

    3. I enjoyed every hour, minute, and second with this collection! A wonderful slice of Americanaree cheers for all of the humor Al Jaffee has given us over the years with his fold-ins!
