In Enter the Baby by Brian Anderson, the fourth book in the ‘Dog Eat Doug’ series, we find Sophie, the playful and mischievous Labrador and her partner in crime, Doug, a cute, but hard to handle baby, up to more adventures as they take advantage of their cuteness, and try to one-up each other in garnering the attentions of mom and dad.
Think Calvin and Hobbes, with a bit of a macabre twist—like ants breaking out of the ant farm and encountering a frog just as they get their first taste of freedom, or Sophie and Doug’s first trip to the farm.
These cartoons will make you laugh, but they will also make you laugh some more. If you like cartoons, get this book. If you don’t like cartoons . . . what’s wrong with you?
I give it five stars.
Crime is no laughing matter. But, after reading Police Humor by Oliver Gaspirtz, you’ll be forced to admit that some criminals are. And so, for that matter, are some police, judges, courts, and legislatures when it comes to crime and criminality.
In this rib-tickling tribute to the men and women of law enforcement who risk their lives on a daily basis, often for a public that doesn’t appreciate them, Gaspirtz combines cartoons, jokes, and true news reports in a collection that exemplifies the George Bernard Shaw quote, “Life does not cease to be funny when someone dies, any more than it ceases to be serious when someone laughs.
I can guarantee that you’ll find yourself laughing on every page of this book. It has a few typos, so it doesn’t get a perfect five. But, hey, it’s a solid four stars!
