We discovered cartoons in the daily and Sunday newspapers as a child learning how to read.  Today’s generation of youngsters may not be all that familiar with actual newspaper strips but thanks to the wonderful world of the internet, there are hundreds of new cartoons to be found on-line. This little square book, the second in a series, brings together some of the finest cartoon creators working today.  The theme is lunch room adventures and the style and humor is a broad and eclectic as any ink stroke.

All the stories in this collection are both fun and educational. From Cece Bell’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Lunch” to Nathan Hale’s historical “Lunch Bomb 1943,” there is something for everyone; including a brand new Snoopy adventure called “Lunchtime Beagle.”  The imagination in each tale is tremendous and these are the kinds of strips parents will want to read along with their children.

All in all, “Comics Squad – Lunch” is a cartoon treasure for all the little readers in your family and a truly marvelous introduction to some of today’s most creative comic strips.
We can’t wait to see what the Comics Squad comes up with next.
