cartoons on a chalkboard

Just finished The Long Chalkboard. A sweet and thoughtful little book that came to me thanks to the public library. It's not for you if you love things like Annihilation and Ultimates-- but the page by page black and white illustrations coupled with witty text makes this a gem. There are three stories that highlight life's joys, anxiety, and interactions, while talking about art, children's authors, and chili.

In their humor, simplicity, and subtlety, these stories--brought to life perfectly through Feiffer's drawings--speak to our deepest adult-yet-childlike selves. There's not a grown-up among us who won't be completely charmed.
