Overview

New Yorker Cartoonist Leo Cullum returns with a collection featuring a whole menagerie of creatures faced with surprisingly human predicaments. Tequila Mockingbird brings us a passel of chickens and ducks, assorted fowl and fish, cows, monkeys, penguins, snakes, sharks, and others in hilarious cartoons that show just how highly evolved even the lowliest creatures have become.

Whether Cullum portrays a grazing buffalo talking on his cell phone, a bewildered-looking therapist diagnosing his bipolar bear patient, or a chicken and egg in a new take on the which-came-first controversy, the cartoons in this book will have readers laughing out loud at the tidbits of advice from the animal kingdom that even the wisest of humans can benefit from.

Okay, I bought this book for the title. I admit it. Who didn't grow up with the classic book and/or movie "To Kill a Mockingbird" with Gregory Peck? My adult kids still love that book and movie, so I bought this book to catch their eye and bring a smile. The book is simple cartoon style with black and white illustrations and gentle humor. It makes a nice coffee table book at a very affordable price. The illustrations are often enough to get the idea. Not the funniest book ever, but one that people simply have to pick up and check out!
