Overview

The New Yorker Book of Teacher Cartoons is a hilarious compilation of cartoons that capture the joy, terror, excitement, anxiety, fun, and bedlam that teachers experience every day, as seen through the eyes of some of The New Yorker's best-loved cartoonists.

Featuring more than a hundred contributions that span the magazine's eighty-seven-year history, this cartoon omnibus takes us inside the classroom, and pokes fun at everything from demanding students to their even more demanding parents.

Compiled by Robert Mankoff, the cartoon editor of The New Yorker, and featuring an introduction by the cartoonist Lee Lorenz, this incisive and very funny collection is a testament to the invaluable work of educators everywhere.

This wonderful collection of the best and funniest cartoons published over the last eighty years in The New Yorker takes a wry look into the classroom--at the students, at their blindly devoted but demanding parents, and especially, at the teachers who negotiate the delicate balance between those forces every day.

With 118 cartoons, this is a perfect gift for teachers and a treasure of laughs for all!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Best year-end gift for a teacher."
-Los Angeles Times, 4/27/06

"The New Yorker has captured the essence of being a teacher in a new collection of cartoons published over the last 80 years.... the often laugh-out-loud work is available... just in time for teacher gift-giving time."
-The Hartford Courant, 6/19/06

"The publisher has released it in time for end-of-school teacher gift-giving, but you may be tempted to keep The New Yorker Book of Teacher Cartoons all to yourself."
- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 6/6/06

"To help your child's teacher make the transition, or maybe for a great gift for the teachers' lounge, deliver a gift copy of The New Yorker Book of Teacher Cartoons. Picture a couple of dogs standing at food bowls filled with papers. Says one: "Oh, no, not homework again." You get the idea, and you'll get a lot of smiles."
- Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 8/30/06

    Not a sample

    This is not a sample at all! Wanted to view before purchase but shows only the cover cartoon & nothing inside the book!

    The New Yorker Book of Cartoons

    Loved this book. I gave it to my teacher daughter who found it hilarious and supportive in its own way.

One of my favorites: a classroom full of cats where one cat is explaining to his cat teacher that ¿The dog ate my homework¿. Priceless!
