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

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

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

After yet another hectic day in the classroom, what teacher doesn¿t deserve a good belly laugh? Well here are 118 classic cartoons that will have you rolling in the aisles! 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!
