This is well worth buying. I have been buying Larson's books for decades. I'm fourty now and still love his humor. This book has been read by my 10-year-old daughter, 8-year-old newphew, 66-year-old father, and my 85-year-old grandma. We all laughed out loud at some point. I highly recommend this book and all of his other "Far Side" books.
I bought this book for my son who absolutely loved it. He is in middle school and is finally getting old enough to understand the humor. The book was a great find.
this book rocks!! it makes fun of famous art plus the normal far side funniness.
