Overview

School Days: Cartoons from the New Yorker by Robert Mankoff, The New Yorker

A collection of 100 cartoons published in The New Yorker on school, teachers, and education—from the most prestigious publisher of cartoon material in American media.

From preschool through the PSAT, and from the playground to the detention hall, this remarkable collection of 100 cartoons from the illustrious archives of The New Yorker celebrates the humor and ironies of our educational system. The cartoons focus on a delightful array of familiar situations and characters, including teachers (from the underappreciated to the overrated), students (from the overachievers to the slackers), and parents (from the demanding to the uninterested).

Such New Yorker greats as Charles Barsotti, William Hamilton, Roz Chast, and many others examine education from every perspective with the insightful wit that is the signature of the magazine's cartoons. School Days will make a great gift for New Yorker fans and is guaranteed to bring a particular smile of recognition to the faces of teachers, students, and parents everywhere.
