I tend to be a little cynical about collections, whether they be of short stories, essays, music, or, as in this title, comics. If you have 10 contributions in a collection, it seems that one is going to be groundbreaking and brilliant, one will be lousy, one will be too obscure and full of itself, and the rest will be interesting and entertaining enough, but viewed collectively, don't do much to forward your appreciation or understanding of the unifying theme the collection is built around. The cartoons and comics in this collection are charming and well-designed, but I'm afraid the volume did not disprove the ratio. Standouts for me were 'Pat-a-Cake' and 'The Queen of Tarts'.
