He compiles super-succinct summaries of literary classics in the light-hearted, humorous style that his blog readers have grown to love.--Wordpress
John Atkinson, is giving all book lovers a chuckle with his condensed literary classic cartoons, which include abbreviations of famous works of literature.--Buzzfeed
