Reviews

"Scathing, fascinating stuff. . . . A provocative history of wartime politics. Grade: A."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Vigorous, trenchant, and vividly memorable, Geisel's cartoons, accompanied by Minear's helpful commentary, are a salutary reminder of an era in which patriotism and liberalism went hand in hand."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"Great cartooning. . . . Minear's text gives solid context to the drawings resurrected in this collection."
--Atlantic Monthly

"Succeeds as both a dark-humored history lesson and a glimpse into the artistic development that would carry into Seuss's best known books."
--Mother Jones
