The long-lost comic strip masterpiece by Crockett Johnson, legendary children’s book author (Harold and the Purple Crayon, The Carrot Seed), collected in full and designed by graphic novelist and Barnaby superfan Daniel Clowes (Ghost World, Wilson). Vol. 2 collects the years 1944-1945 of 5-year-old Barnaby Baxter and his Fairy Godfather J.J. O’Malley’s misadventures. The cigar-chomping, bumbling con-artist and fast-talker O’Malley takes Barnaby on a trip to D.C. to serve his term in Congress. Also, Gus the Ghost and O’Malley follow the Baxters to their seaside cottage, enlisting Barnaby to join them on a treasure hunt. Plus Wall St., Ermine hunters, soap salesmen and more! Adored by all ages, Barnaby’s deft balance of fantasy, timeless humor and elegant cartooning will delight even the most sophisticated reader (Chris Ware (Building Stories) loves it), much as it did in its original run, attracting fans as diverse as Dorothy Parker, Charles Schulz, W.C. Fields, Gardner Rea, Milton Caniff, Rockwell Kent and Louis Untermeyer.

About the Author:

Crockett Johnson was the pen name of cartoonist and children’s book illustrator David Johnson Leisk (October 20,1906–July 11, 1975). He is best known for the Harold series of books, which began with Harold and the Purple Crayon, and for the comic strip Barnaby. He was married to the children’s book author Ruth Krauss, with whom he collaborated on several books, including The Carrot Seed.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4 Up—Barnaby Baxter haplessly follows in the wake of his protean fairy godfather, the rotund, verbose J.J. O'Malley, as he tries to get Congress to back the building of a dam, accidentally exposes insurance fraud, and causes a huge stock market crash by trying to buy a pair of morning trousers. Throughout it all, Barnaby's parents shush and cajole him to try and forget about his "imaginary friend" Mr. O'Malley, and seem to just miss meeting him again and again. Adults —Barnaby's family excepted— are persistently depicted as craven opportunists and the mystical folk that populate the book are single-minded naïfs, with only Barnaby's friend Jane shown to be flatly, hilariously sensible, and critical of everything that goes on. This second volume reprints two years of the comic strip, and once again bookends the content with essays and a thorough compilation of its many allusions to provide context for the strip's importance, popularity, and scope. Included reproductions of the cover art of contemporary collections state that the comic was and is for adults, and the elevated vocabulary and historical and social references would back that up, but the book should slyly, winkingly appeal to almost all ages.—Benjamin Russell, Belmont High School, NH
