Synopsis

The Cul de Sac Golden Treasury is a hilarious and beautiful omnibus of cartoonist Richard Thompson's Cul de Sac comic strips, bringing together strips from the first collection, Cul de Sac, and the 2009 collection, Children at Play.

A lighthearted look at the suburban life of precocious preschooler Alice Otterloop, Cul de Sac is noted not only for its humor and intelligence, but also for Thompson's fun, imaginative watercolor artwork. Thompson's work has attracted the praise of highly acclaimed illustrators all over the world, including Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes) and Mo Willems (Sheep in the Big City, Knuffle Bunny).

The Cul de Sac Golden Treasury will be a valued addition to the libraries of Cul de Sac fans and a fantastic introduction for readers new to this warm, wonderful comic strip.
