Description

At last - the greatest kid's comics stories of the past can be treasured by kids today!

Some of the twentieth century's finest children's literature first appeared in the lowly ten-cent comic books published between the 1930s and 1960s.

This Treasury gathers together over 60 gems that can stand the test of time and take their honored place next to the more traditional classics on every well-read child's bookshelf. Kids of all ages-even adults-will delight in characters ranging from John Stanley's Little Lulu and Tubby to Sheldon Mayer's Sugar and Spike; from Carl Banks's Uncle Scrooge to Walt Kelly's Pogo; from Supermouse to Captain Marvel to the Pie-Face Prince of Old Pretzelberg, and more.

All one needs is a sense of humor and a sense of wonder!
