What has little pink wings, talks with an Irish brogue and smokes a cigar?
If you are familiar with Crockett Johnson's comic strip Barnaby, you'll know the answer right away: Mr. O'Malley — one of the most delightful creations in comic strip history. If you're not, this book (and Dover's companion volume, Barnaby) will give you a chance to make the acquaintance of Barnaby and his utterly fantastic fairy godfather.
From the first episode about the magic but non-germinating seeds that Mr. O'Malley supplies for Barnaby's victory garden through Mr. O'Malley's race for Congress, you will meet a host of wonderful characters: Gorgon the talking dog, Atlas the (mental) giant, Gust the ghost, Barnaby's mom and pop, and many others. Of course, most important are the self-assertive Mr. O'Malley and Barnaby himself, whose faith in his gold-bricking fairy godfather is thoroughly heart-warming.
Altogether there are eight completely fantastic episodes in this book. By the time you have finished them — unless you are different from millions of other readers — you, too, will have become an ardent Barnaby fan.
