The long-lost comic strip masterpiece by Crockett Johnson, legendary children's book author and creator of Harold and the Purple Crayon, collected in full! Here is Barnaby's talking dog and Fairy Godfather, Mr. O'Malley. Fantasy characters that clearly set the standard for Calvin and his invisible (to everyone but him) pet tiger, Hobbes. Here the fantastic and the surreal meld perfectly into the "modern" life of the young and naive Barnaby. Not matter how fantastic, he accepts every oddity and craziness that comes his way, all just another day in the life...

Adored by all ages, Barnaby's deft balance of fantasy, timeless humor and elegant cartooning will delight ever the most sophisticated reader.

"I never thought I'd see this day, but the book you hold is, well...the last great comic strip. Yes, there are dozens of other strips worth rereading, but none are this Great; this is like Beethoven or Steinbeck, or Picasso. This is so great it lives in its own timeless bubble of oddness and truth..." -Chris Ware, from his Foreword.
