Description

Tom Potts was fooling with a gun (Such follies should not be), When; bang! The pesky thing went off most unexpectedly! Long before Richard Scarry or Dr. Seuss, an American artist delighted a generation of children and their parents with hilarious, topsy-turvy illustrations and slightly subversive tales told in rhyme. This was illustrator/author Peter Newell. Originally published in 1908, The Hole Book remains as profoundly enjoyable and incredibly popular as ever. With humorous text and irresistible drawings, this classic work will delight readers of all ages with the story of Tom Potts’ bullet, which leads him through all sorts of unexpected scenes and adventures, each funnier than the last. Peter Newell (1862-1924) began his career as an artist drawing portraits, using crayons as his medium. In his fantastic humour, many believe, is the first appearance of the gentle humour of the absurd which The New Yorker has subsequently developed to such a high level.show more
