"From our Marschall Books imprint comes this magnificent collection of Mr. Twee Deedle, Johnny Gruelle's masterpiece, unjustly forgotten by history and never before reprinted since its first appearance in America's newspapers from 1911 to 1914. The title character in the Sunday color page, Mr. Twee Deedle, is a magical wood sprite who befriends the strip's two human children, Dickie and Dolly. Gruelle depicted a charming, fantastical child's world, filled with light whimsy and outlandish surrealism"--Publisher's web site. Also includes an essay, with illustrations, by Rick Marschall, a portfolio of early book illustrations, and some Brutus comic strips.
