Cartoonists are passionate about Richard Thompson’s work, and Cul de Sac has been given high praise from Bill Watterson.
Cul de Sac chronicles the absurdly wonderful adventures of the Otterloop family. Alice, Petey, Mom, and Dad live in the cookie-cutter suburbs not far from the interstate. Here, and at school, their day-to-day life unfolds with simple joys, tiny infractions, and wonderful moments of gentle bliss.
In this specially curated collection for kids, the quirky world of Cul de Sac comes to life for a new audience.
