Step aside, pops

Step aside, Pops: a Hark! a vagrant collection / Kate Beaton, 166 pgs.

A comic take on classic literature, feminism, and historical figures, Kate Beaton once again shows us how to be hilarious and somewhat serious at the same time.  Some of the people featured are obscure historical figures and others are well known.  Ever wonder about the relationship between composers Chopin and Liszt? Maybe you can find your insight here.  What if Cinderella's fairy godmother had made her a body builder instead of a garden variety babe? Wondering how the founding fathers would react to a modern mall?  Clearly Jefferson would buy a singing fish.  Always great, Beaton encourages thinking.
