122 Pages. Printed by Angus & Robertson, Sydney

Condition: Very Good

The Bedtime Leunig is exactly that. A great book to curl up with and explore the curious, absurd, philosophical and enlightening messages that Leunig has so cunningly penned. His expertise in casting a new light on old subjects as well as his social messages really stand out as does his take on the darker side of lifes humour. To not know and enjoy Leunig's works is to be missing out on one of lifes true pleasures. If your looking for Australian wit and humour, a pictorial adventure, cariactures and cartoons to warm your life then here they are. Renowned cartoonist Michael Leunig is undoubtedly one of Australia's endearing favorites. He is one of the very few Australians to be honored with the "National Trust Living Treasure" accolade in 1999. Simply a fabulous cartoon book.

This copy has some griming on the outer page edges and the corners are a little dog eared.

At over 30 years old it has been out of print for quite some time so here is a great opportunity to acquire a very reasonable copy. 

Leunig has frequently satirised concepts such as Americanisation, greed, consumerism, corporations and warmongering, in a personal proclamation against the War on Terror. Of particular note were his parodies of political matters, especially those concerning former Australian Prime Minister John Howard and former American president George W. Bush. This has earned Leunig the description of "political cartoonist", though this is misleading as only some of his works are political in nature or reference.
His work has also frequently explored spiritual and religious themes.
