Another top-notch collection of cartoons from the Daily Mail's classic Fred Basset strip, featuring one of the most endearing and enduring of Britain's cartoon heroes. Fred Basset is without doubt the acknowledged authority on slipper gnawing, cat chasing and people watching and his wonderfully dry wisecracks now grace publications worldwide. The Fred Basset books are collector's items, and sell out each year.
Born in Scotland, Alex Graham began selling cartoons to magazines during World War II. On July 9, 1963, Graham began the comic strip with which he is most closely associated: Fred Basset. The strip still continues in the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, and a book of the Fred cartoons is published every year.
