Another wonderfully entertaining 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 chasing cats, eating whatever food his owners leave unattended, and people watching. With his sidekicks Jock and Yorkie, Fred Basset's brilliantly dry wisecracks grace publications worldwide.
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.
