Pogo Author:Walt Kelly It might perhaps be an overstatement to say that the 26 million readers of the 205 papers in which the comic strip POGO appeared bought those papers just to read POGO. There are undoubtedly some readers who looked at other things in the papers. For the benefit of those who were late in getting to their seats, it should be explained that Pogo is ... more »an opossum -- or a 'possum. It is known that his home is in the southern swamplands and that the language spoken by him and his colleagues is identical with that used by animals who are currently employed in such areas.
Eventually the characters decided for themselves that they would settle for nothing less than the big-league park in southern Georgia, the wonderland called Okefenokee.
If you are not already a Pogo addict, it is because you haven't read a paper he was in, and because you haven't read this book. Just start in on the first page and you will become one.« less
