President Obama buys 2 books by cartoonists

When he shopped at DC's excellent bookstore Politics and Prose last Saturday, President Obama bought 2 books by cartoonists, according to the list on CNN. Neither of the books would be thought to be cartoon books:

"Harold and the Purple Crayon" is a children's book by Crockett Johnson, who also did the truly great comic strip Barnaby, now available from Fantagraphics.

"Ottoline and the Yellow Cat" is by Chris Riddell, a British cartoonist and illustrator.

Comics. They're everywhere.
