Picks and Pans Review: Pussycats Need Love, Too

by George Booth

Booth's characters—cat and dog lovers, victimized by acquisitions—are, like those of fellow New Yorker cartoonist George Price, raffish and quixotic. But Booth's drawings are as distinctive as any great artist's work. Two examples: An old man sits on a rickety porch, binoculars fixed on an old lady with a cane. He says, "By Jupiter, an angel! Or, if not, an earthly paragon!" In another cartoon, a butler whispers to a horse in the living room, "He's nuts. She's nuts. All three young ones are nuts. The dog is nuts. And the old lady upstairs is nuts, too." (Dodd, Mead, $8.95)
