Volume One, 1942-1943Book - 2013
Harold and the Purple Crayon cartoonist Crockett Johnson's Barnaby revolves around a precocious five-year-old named Barnaby Baxter and his fairly godfather Jackeen J. O'Malley. Yet O'Malley, a cigar-chomping, bumbling con-artist and fast-talker, is not your typical protector. His grasp of magic is usually specious at best, limited to occasional flashes, often aided and abetted by his fellow members in The Elves, Leprechauns, Gnomes, and Little Men's Chowder & Marching Society.
