Clang-clang went the trolley!

Jack of all arts...
15 minutes of fame...
...steps along the highway in this so very affectionate a memoir
a distinguished cartoonist's magical tale...
a comic book hero first...
A truly charming, truly wholesome, truly affectionate book. Besides all of that, the lovely creative treasures you will find on these magical pages are the contributions of THREE generations of Antonio/Anthony/Tony Tallaricos! - each of them with an artist's eye and a story-telling soul.
Additionally, this memoir of a young boy's spirited process on his way to becoming a world-renowned cartoonist, tells the story of how the world's first African-American comic book hero was imagined, nurtured, and eventually came into the world.
From humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York, we follow the middle Antonio/Anthony/Tony Tallarico's long and successful career as an illustrator. We share with him his hard work; we celebrate with him his lucky breaks; we appreciate with him the loving relationships surrounding his charmed life. Starting out as an industry "go-fer" ("go for/get me this! go for/get me that"), his path led him through the world of drawing comics, and into the universe of creating thousands of children's books - for such distinguished publishers as Simon&Schuster, Kidsbooks Inc, Modern Publishing, Tuffy Books, and Putnam.
Bottom line: his story is proof that nice guys can finish first!
