Beautifully illustrated with wood-cut designs, this is the official 100th anniversary edition of Leacock's most beloved book.

Affectionately combining both the idyllic and ironic, Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town is a as fresh, funny, and insightful today as when it was first published in 1912. Set in fictional Mariposa, an Ontario town on the shore of Lake Wissanotti, these sketches present a remarkable range of characters: some irritating, some exasperating, some foolhardy, but all endearing. Painted with the skilful brushstrokes of a great comic artist, the delightful inhabitants of Mariposa represent the people of small towns everywhere. This is Stephen Leacock at his best - colourful, imaginative, and thoroughly entertaining.
