I want this book!

While reading a very interesting blog found HERE
I learned of a comic strip that used to be in the Washington 
Post from 2004 till 2007.  It really made me laugh.  It is called 

The third and latest collection, Cul de Sac Golden 
Treasury: A Keepsake Garland of Classics (2010), 
would make a good introduction — it collects strips
 from the first two volumes, Cul de Sac: This Exit
 (2008) and Children at Play: A Cul de Sac Collection
(2009).  Not incidentally, the first book features a 
foreword by Bill Watterson, who writes, “I thought 
the best newspaper comic strips were long gone,
 and I’ve never been happier to be wrong.  Richard 
Thompson’sCul de Sac has it all — intelligence, 
gentle humor, a delightful way with words, and, 
most surprising of all, wonderful, wonderful drawings.”
