Partisan. Political satire through text and illustration have a long history. Actor John Lithgow has expanded beyond his acting chops to display his writing and drawing skill in his book titled, Dumpty: The Age of Trump in Verse. The illustrations by the author are terrific, and the verse contains a partisan bite that will delight some readers and annoy others. If you like watching The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, you’re likely to enjoy Lithgow’s book which the author read in part on that show.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
