The Best of Matt 2001

The Best of Matt 2001

by Matthew Pritchett (Author)


Matt - the cartoonist on everyone's breakfast table - on the front page of the Daily Telegraph and three slots on Sundays. 'For some of us, breakfast time is the impossible challenge. We find it hard to crack an egg, still harder to crack a smile. Yet in recent months we have repeatedly found ourselves staggering across the kitchen in a state of visible mirth, thrusting a roughly folded Daily Telegraph under the nose of anyone with time to look, and uttering the single but sufficient syllable "MATT"...When our pocket cartoonist hits the spot, everybody gets happy. And he almost always does hit the spot...Even I smile at breakfast now. The egg I can do without.' Russell Davies
