The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

Little folks

In this cartoon by B. "Tack" Knight, hunger sparks creativity. Three small children (Daisy, Baxter, and an unnamed girl) comment on how hungry they are. They come across an older girl, Janet, who tells them that she’s going to the grocery store and buy dog biscuits. Daisy volunteers to run Janet’s errand. When Daisy returns, Janet finds that she has purchased animal crackers. Daisy replies that she’d “get somethin’ that the doggies and all of us could enjoy.”
