Reviewed by Gerry Meek

Gerry Meek was a librarian in Thunder Bay, Ontario.


This book consists of a collection of cartoons depicting various uses for a certain well-known Maggie T. Despite its title, however, only 97 possible uses are in fact suggested, leaving its readers to come up with four of their own. Whether this is too few or too many is perhaps outside the scope of this review. As to the uses which are suggested, these run the gamut of everything from the near end of a four-legged creature resembling a horse or a mule to a bottle opener to a toilet paper dispenser. Irreverent, in places outrageous, but only occasionally very funny, this book appears to have missed its intended audience by about two years.
