Excerpt: Ginger Meggs is the longest-running Australian comic strip; it features the escapades of the title character, a red-haired prepubescent boy with considerable talent for mischief. Most of the strips include either a sense-moral or a wisdom phrase written on one of the images. Ginger lives in an inner suburban working-class household, with a working father and a stay-at-home mother. Meggs first appeared as Us Fellers, in the "Sunbeams" section of the Sydney Sunday Sun on 13 November 1921, drawn by Jimmy Bancks. The strip remains widely syndicated today, appearing in over 120 newspapers in 32 countries. After Jimmy Bancks, Ginger was drawn by Ron Vivian, then Lloyd Piper, James Kemsley and Jason Chatfield. Ginger Meggs was adapted into a feature film by Jonathan Dawson in 1982. On 3 December 2007, James Kemsley, cartoonist for Ginger Meggs for 23 years, died at his home in Welby, New South Wales, and the strip is now drawn by Jason Chatfield with colouring by Hywel Kemsley. In the 2008 Queen's Birthday Honour lists, the Australian Government posthumously recognised Kemsley for his efforts with the Medal of the Order of Australia. In 1985 a postage stamp honouring Ginger or his creator was issued by Australia Post as part of a set of five commemorating children's books. . directed by Jonathan Dawson. ...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=178864
