The book

Ok so this is the book I mentioned yesterday.


-
Now I'm not quite sure what to say about it.
It's so crazy and strange and amusing, as you will see by time you get to the end of this post.
The story is not really out of the ordinary.
Just the pictures.... (!)

Somebody thought that this was a good idea, and thought it looked good, and thought it should be printed and sold.
-
-
And then somebody else presumably thought it was a good idea, and looked good, and bought it to read to their children.



Well of course now I've bought it.



But not because I thought it was a good idea, and that it looked good, and I should read it to the kids.


Those pandas look like they've been on too many photo shoots in the countryside.

It's kind of more on the side of horror film than children's story book. Don't you think.

It's one of those things, you know it's weird, but something compels you to keep turning the pages, like you just have to know 'can it get any worse'. I wonder what the authors were thinking.

lol.
The funny thing is I could see some children pouring over it for hours and it being one of their favourite books.
I wonder how many sold as it's the adults who usually hand over the money to purchase.

No wonder Pandas are on the endangered list-how many did they kill-oops I mean 'euthanaise'-to get those shots?! The characters all look like they are on heavy doses of Prozac!This could be a good book for children about the dnagers of substance abuse!
