Christmas 2008 had a memorable
event that I can share--opening my gift from my daughter Nicole, a nineteen
year old college sophomore. Nicole is a creative thinker and has always had
a gift at writing, art, and just about anything else she tries. Imagine my
surprise when I unwrap a simple flat present to find a copy of Curious
George and the Puppies modified to be Curious
George and the Ebola Virus.
Well, gift opening had to stop right there as Dad got to read his new book to the rest of the family. I read through the whole thing laughing so hard that I had to stop and wipe my tears and regain my composure many times.
The new version of the story fit so well. The expressions on the faces of the Man With The Yellow Hat were so insidious. Curious George was blissfully unaware of all the despair and doom around him. This book became instantly a gem in our family treasure lore.
Since then I've shared the book with others and they always get a big kick out of it. Click here to read the book.
