Why was #21 not published? I can't think why not...

Hehe good stuff there .... my personal fav. was "That's it, I'm putting you up for adoption", followed closely by "You are different and that's bad."

Re: Children's books that didn't make it

My sides hurt... too funny! I have a few kids so I can see why these weren't published. I'm still laughing while I type this, so I hope this makes sense.
My personal favorite: Curious George and the High Voltage Fence.
I grew up on the farm way out in no man's land, population 100 including the cows. That's how sad of a town I lived in. Anyways, to keep the cows in the pastures people used electric fences or hot wires. I've touched a few and boy do they smart!!! Also, it was the dare for all the little boys to pee on the hot wires . I'm so glad I'm not a boy! Touching them by accident was pain enough.

I'n suprised "Your are Different and thats Bad" didnt make it, sounds like a sure sell for the American government.
