The Little Baby Snoogle Fleejar: 05/25/08
The Little Baby Snoogle-Fleejer is the first book I've read by a former president and among the weirdest children's books I've read. The crux of the story is pretty straightforward: it's your classic "don't judge a book by its cover" type story.
The story is told as a fairy tale beginning in the usual "Once upon a time..." fashion. It follows a Jeremy who lives at the sea with his mother. Jeremy spends his days sitting on the beach mostly by himself because he can't walk (and I guess therefore has no friends?)
Jeremy comes into his own though when he can save the beach from a horrible sea monster, who of course isn't really horrible, just different. The monster in question is the title character.
Morals abound at the end:
It looks rather... strange. But a good message. "
That's a fair assessment."
