1.0 out of 5 stars This book is NOT FOR CHILDREN 21 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This "ABC" book is the disturbing story of a hunter who is in search of the elusive Gumberoo with leathery fireproof skin. On this adventure, he gets a tick in his cheek. The tick orders him to kill an animal for him in exchange for leaving. The hunter complies, but the tick isn't satisfied. The tick grows and grows, and the hunter's cheek swells so large that he cannot bag the rabbit the tick wants. Desperate to get himself out of this situation, the illustration shows the hunter putting the SHOTGUN TO HIS HEAD. The hunter BLOWS HIS BRAINS OUT WITH THE SHOTGUN, COMMITTING SUICIDE. A few hunters find him lying on a path, with his head blown off and a tick on his shirt. My little brother read this book when he was young and was extremely disturbed by it, having nightmares for weeks. I RECOMMEND YOU NOT GET THIS BOOK FOR YOUR CHILD.... EVER.
