"Here I lie, I have a tumor... And you ask me where's my sense of humor?"
It's one of the startling stories on this list of the most depressing children's picture books ever written!
Curious George didn't really die of a drug overdose. But did you know there's children's picture books about the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, the holocaust, and the Los Angeles riots? (Plus one about a court jester in a cancer ward -- with a foreward written by Maurice Sendak!)
Jane Goodall even wrote one about a baby monkey whose parents are both shot by hunters!
