Credit goes to Book Riot for bringing this little gem to our attention. Also, my friend Brian, who sent me that link. I verified library holdings just to be sure it is an awful “library” book and not just a weird book…and it is. The holdings are mostly in New Zealand and South Africa, but an ALB is an ALB. Universally.
It’s not just that it is 41 years old. It’s not just that it has that horrible “plastic food” photography. It’s not just that it has very strange ideas of what to do with bananas. It’s all of those things combined.
I’m calling it: this one is a weeder. (And I WANT it for my family’s Christmas gag gift exchange.)
