Have a Happy Measle, and a Merry Mumps and a Cheery Chickenpox
Today we have an oldie, but a goodie, thanks to an alert Twitter follower. Since this is before widespread application of the vaccines for childhood illnesses, maybe these authors were just trying to spin disease as a fun vacation from school. As a child, I had measles, mumps and chickenpox and just about everyone else I knew did too. It was almost a rite of passage. I don’t really remember it being this “fun”, though. It’s definitely a weeder, but also an awesome relic from the olden days.
Stay healthy everyone!
Submitter: I can just imagine the pitch for this book: “It’s like All Creatures Great And Small, but about a dentist! For people! With cartoons of dental mishaps!” Wish I could see the librarian book that is blurbed on the back cover…
Holly: This is an odd little book. And that blurb on the back has nothing to do with this one. This is cataloged as biography, so it contains anecdotes from a dentist’s memoirs. It might have circulated in public libraries at the time it was published, but now it just seems really random.
