Pierre Bear

Pierre Bear by Patricia M. Scarry
At first glance it looks like a harmless Little Golden Book, except is that a gun on the cover? Yes, it is, and Pierre uses it to go hunting. The book is available from Amazon, you can even get a new copy, but it will cost you $400. Quite an increase from the 25 cent price they cost originally.

Patricia was Richard Scarry's wife. Richard did the illustrations. I know of him because we bought several of his books for our kids.

Via Jack, who still has his copy.

Is Pierre Bear hunting humans?
If so what happens next?
I don't want to know, and I don't think this would be classified as a good-night book for children.

But might make a block buster screen play.
Can't be any worse than what I've seen on Netflix lately.
