Not For the Bibliophobic
Our technical services director, Lady RaDA, has just mentioned on Facebook this bizarre little pop-up book that came across her desk, which we presume is not recommended for those suffering from bibliophobia.
The Pop-up Book of Phobias (1999), created and written by Gary Greenberg, illustrated by Balvis Rubess, with pop-ups by Matthew Reinhart, is listed in our Evergreen Indiana catalog as missing. Apparently, it has been found by Lady RaDA. Better her than moi, I'd venture.
I have a bad feeling about this.
The one below looks a bit like the giant spider in that sci-fi film that Mystery Science Theater 3000 riffed (The Giant Spider Invasion).
I'm really getting creeped-out now.
Okay, I'm outta here!
This must be a grown-up parody of children's pop-up books, I'm hoping. Maybe adult humans will get some laughs. But for us felines, it's just too freaky. We like things in our environment to look normal, as we cats see things. That's why it scares some of my housemates when Scowl-Face wears a hat--or just enters a room, actually.
Let moi know if you think of a way to un-see all this. Thanks.

P.S. We close with "Phobia," by the Kinks, from the album Phobia (1993).
