Weezer changes the world, written and illustrated by David McPhail. Beach Lane, Simon & Schuster, 2009. $19.99 ages 3 and up
"As a puppy, Weezer was perfectly normal. He did all the usual things that puppies do."
He didn't set out to do it but, when events of the world changed Weezer, he, in turn, managed to change the world! We all have the feeling that one person can't do much. Weezer proves us wrong right here and now. He started out doing all the regular things that we expect dogs to do. When lightning strikes, he makes some remarkable changes. People are very impressed. Then lightning strikes again and the world mourns. It's always surprising the promises that are made when death is imminent and the will is strong. Remarkably Weezer recovers and goes back to what is normal behavior. The people of the world...well, that's a different story.
