Dark Day for Curious George

Alan J. Shalleck, one of the collaborators for the Curious George childrens’ book series, was found dead Tuesday morning. You can check the link for the grim details, but it’s not clear whether the death (under seemingly suspicious circumstances) is related to the writer’s celebrity or the upcoming release of the animated movie based on the Curious George books. In any case, we’re very sorry to hear of this loss.

    As some of you know, I’m a Curious George fan from way back. This is terrible.

    I was already brooding over the fact that the new cartoon George doesn’t look the same as the original, but that concern pales to this news.
