    1. This is the book on gluttony in Pene du Bois' series on the seven deadly sins. A very fat boy goes off to boarding school. When the hockey team's skinny goalie goes down, Porko von Popbutton is recruited to stand in goal. Kind of a weird one, but great illustrations as usual for Pene du Bois. Never would have gotten published today - a lot of fat-boy mockery.

    2. Fairly cute children's book. One of a series based on the seven deadly sins. Written in the late sixties, it is politically incorrect based on today's standards for interactions and appropriate approaches to teaching moral lessons, but the idea behind it is still somewhat solid. One of these days I'll track down the others just to see how they all balance out.
