Bud the SpudBook - 2012
"Bud was a kid, like any other kid. He liked pizza and ice cream. He liked to watch TV. But what happens when a kid (like any other kid) eats way too much junk food and watches way too much TV, and never, ever leaves the couch? You guessed it—he turns into a couch potato. Literally! You won’t believe what happens to him next. . . . In a unique feature, the book has three separate endings—three different outcomes for poor Bud—which range from the positive and uplifting to the decidedly macabre. Kids will scream and laugh and wince (it scores a 10 on the gross-out scale), while some parents may initially think the comic mayhem is too over-the-top—until they see their kids giggling and reading the book over and over. And this is a very good thing, because behind the humor is a serious message. This is a stealth weapon to help combat childhood obesity, a tool to convince young people that aspiring to be a couch potato is no aspiration at all." -- from publisher's website.
