It came from the internet! Reddit user FVND found this incredible book and took scans of the pages. It is very much in german, but english translations are luckily embedded with the photos. Scroll through below, and keep a box of tissues near by, because this thing is freaking adorable.
The actual book is called “Daddy’s Roommate,” and it’s written by Michael Willhoite. It was published in 1991, and evidently the english version of the book stirred some controversy in 2008 when an old story of then VP candidate Sarah Palin tried to get the book pulled from her local library back in 1995. “I can tell you right now, Ms. Palin is a very good mother and everything. But she is my mortal enemy,” Willhoite told the Huffington Post in 08. “She is one of the enemies of the First Amendment and I can hardly [organize] my thoughts here, I am so offended by this.”
The book appears to be out of print these days, but perhaps someone has a copy of this amazing children’s book in some box someplace and they will be willing to part with it. All i can think about is how amazing the darker haired fella’s pencil mustache is.
