Published more than 50 years ago, the original Pat the Bunny has sold millions of copies en route to its reign as one of the best-selling children's books ever. Faithfully following the original, Pat the Money also features Paul and Judy, here cast as baby boomers, born before 1960, "able to do lots of things." In the original, "You can do lots of things, too." In the parody, you can still do lots of things-you just cannot afford to do them quite the way Paul and Judy can because you were born after 1960. You're a buster. The ultimate take-off on the interactive favorite, Pat the Money is the perfect graduation/welcome to real life/new parent gift book for downwardly mobile Americans with a sense of humor.
