The world might have ended up with Dharma Beaver (Jack Kerouac), The Beaver of Wrath (John Steinbeck), Cries and Beavers (Ingmar Bergman), Waiting for Wally (Samuel Beckett), and Beaver on a Hot Tin Roof (Tennessee Williams) or adaptations of past classics such as Lady Cleaver's Beaver, The Brothers Cleaver, and The Beaver and the Pauper.

    Seriously, the more you've read in your life, the funnier you'll think this book is. Perhaps the ultimate compliment I can pay it is to say it's the kind of book that makes you want to read other books...

    What if the world's literati led a movement to save Leave it to Beaver when it was canceled in 1963? This book asks and answers that question with hilarious results. It's not Shakespeare, Vonnegut, or Tennessee Williams, but it parodies all of them.

    Funny concept, but I fear I'm not familiar enough with many of the spoofed authors. English majors will love it!

    This might just be the greatest book ever written since "Bored of the Ring".

    Of all the books I've read, this was one of them.
