Kamon Therrienabout this book: I live in Asia, and after the floods we had in 2011, many stories of bad deeds were reported in the Medias. People used the flooded areas as opportunities for robbery or other similar crimes.
It is not human or is it human to do such things? Why many people are taking advantage of others who are already afflicted. Is there something we can do about it?
When a tsunami devastated the East coast of Japan, I read that none of this happened over there. I read that there were no cases of criminal activities in the areas where the disaster had stricken in Japan. I also read that Japanese people stick together in case of disaster.
This is where I got the idea for !Oh No! I realized that taking advantage or not of afflicted people is not a trait; people are not born like that. People get that from their culture, the way they are taught at home and at school. That also means that if in societies, people have a tendency to take advantage of others, it can be changed, it can be shaped.
!Oh No!, is a picture book for all, no matter how old you are, you will giggle reading it. It's a satire, a story where a snake and a rat are trying to save a grandmother against a vile robber. The snake who is traditionally a bad guy, becomes a protector in !Oh No! Not long to read, under 1000 words. Great lesson funny to read!
