Not the book in question, but you get the idea.

Update: If you prefer your news in video format — WTOC has you covered.

Check out their video report here.

First reporting: Beaufort's Shell Point Elementary has been in the news a lot of late, but finally it's for something lighthearted. 

Seems a 54-year-old Burton man came into possession of a circa 1966 children's "A Book of Snakes" and when he realized it was due way back in 1972, he decided to return it to its owner.

Head on over to The Island Packet for the quirky tale.
