Earle Dickson and his new bride Josephine begin their lives together. The end. (Not really. There's more.) Josephine has a… proclivity for injuring herself. Earle attaches cotton to long strips of adhesive tape, telling Josephine to cut off a length when she needs one. Since Earle works as a cotton buyer at Johnson and Johnson, he shares his idea. They're a big hit. The end. (Again, not really!) After a few false starts (much like the hilarious "the end"s in this story), the Band-Aid is developed and becomes a massive hit. The end. (Really.). Grades K-3. 2018.

في صَبيحَةِ يَوْمٍ باكِرٍ، وَفي بَلْدَةٍ صَغيرَةٍ ما زالَ أَهْلُها نِيامًا، لَعْلَعَ صَوْتُ صَناديقَ تُفْرِغُها سِتُّ شاحِناتٍ. بَيْنَما كانَتِ الشّاحِناتُ تُغادِرُ… المَكانَ، كانَ «سام سِكيبر» يُنادي بِأَعْلى صَوْتِهِ: «كُلُّ ما أَحْتاجُهُ اليَوْمَ هُوَ صُنْدوقانِ اثْنانِ فَقَطْ».
