Lulu in LaLaLand

Said to be a display at the library in Platteville, Wisconsin, this week. Platteville has a population of about 11,000, and apparently the librarians have a great sense of humor.

(And if you don’t get it: at the Academy Awards Sunday, they announced LaLa Land won best picture, then realized there was a screw-up in the envelopes, and re-awarded the Oscar to Moonlight instead, all on live TV. These children’s books wryly illustrate the debacle in what was really an inconsequential event.)
