Alan J. Shalleck, one of the collaborators for the Curious George childrens' book series, was found dead Tuesday morning
. You can check the link for the grim details, but it's not clear whether the death (under seemingly suspicious circumstances) is related to the writer's celebrity or the upcoming release of the animated movie based on the Curious George books. In any case, we're very sorry to hear of this loss.
