When I’m at a Halfprice Bookstore, I usually check out the foreign children’s book section. None really captured my heart today, but while flipping through this one I found something interesting.

Another Russian newspaper. [Back Cover]

How did these end up in this book? Did the soldier really use a children’s book to brush up on his Russian? Maybe it was suppose to be a sweet gift or a gag gift?

What’s your theory?
