...then there's "The Story of Ping," which's review describes as

     "The tale of a little duck alone on the Yangtze River, The Story About
     Ping is a sweet and funny book with wonderfully rich and colorful
     illustrations." (snip)

...but the first customer review differs a little bit, starting with:

     "Using deft allegory, the authors have provided an insightful and
     intuitive explanation of one of Unix's most venerable networking
     utilities. Even more stunning is that they were clearly working with
     a very early beta of the program, as their book first appeared in
     1933, years (decades!) before the operating system and network
     infrastructure were finalized." (snip)
