This book is about everyday objects becoming human rather than about humans becoming materialistic. Throughout the collection of 36 humorous stories, the author looks into the world of things, objects, and animals surrounding him. A pelican that makes a “pot” of soup by heating up a lake full of fish, a car that lays eggs, and a flashlight that decides to give darkness instead of light, the characters and stories in this unusual compilation will encourage young readers to exercise their imaginations.
Age range: 5 - 9.
