This is a story book based on the premise that children are more mature than we give them credit for. They are very creative when allowed. Encourage it! The stories contain riddles, puzzles, nonsense, twists on standard chestnuts, a lot of silliness, and some strange characters such as a jackalope and a capybara. Some stories are prose, others poetry.
Length of stories ranges from 1 page to 18. Depending on the level of impatience pick a length to suit the mood.
