Book Review


On a not-so-ordinary farm, the farmer Bald has died. His son Bones is now unchecked and free to release his wrath on his arch nemesis, Fat the Fairy. This starts a chain of unusual and often unfortunate events. The farmer’s wife cries until there are inches of water on the floor. A little mouse must sail across this new ocean to reach the mouse he loves on the other side. Fat makes a potion for Bones that requires spider blood, and the not-so-adventurous spider Leonard must save the day. From a sneezing dog to a dancing pig, animals and humans wreak havoc upon the farm until the Man in the Moon himself wanders if it could ever be fixed.
