John Offord is the author of Bees Make Honey and Butterflies Make Jam. This is a witty and unusual book. The endearing title sets the tone, reinforcing that we don’t know quite what to expect from this book! It consists of 12 very short stories and 3 humorous advertisements. Here is a taste of what you can expect from this amusing book. There are four stories with princesses in the central roles: a beautiful but unlucky princess, Princess Stroppy whose father’s wellington boots keep being stolen, Princess Hannah who travels to Mars and Siam, and Princess Cresty, a giant-crested whale who had something to do with the formation of the land on planet Earth. There also is an unusual story comparing the number of germs on a dishcloth with the germs on a toilet seat, an imaginative tale about holes, buttons, and buttonholes, ice-cream loving mice and their bank overdraft, an arrogant spaceship captain, a strange tale about bored villagers who didn’t know that the lights in the sky where the Wright Brother’s new invention, the airplane, and a story about a person who went for a job interview and was convinced of success, even though the reader can tell the answers given to the interview questions were hopeless. The advertisements are the cleverest part of the book. I recommend this book to those who would enjoy stories that don’t conform to expectations. Susan Gibbs, A LoveReading Ambassador
