Publisher Description

The internationally acclaimed author of the Stella and Sam series has created a collection of short, funny illustrated stories.

This hilarious collection of illustrated stories gives us a glimpse into the things children wonder about every day.

What do cats really see? What do trees talk about? Should you make funny faces on a windy day? Do worms rule the world? Do mothers always tell the truth? Do snails have nightmares?

These short stories are illustrated in vibrant watercolor and collage in cartoon style. They are rich in detail and tiny humorous subplots that will delight all little sharp-eyed monsters.
