Fables as you’ve never heard then before. There’s the story of Little Walrus who tells just a little too much of the truth, and the morality tale of the boastful Piece of Toast and Fruit Loops. We read of Slug, so busy admiring herself that she doesn’t see the steamroller behind her, and learn the wise lessons of Hand, Foot, and Tongue (Moral: There are some things we don’t talk about at the dinner table). In their inimitable style, the authors have created contemporary fables that reflect all the bossiness, sneakiness, bragging and silliness of our everyday lives.
