When you open this book, you are welcomed to a very strange land! A round little egg-like man appears to be perched precariously on a wall, and an old woman lives in a shoe! There are mice that love to run up clocks , and tuffets with spilled curds and whey. The spider (who caused the spill!) and the mouse both have a small motors in them that make them move. All edible - no styrofoam!
