No doubt you’ve at some point considered how to invite a squirrel and a seal to your birthday party or wondered about ways to coax spring into arriving ten times faster than normal. Maybe you’re still working out what firefighters and Pop Rocks have in common. You may have even wracked your brain over why Grandpa’s trips to the grocery store take longer than anyone else’s and when the next herring disco is set to happen. Readers will find an array of familiarities and mundane miracles in Look’s stories, but also an intention to make our ordinary world a cozier and more sensible, livable environment.
