Johan wakes up feeling well-rested and ready to take on the world one morning. But where are his mom and dad? Why can’t he smell a mouth-watering breakfast wafting in from the kitchen? The boy discovers his mother making a crown in her bedroom and his father sailing paper boats in the bathtub. They’re both behaving bizarrely and seem to have no recollection of who Johan is. What is he to do? The boy reckons his teacher can help, so he hurries off to school. However, standing at the front of the room is Johan’s classmate, who is ordering around the old people sitting at the desks. The teacher herself has climbed up a tree outside with cat whiskers drawn on her cheeks. What the heck is going on? How can he get things back to the way they were?
