The book contains 32 slightly silly stories about all sorts of occurrences. There is a girl who fibs and fibs; a princess who loves killing dragons more than anything else; an obedient soldier who does everything his general commands (until he ultimately ends up on the Moon!); and a carrot that has a strange dream about being a cabbage, which has a dream about being a carrot, which has a dream about being a butterfly, which has a dream about being a carrot in turn!

Piret Raud’s tales, which are chock full of absurdity and written in a warm, humorous tone, take a stock of life’s more unexpected facets.
