Can you guess what bikes decide to do when they get bored waiting for their owners all day? Or what happens to a talking tennis ball who relishes saying “pling!” and “bop!”? Do you have any idea how a fly could pull off coaxing a whole city full of car owners to walk instead of drive? If you do, then there’s no point in reading the stories in The Candy Monster. And if you still read it, then at least you can compare your own fantastic knowledge to that of the author.
