Description

Take heed!  The author of this book is about to escort you into a wonderland of strange and mysterious characters that inhabit each riddle and fable you will meet along the way.  You will encounter Santa Claus with a sleigh pulled by a team of miniature poodles; the Devil himself as he plots to ravage the planet by allowing humans to carry out his evil schemes for him; a citified woman who, on her first stay on a farm, attempts to milk the pigs and collect eggs from the cows; famous composers, who exhibit bizarre behavior when they and their wives botch their homemade meals, and you will be challenged by such original riddles as "What is the difference between a poodle and a puddle?" and "What is the fastest growing mountain in the United States?" This book is ideal for those who attend parties where there is a lull requiring pick-me-up humor.  In other words, you are likely to find this book to be an excellent companion on your everyday excursions. Also, the author has tested some of these fables and riddles on both adults and adolescents and the results have generally been equally positive, which makes the book a cheering gift for families.
