Synopsis

Quirky Tails! More Oddball Stories by Paul Jennings

Quirky? You can say that again ...I have an eye on my finger and a little face in my throat. I start to cry. Tears fall down my face. And down my finger. The eye on my finger is shedding tears too. You'll be speechless. A strangling rose. A ghost chicken. A tiny hole for a mouth. A living copy - of yourself. Football toads.
