This is a picture book for little ones and their elders. It is the second in ‘The Earth Blob’ series.
It has been raining heavily for many days and nights. Slumpf is really quite weary, and hopes to find a dreamy night-nest soon. Finally he slimes into a marshy wetland, only to meet a thorny and terrible beast who will ‘try’ not to eat him if he answers some big, important questions correctly.
This is a tale of misadventure. But it is one of love and magic, too. It is about the connection between us all and the beauty in being you, no matter if beast or blob.
It is A4 format, matte, and printed on 100% recycled paper. Jam full with wild and whimsical illustrations.
