Author Comment

This story began as a means of coaxing small children through their meals. I wouldn’t go on till they’d eaten another spoonful. It gave me plenty of time to think about the next surreal twist. I found that great fun, but not at all easy to reproduce the same kind of spontaneous zest in print.
