    Turtle finally asks, or rather demands, that a goose help him fly. How can one horse hold her five brothers and sisters? His mother chides him, "Oh, Epossumondas, you don't have the sense you were born with! They tease our brains.

    After she looks into the mirror, the king reveals that there was no magic mirror, but that he was instead testing their confidence in themselves. Brother Daniel's comically realistic paintings capture the slapstick frenzy of these characters engaged in battles of wits against the rural Southern landscape that nourished the tales in their infancy. Foolish people inhabit all three. A family takes a camping trip around Australia. Common sense never came packaged in an easier to understand way: simple yet interactive storytelling can save the young all the headaches that they wish to be saved, and they can be entertained at the same time.

    A Jewish boy and a Muslim boy come together to take care of a stray cat. Mac and Mac, who love pie and hate making their beds, are hollow-headed. That's why they're so easy to fool--and their clever friend Meatball isn't afraid to take advantage of that fact. The stories are told with gentle humor--in the spirit of chuckling over the foolishness in all of us, rather than ridiculing "dummies. Who better to tackle the stories of these sister tricksters than the San Souci brothers?
