Summary Sally Morgan writes and illustrates some of her best short stories in this amusing and entertaining compilation. Have you ever wished your brother was a fish? Or screamed so loud that the hairs of a caterpillar fell off? These are just some of the fun stories written and illustrated by Sally Morgan. The witty stories, with a folktale feel, are based around a host of characters which are Australian animals, non-native animals, spirits, planets, the sun and moon, and humans
