Where can you run when you're covered in toenails? Could smelly feet really put you to sleep? Why did Gary go to school with his head in a birdcage? This is a collection of weird tales by the author of "Unreal" and "The Cabbage Patch Fib".

From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-6. Most of the stories in Jennings' new collection are disappointingly routine, with one, "Yuggles," even verging on ridiculous farce. Yet there are still a few that kids will like a lot. In these, Jennings rejuvenates his talent for turning what seems normal into something wickedly funny and surprising. "Licked," one of the more successful stories, has a great middle-school gross-out factor: a flyswatter becomes the instrument of revenge for a child tired of his father's harangues about table manners. Kids will also like the neat reversal in "Only Gilt," in which a boy blames his lively dog for killing the parakeet belonging to a girl that the boy has a crush on. An uneven roundup, best for collections where Jennings' short stories are big movers. Stephanie Zvirin
