Peter Puddlestick and the Precious Plot
from the book ‘Simon Snootle and OTHER small stories’ by Lorin Morgan-Richards
Simon Snootle and OTHER small stories describe seven misguided tales of humorous woe by several downtrodden characters that are simply looking to be themselves. The book begins with Simon Snootle, a meager young man who lived most of his life at the bottom of a cistern with neighborhood cats. He is not aware of any tragedy of the situation, but rather makes the best of it, knowing that eventually more things will fall in as he did.
