Description

From a dog who accidentally becomes the first animal on Mars, a hopeless chess player dealing with his sports-mad dad, and a girl whose dreams are getting too big for her bed, to a boy who has had 1000 names - so far. Not to mention, the strange boy who never seems to get brain freeze (until...), these short stories will blow your mind.
