Overview

"I dreamed again of Fibblestax, sitting among his books, Peering into the candlelight with a calm, thoughtful look. For he's the one who gives a name to every single thing. If not for him we couldn't talk. Or read, or write, or sing..." So begins the delightful fable of Fibblestax, and how he came to be the one who names everything. He has to battle the tricky, red-faced Carr, a man who "gives terrible names to wonderful things." The mayor of their town gives them five things to name, and the final one, "that very strange feeling, a dreamy kind of cheer/the feeling that makes you feel so good when a special friend is near" stumps Carr. But, Fibblestax knows that feeling... With soft, intricately detailed illustrations to accompany the musical text, this book will surely become a special favorite for children of all ages.
