'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? How do you recover your opal when a goat has swallowed it? What was Splinter's job before he was born? You'll never guess. And you'll have to wait till the last page of each story to find out.'
