'Thomas is nine and he's started writing a book. His father says all important books are about God. Even so, Thomas writes down all the interesting things he sees that other people seem to ignore: tropical fish in the canal, a deluge of frogs, the Son of God popping in for a chat ...
'He also writes down his greatest determination: When I grow up, I'm going to be happy.
'Featuring Jesus, the angels, the Bottombiter, the startling Mrs Van Amersfoort and a beautiful girl with a leather leg, this is a totally magical story about a child learning to act when faced with fear and wrong. Acclaimed children's author Guus Kuijer's magnificently humble story grabs your heart, challenges your mind, and makes you laugh, no matter how old you are.' (From the publisher's website.)
