AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A boy who has no sense of smell decides to wear his socks for three straight months, believing that doing so will cause nearby people to fall asleep. It is not just people, even animals are affected. But the person he most wants to use them on is his enemy, who is planning to slaughter his 200-year-old turtle friend. Was later adapted as an episode of Round The Twist.'   (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unbearable_(short_story_collection))
