    Using humour and nonsense, this book brings together four daring stories that pioneered Portuguese children's literature: The daily life in a country where people live upside-down; a goldfish who wrote a book too hard to be read by his human owner; a Baby Jesus who refused to be God, because that would prevent him from playing like any regular kid; a delicious cake who fights against the sin of gluttony, which prevents people from even touching him.
