Imagine what it would be like to made of something different – like lollipops, metal or feathers! With the help of fun rhyming text and amazing illustrations, follow a little boy as his imagination runs wild and he explores what it might be like to breathe underwater or be made entirely of feathers. Although being made of feathers, fluff or sweets might sound amazing, he discovers that everything comes with a catch. He eventually realises that just being yourself is actually the best thing after all. Throughout the years, QEB has built this successful Storytime series. These charming books combine colorful illustrations with heart-warming narrative, each with its own unique message.

Praise For Storytime: Fins, Fluff, and other Stuff

"Each stanza of Merz and Blow's rhyming text begins with 'If I were made of...' and amusingly shows, as well as tells, a variety of possibilities, all the more appealing for their unexpectedness....Lively, entertaining, and educational to boot." Kirkus Reviews
