Bottersnikes and Gumbles



Which reminded me of this:



for reasons, I can't remember or even hope to explain. The Gumbles could be squashed into any shape, and I liked that. I think they may have had some musical ability too, with florid songs mesmering themselves and the Bottersnikes...and I think I remember them tape recording things and editing them like little mini-Burroughs's...

A very odd book. I read it to the little one recently. I like the idea of the dreaming Bottersnike.
