One tiny little hair can ruin everything--especially for a genius. And Hieronymus is no ordinary genius. He knows everything under the sun--from the squishiness of bugs to the bounciness of sausage. And he likes it that way.

Then a single hair blows through the window, a hair that fails to match any of the thirty-six million hairs in his collection. What is Hieronymus to do? Search for the origin of the hair, of course! And that's a quest that leads him to some very unusual places--and surprising discoveries.

The Squishiness of Things is a hilarious, charming, and gorgeously illustrated tale of wisdom and foolishness sure to tickle the funny bone and capture the imagination.
