“Baba Yaga, I’ve been meaning to ask you. How did your house get such large chicken legs?”

“I was reading a little something by Gregor Mendel about the hereditary characteristics of pea plants. I decided to try a little do-it-yourself engineering in the privacy of my own home. It went rather badly wrong. I don’t like to talk about it.” (p. 233.)

“A series of dreamy, expertly painted vignettes, set pieces both absurd and spectacular.”
—The New York Times Book Review
