Blah! Mr. Raisin is a bit of a grump. He lives all alone in a little house, and he likes it that way just fine.
One day, a mysterious basket appears on Mr. Raisin’s doorstep. When he opens it up, it seems there’s nothing inside . . . until he notices a floating dog bobbing along his ceiling.
What follows is a heartwarming, hilarious tale about embracing the unexpected—and finding friendship that takes you to new heights, in John Himmelman's Floaty.
