Abstract:

"The small boy Conrad had an essay to write about the South Seas. An unemployed circus-horse, which was also a champion roller-skater, offered to take him to the Pacific Islands for the afternoon in the company with Conrad's Uncle Ringel. They passed through the Land of Cockayne, where the trees provide fruit salad and cream and the hens lay fried eggs and bacon; then the fortress of the Mighty Past where Uncle Ringel had words with Napoleon, and george Washington volleyed a tennis-ball on to Julius Caesar's nose. In the Topsy-turvey country they found unsatisfactory parents being trained by children, and then came Electropolis, where no one worked and everything was done by machines. Surviving an attack by sharks on the equator, they reached the South Seas, met a charming little girl named Parsley, encountered tigers and a whale, were feasted by cannibals, and got home safely in time of supper. No one in the class wrote an essay like Conrad's" --Inside front dust jacket.
