I saw the baseball field very quietly, there were no fans, no crowd, no players, no equipment, no season. All around the world is a weird year. When it comes to the people, they save their own lives.

Cutie Patootie Dolly Butt
Cutie Patootie Dolly Butt isn’t just lively and fun, with monster trucks, chicken nuggets, and a fish who was gifted a million dollars. Its pages also hold profound insight: “Learning yourself is the most important thing. If you find yourself, that really shows people who you are” (“Don’t See Me as a Shy Person!”). These writers shift from playful language to reflection, investigating their experiences, relationships and identities—or, as one writer puts it, “The Puzzle in My Mind.” Sometimes you “don’t know the details behind life” (“Who Do I Admire?”), but these authors have invented and explored, revealing the depth and connection that fills their worlds.
