A peculiar girl, a sudden rash of pregnancies, and a dead thing that speaks. Something unsettling has come to Wonder Island, and since the whole place is a carnival, full of things not quite human, that's saying a lot. Wolfram, proprietor of--and exhibit in--Wolfram's Cabinet of Peculiarities, has to find out what's wrong before the bodies begin to accumulate.
A pregnant girl in a yellow dress appears one day in Wolfram's Cabinet of Peculiarities. There's nothing specifically wrong with her, but there's also something not quite right. Wolfram, aka "The Illustrated Mannikin, World's Only Fully Tattooed Dwarf," seems to be the only one who notices, but the girl's pregnancy seems to be catching. And then there's the matter of the dead baby on the jar, that keeps insisting on talking.
