From little acorns mighty oaks do grow sprung to mind while reading this humorous tale. A small, albeit unusual, incident in a small market town becomes a global concern. The local inhabitants have to adapt to the media onslaught best they can. It causes the world to wonder, and many theories are put forward, 'exactly why do dentists climb trees?'
A most enjoyable easy read.
