Flip here has two meanings, I think: the other side and the not so serious side of Bermuda. In fact, the book's fifteen fables are not only fanciful, as the flyleaf proclaims, but often a bit surrealistic. What happens here is not only unexpected but weird. The Cocktail Party tells of an encounter with a lizard who turns into one guest after another at the party. Electric Priests tells of three golfing priests who were struck by lightning, became sources of electricity, and founded their own power company. The glossy art is essential to these stories. Do not miss the illustration or the story of The Plimptons, which features this headline about a henpecked husband who did chores on Saturdays until the broom stuck to his hand: Brad and Broom Welded for Life. I like this wacky book!
