Nobody knows for certain where the Tiny Headed Kingdom lies. Is it far beyond the seas? Just over the mountains? Maybe right under our noses?
But one day, without explanation and as if by magic, the strangest animals began to appear, like balloons or lollipops or birthday cakes or other fun things that are mostly round.
The animals had tiny heads and great big hearts. And as everyone soon discovered – all they wanted to do was hug.

Twist is very silly. His tiny head is not concerned with words like serious.
One day, Twist painted sprinkles on a car tire and pretended it was a doughnut. Everyone knew it was a tire because it was so big and because it tasted like rubber.
