Ralph believes he is the court jester of God, the distraction for all boredom in Heaven. His life is a series of mishaps that sends his mind into a quandary of fantasies enabling him to cope with whatever the world throws at him. The tale begins with his explaining his youth, thereby justifying the rest of the story. Being a true romantic, he takes us through his wedding, reception, and subsequent honeymoon in Hawaii, where if anything can go wrong it does. Not just slightly wrong, but putting a twist on the word that is a cross between Dr. Suess and Dave Barry. Yet, he never questions the idea of love. He maintains happiness and optimism throughout his adventures, giving each of us hope that despite our own troubles there may be a light ahead...unless there is a convention in town.
Mr. Small is going on holiday, but preparing for a holiday is very different for someone so small!
