They levitate along, walking above ground, have feelings, can see and hear without eyes and ears, and on the last page, they ''talk''.


Added DiffLines:

** From the same book, there's the fact that the forest creatures have to be sent away and are all negatively affected (the hummingfish can't hum, the swommee swans can't sing and the barbaloots are sick). Doubles as a TearJerker.

* The ending (or rather [[NoEnding lack thereof]]) of ''TheButterBattleBook'', with two sides of an [[SillyReasonForWar utterly pointless war]] [[MexicanStandoff standing face-to-face, ready to drop their respective world-destroying bombs]]. What makes this especially horrifying is that [[RealitySubtext it's a metaphor for the]] UsefulNotes/ColdWar.
