This book is about a little boy who had no desire to use his brain, unless it had some connection to his make-believe world. He complained that he did not know how to dress himself or how to put on his coat . It was even harder to put his shoes on the right feet or to button his shirt up correctly. On top of all that, his mother expected him to brush his hair and to brush his teeth. He wished God had given him an extra toy instead of a brain. Using his brain took too much time away from his make-believe world. Therefore, he wished he did not have a brain. He was convinced that he would be fine without a brain.
