Phil’s Fables

Phil often feels funny. Especially when somebody asks him a simple question like ‘what did you do today?’ Before he can even begin to think of the events he had been through that day, Phil’s fantasy wakes up and in a split second swirls inside him swiftly making its way to his mouth, tickling his tongue, as he bursts out, through his tiny lips: ‘Today I went to the dentist and it was really strange because he always tells me to stay away from sweets, but when he gave me a cup of water to wash my mouth it tasted like strawberry milkshake! It was awfully hard for me to spit it out...’ This is just one of the many interesting answers to the very same question. This makes everybody wonder whether Phil’s stories are true or not. Well, we’ll only find out the answer to that question by asking him... Or rather, we’ll take a peek into his life and find out for ourselves!
