Foothand Elbownose tells the story of an unhappy foot, and a boy who just wants what’s best for everyone.
Max’s foot is fed up and wants to be a hand instead — he’s over puddles and prickles and being trod on every day — and Max, being ever so obliging, agrees. All is fine until the other body parts start putting in requests of their own, and when Max finds himself with not only a foothand but an elbownose, headbottom and a mouthear, he has no choice but to send the body parts back to where they belong. Which, as it happens, suits them.
