In this book the great scientist Bombastus Dulcimer gathers some of his inventions like the famous pear balloon or the olea bellica, i.e. an olive shotgun able to shoot once a year, when the olives are ripe. Whenever Bombastus and his inventions pass by, disorder and fun arise, and even the quiet life of an otherwise calm village gets upside down. In the short texts the reader will learn how Bombastus’s vegetable inventions work, and by taking a closer look at the images, he will find out the many stories that also take place in Bombastus’s village. In this book Iban Barrenetxea lets his imagination run lose, and creates hilarious situations that won’t leave you disappointed.
