One Hundred Thousand Some-Things
by Ryan Forbes

One Hundred Thousand Some-Things is a sweet story aimed at young children whose colourful imaginations will be sparked by the riotous adventures of the title characters—the Some-Things. There is every kind of Some-Thing you could imagine here: Some-Thing Smart and Some-Thing Big and Some-Thing Green and many more besides. And they are all around us, these magical, exuberant Some-Things—on our walls, in our beds, and even in our underwear drawers.

Presiding over them all is Sebastian, who finds himself the unwitting host to some one hundred thousand Some-Things when they descend upon his home and insist on having a party in his bedroom. Sebastian implores them to leave, but first agrees to help them bake a cake in his kitchen. Delightful chaos ensues.

In One Hundred Thousand Some-Things, kids will discover the thrill of imaginary worlds that are different from their own and infused with magic. That this one is filled with tiny, mischievous creatures makes the discovery more thrilling still.

At an early age in Oakbank, Manitoba, Ryan discovered his passion for writing, drawing and storytelling. He lives there today with his wife Candace and two sons, James and Sebastian. The ideas for Ryan’s stories have their beginnings and evolve during the bedtime ritual of imaginative storytelling to his boys. One Hundred Thousand Some-Things is one of their favourites.
