A boy wins $100,000 in a box of Frosted Flakes - only to discover that claiming the winnings may unravel his family.

An acclaimed ambulance driver seeks the courage to follow his heart and throw it all away to be a singer-songwriter.

A school principal unveils a bold plan to permanently abolish arithmetic.

A new arrival in heaven, overwhelmed by infinite options, procrastinates over his long-ago promise to visit his grandmother.

We meet a vengeance-minded hare. We learn why wearing a red T-shirt is the key to finding love; how February got its name; and why the stock market is sometimes just . . . down. Finding inspiration in questions from the nature of perfection to the icing on carrot cake, from the deeply familiar to the intoxicatingly imaginative, ONE MORE THING finds its heart in the most human of phenomena: love, fear, family, ambition, and the inner stirring for the one elusive element that might make a person complete.

The stories in this collection are like nothing else, but they have one thing in common: they share the playful humour, deep heart, inquisitive mind, and altogether electrifying spirit of a writer with a fierce devotion to the entertainment of the reader.
