A humorously dark fairy tale of witchcraft, bullying, revenge, and a mysterious bowler hat. Ron Sexsmith takes the visual way with words usually showcased in his award-winning music and brings it to this whimsical yet serious story about a boy who finds out what happens when you kill a dog that belongs to a witch.
