Everybody Sneezes and Sea Sponges Too!
The Environmental Journey of Santé Pristine
About the Book
Have you ever heard of the "Forbidden Fruit Effect" and how it relates to temptation, and choice? What if you happened upon essential nourishment that was forbidden? Inspired by sneezers across the globe, "Everybody Sneezes and Sea Sponges Too!" is a quirky story that features Santé Pristine, the most unlikely, daring, and vibrant character who defies all logic, especially after being confronted by the natural, but not so nice, environment. She uncovers and consumes the plant of "knowledge of good and evil" in the meadowlands.
Santé's journey is invigorating and infused with facts that demonstrate how the most careful individual can stumble upon what appears to be safe and nutritious. She finds herself investigating sneezing facts. However, Santé is consumed by reading so much research about other species, that she forgets about her own allergies. She questions nature's lack of gentleness.
