Inhaltsangabe zu „George's Odd Socks: Bombyx Mori Magic Series Book One“ von Finn Pistonelli

If you’re the sort of person who likes to squish-squash worms flat with your shoe when they have lost their way from the lawn and have accidentally wriggled onto the pavement in a lost-wormy type of way, then this is not the book for you. If you’re the sort of person who laughs when a puppy yelps when somebody mistakenly tramples onto one of their cute, furry little paws, then this is definitely not the book for you. And if you’re the sort of person who likes to catch beautiful butterflies in a floppy net and then stick pins into them in a horrible way rather than just let them fly past in a floating-flutterby-butterfly sort of way, then this is absolutely, definitely not the book for you. However, if you’re the sort of person who stops and looks down at a stranded wriggly worm and thinks about carefully picking up that worm and putting it back onto the lawn, even if it means holding a twig to do so because you don’t want your hands to get gooey in a gooey-wormy sort of way, then this just may be the book for you. If you never laugh at poor-puppy dog yelps, nor do you feel the need to stick pins into beautiful butterflies, then yes, this is the book you just might enjoy. And if you like to believe that yes, there is something magical how a silkworm can grow into a moth, in a magical silkwormy-mothy sort of way, then this is absolutely, definitely the book you have been looking for. Some people don’t even smile when pretty rainbows appear in the sky. Some people never look at the amazing things that Nature gives us and would rather just lie on a beach in the sun rather than explore rock-pools to see what exciting creatures live under the water. Some people say that magic doesn’t exist. But that’s not you, is it? It might even have been a little bit of magic that brought you to this page…. Whilst researching this book I happened across the amazing life-cycle of Bombyx mori, the silkworm of the mulberry tree. The more I read, the more I became fascinated by these wonderful creatures. Over the last five thousand years domestic silk worms have become so closely dependent on the silk weavers that look after them, they would now struggle to survive without their help. It is sadly true that a lot of silkworms are not allowed to grow within the cocoons into moths and the silk is collected in ways that I would rather not mention. However, it is also true that there are some silk weavers in this world who are very happy to allow the silkworms to grow into beautiful moths. These kind silk weavers are delighted with the beautiful silk that is produced in this silkworm-friendly sort of way. As I thought about the Bombyx mori silkworms, I wondered about the magic of it all, the way that Nature gives us so many amazing things. I thought about the silk that was made in such a peaceful way, surely such silk must be special in ways we perhaps don’t realise? The George in our story has a very special socks made of silk and perhaps just one or two other materials, even special socks need mending.......He just never realised how special they were until they told him one day that they were made of magical silkworm-friendly silk....
