It begins, as so many of these stories do, with a knock at the door. A young couple discovers a cardboard baby on their stoop. They grow to love the child, who is completely flat, as their own. Then someone or something takes away the baby to a FlatWorld, a planar landscape populated by characters whimsical, sinister, and flat as pancakes. The couple, both ordinary and round, must enter this two-dimensional world to get their baby back. Can they rescue their adopted child and escape from a parallel universe in which there is up-and-down and side-to-side, but no way out?

In the spirit of The Phantom Tollbooth and Spirited Away, Cankerblossom invites you into a hidden, magical world that once you enter has no intention of letting you leave.
