A fun and quirky cautionary tale about thinking too little and talking too muchWhat is wrong with the wobbegong? Anything? Nothing? Who can tell, when he never says a word. This witty and elegant story is centered around the idea that we never really know what motivates other people, and that we would be wise to keep our thoughtless comments to ourselves.
