Sometimes, when a story is reaching what should be the absolute best part, the whole thing just falls apart. The ending can be too complicated, too sad, or too catastrophic. That’s why our narrator has a plan to change the way things end. And make sure they finish at just the right time, in just the right way.

The Endfixer by Noemi Vola celebrates the joy of storytelling and the endless possibilities of the imagination.

"This tongue-in-cheek picture book celebrates the creation—and the conclusions—of stories. The unnamed narrator describes their childhood desire to be an endfixer, “someone who fixes the ends of stories” because some endings are “too complicated,” “too censored,” or just plain “too long.” The illustrations are humorous and whimsical, as with a newlywed worm couple kissing in the window of an apple carriage to accompany “too mushy.” In the end, the narrator determines there is no end at all—to stories or our imaginations."
