Description: "A mother gives her two children five cherries each. One is excited; the other a little disappointed. Only five cherries? But wait, says the first. Let's pretend I eat them all at once. Let's pretend I don't, says the other. Let's pretend I cure my patients with special medicine. Let's pretend I'm a jester and make people laugh. One is a girl, one a boy, but they become hard to identify as the game goes on and their play becomes deeper and more revealing."--Amazon.
