Pub. Date:
A boy who doesn't want to be sad tries eliminating all sources of sadness from his life, including toys (they can get broken), pets (they can't live forever), friends (what if they don't call?), even his own family (sometimes they get mad at him). Ultimately, he realizes that all sources of sadness are also his sources of happiness, and he reclaims them all.
