This book contains two stories: "Kit Kaleidoscope Goes to the Masked Ball" and "Kit Kaleidoscope and the Mermaid in the Jar". In "The Masked Ball," Kit stumbles upon an orgiastic party, but the revelers don't disturb her as much as a play that involves a seemingly young boy. In "The Mermaid in the Jar," Kit has a real job working in a graveyard, which brings her into contact with two brothers, one a recently deceased taxidermist and the other an idealistic sculptor. As an artist herself, Kit takes an interest in the sculptor, but the two have very different feelings about the meaning of art. Both stories are black-and-white and completely wordless.
