In 1990 my brother, Robert Chaplin, challenged me to write something about Turnips. This story remained in a filing cabinet until April 9, 2007 when it was finally published as a work of fine art, by Robert Chaplin at the Nano Imaging Facility of Simon FraserUniversity. This book, complete with an International Standard Book Number (ISBN-978-1-894897-17-4), is entitled ‘Teeny Ted From Turnip Town’. It is a fable concerning the success of Teeny Ted, from Turnip Town, and his victory in the Turnip contest at the annual county fair.
It is at present the world’s smallest published book.
