A second story, "Newton Fangle of New Sense," satirizes the contemporary fascinations with technology and newness, innovation and time-saving efficiency at the expense of the simpler, more aesthetic and leisurely pleasures of life. The title story, "The Boy Who Wanted to Marry His Dog," outlines in a comic way the passion of love and brave determination one can use to realize his or her dream.
