Gherkin Boy and the Dollar of Destiny
If you can find a weirder book, buy it. But also buy this one. Gherkin Boy is about a pickle that falls into a black hole and sets out on an adventure across the galaxy to get back home, aided by a lecherous fork, a homeless alien, and naked professor, and a criminal stick. It's hilarious, and weird, and a little bit of all right in your normal 9-5 world.
