Young Randolph has two favorite pastimes - hockey and collecting. He collects both the ordinary (beer bottle caps) and the esoteric (new words). After his father loses his job, Randolph is horrified to learn the family must take in Mr. Karp, a boarder. Even worse, Mr. Karp is a collector too. He receives large wooden crates marked "Fragile" and "Perishable" and subscribes to a curious newsletter called The Drip. As it happens, Mr. Karp collects water Young Randolph has two favorite pastimes - hockey and collecting. He collects both the ordinary (beer bottle caps) and the esoteric (new words). After his father loses his job, Randolph is horrified to learn the family must take in Mr. Karp, a boarder. Even worse, Mr. Karp is a collector too. He receives large wooden crates marked "Fragile" and "Perishable" and subscribes to a curious newsletter called The Drip. As it happens, Mr. Karp collects water - he keeps samples in glass containers, each carefully labeled: "Pitcher used by Benito Mussolini to throw water in face of army private during tantrum, 1941." Randolph is astonished to learn there are many other water collectors, with websites, conventions, and a central association that oversees the authenticity of samples. This hobby, Randolph discovers, is so cut-throat that Mr. Karp will do anything to beat out a rival named Mr. Ravelson for a unique sample of melted snow taken from the upturned hat of Napoleon during the Russian Campaign. What will happen if Mr. Karp doesn't get his precious sample? Even Randolph is surprised at the consequences! Fagan's wonderfully whimsical prose and Selçuk Demirel's breezy line drawings make this an unforgettable read.

Young Randolph has two favorite pastimes -- hockey and collecting. When his family rents out part of their house, Mr. Karp takes over two rooms on the third floor, and Randolph soon learns that the new boarder is a collector too.It turns out that Mr. Karp collects water -- samples that he keeps in glass containers, each one carefully labeled: Ditch water from St. Louis, Missouri, after the tornado of 1896. Pitcher used by Benito Mussolini to throw water in face of army private during tantrum, 1941. Randolph is astonished to learn that Mr. Karp is just one of many water collectors, and the only thing preventing him from being the foremost water collector in his region is a rival named Ravelson. To beat Ravelson, Mr. Karp heads to Japan to obtain a unique sample -- melted snow taken from the upturned hat of Napoleon Bonaparte during the Russian campaign.
