Why does the Wool Pooh have rectangular toes? This question is killing me!

Julian The reason he has rectangular/square toes is because he is a fictional character and not real. The author just wanted to add something interesting in the book so he made up the wool pooh, and how it was drowning Kenny and Byron fought it away, was just for a hook, because nothing that interesting happened in the book, and they didn't want to go to happy-go-lucky Birmingham, to a church being bombed. He just decided to go with rectangle toes as some extra detail. This is fictional because if the wool pooh has gills, he can't have been part of the church bombing. If he was part of it, like Kenny said, he would have been arrested and died in prison
