Interview with the author:

Pearl: One boy has two stomachs and he’s older.  The boy has two stomachs because he’s older.
Kate: Do we all grow two stomachs when we get older?
Pearl: No, you just grow a bigger one.  I meant twice the one stomach’s size.  But I just wanted to put “two stomachs” instead of “big stomach”.  ‘Cos two stomachs is interestinger.
