Suspenseful, sensory, wonderful!

What a fantastic short story. I absolutely loved it. The performance complimented the narrative so well. Each description, sight, smell and sound was a delight. Children 7+ would definitely enjoy this book.

It gets pretty weird.

It starts whimsically odd, then builds more of a world around it. By the last story it's absolutely off its rocker, yet still with whimsy.

a childhood favourite

I loved this book as a kid, and it's a delight to hear it read by the author.

short but sweet

I really enjoyed the story, the descriptions really come alive in your mind but I would have liked it to be longer. Maybe a collection of stories would be better value.
