5.0 out of 5 stars Never disapoints 20 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've only read a few stories from the book, but enough to recommend it. His stories are poignant but not overly sad. The stories are short and easy to engage with quickly. I think this book would be something to keep for years and pull off the shelf in lots of different situations, whether reading to other kids besides your own or for holidays.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read for relaxation 30 Jan 2014
By Ronald P. Ng - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lots of interesting short stories, mainly for children, but an adult can enjoy them full. The stories are full of human touches. Highly recommended if you want very short stories where each story could be finished in about half an hour.
