Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Another amazing flight of fancy from Toon Tellegen, consisting of one long and eight short stories.
Although its format suggests a children's story - small page size, large print, illustrations by Jessica Ahlberg - I think this works better for adults.
I did try it as a series of bed time stories for my daughter and she was interested, but it didn't really grab her - a little abstract for her tastes. It works brilliantly for me though as a distracting whimsy, and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys the nonsense verse of Edmund Lear and who still has a soft spot for talking animals and children's parties.
