Format: Paperback
This is my latest selection for the Alfiedog Readers Panel.

An interesting and varied collection of stories for children. In a collection by several different writers it's unlikely that anyone will like every story, but equally unlikely that someone won't find something (in this collection) to enjoy.

I've given four stars rather than five because of a few minor grammatical errors - I consider it especially important to avoid such errors in a book for children who may just be learning to read. Examples include:

lead being used as the past tense of lead (a common mistake - it's actually led)

"The colonel may well have perished that day" - we knew the colonel was alive, so it should read "might have"

a reference to penguins living in the Artic - wrong on two counts. The word is arctic, and penguins don't live there! They live in the southern hemisphere.

My final criticism concerns the story "Sugar on Snow". Writers are advised "Show, don't tell". There is a sentence in this story "Hickory, birch, oak or maple keep an even heat". Not only is the reader being told rather than shown, (s)he is being taken out of the story to be told.

Despite these criticisms, I recommend this book to parents looking for an interesting selection of short stories for their children.

As one of the authors, I'm reviewing the other great stories in this collection which is wonderfully rich and varied. The stories will appeal to children and parents alike, a very important factor when encouraging children to listen to stories: the adults should enjoy the experience as well. The colourful front cover will entice children to enter the magical world of the imagination. The perfect Christmas collection.

As one of the authors I am reviewing the others when I say this is a great bedtime/anytime read and at this time of year a fantastic stocking filler!

Like a book of recipes this collection of short stories has plenty of ingredients to spice up anyone's taste. There is plenty to digest... enjoy it!
