One of these stories is as short as a fleeting thought, another seeks to explain God's gift to man of four score years and ten...In stories as short as these, the love between parent and child, siblings, friends and within communities is a melody, and the point at which the reader shares this intimacy is the unique note. A book to think about for the 9-plus reader. (The School Librarian)

These short,short stories are perfect for shy and reluctant readers, especially as they can see the end from the beginning!!
They are well written and thought provoking.
There are a variety of story types, some are funny, some scarey. The scarey ones were the most popular! I really enjoyed it and recommend this book.
