Praise for Short! 'Each [story is] a masterpiece of brevity and narrative skill' (Carousel)
. . . this is a brilliant book . . . (TES)
. . . an espresso-cup collection which condenses the author's distinguished career as a reteller of folk-tales into bite-sized fables with a strong after-taste effect. (Literary Review)
Praise for Kevin Crossley-Holland 'Crossley-Holland retells old folk tales better than anyone else alive.' (Lynn Gardner, The Guardian)
Praise for The Seeing Stone '...as bright and as vivid as pictures in a Book of Hours. Deep scholarship, high imagination, and great gifts of storytelling have gone into this; I was spellbound.' (Philip Pullman (Guardian Children's Book Supplement))

Many are similar to other stories that have appeared over the years but this collection brings them together and others are completely original. Who could fail to feel a brief breeze of unease when they read "Nightmare" or laugh out loud when they read "Hairy"?
The stories are so enjoyable that I know a teacher who has purchased this latest tome as this former literacy coordinator wants to complete their collection and to enjoy these yarns, even though they have no class of students to share them with anymore!
