With this collection of eleven stories Tinti has set out to play chilling mind games with her readers and she has certainly succeeded. These are out and out shock horrors and extremely imaginatively written. Each tale is weirdly wonderful but grotesque and will chill you to the bone. Unbalanced adults and children feature in these disturbing tales and will cause you to wonder how well you really know the people around you. Hints of Animal Farm, Dr Dolittle and Life of Pi litter these stories, but take heed - they are not to be recommended to animal lovers!

A good collection of intriguing and disturbing stories. Out of the stories there were two I thought were dull and unintersting but having enjoyed nine out of the eleven I was pleased to have read them. Animals were a tenuous link for one of the stories but other than this it was an enjoyable few hours of reading. I read a story a night, spreading out the entertainment. I'd happily seek out other work by this author and would be interested to see if she could maintain the quality of writing over a novel as opposed to short stories.
