The longest of the stories in this book is short, and the shortest is just a sentence long. Which means there are a lot of stories in here: a bumper bookful to make you laugh, shiver and think. Inside you’ll find stories about ghosts, supermarkets, animals, adventures – all kinds of things, with one thing in common: they’re all SHORT! By Carnegie Medal winner Kevin Crossley-Holland, these imaginative short stories on a huge range of themes prove that teeny-weeny tales can be full of big ideas. At a length that every reader will find accessible, they are a joy to dip into.
“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
