About the Book

This collection of rhyming stories will suit anyone over ten years old with a fondness for reading and a sophisticated vocabulary. These stories are full of subtle humour. They  deal with believable human characters in slightly outlandish settings, having adventures that stretch the imagination...ever so slightly!

Here you will find no dark magical empires, and no introspections about the problems of today. This is just good clean fun. Scary? No! Cheeky: yes! The  focus here is on leaving the reader amused and amazed, and feeling good about the fun there is to be found in life.

This particular collection of stories was meant for ages 10 to 15. But many adults have enjoyed them so much they came back to the author to buy more copies of the book for their friends.
