Reviews

  • ‘Each [story is] a masterpiece of brevity and narrative skill’

    Carousel

  • '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.'

    School Librarian

  • ‘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.’
