This collection of tales had me laughing and crying - occasionally at the same time!

The passion that has gone into this book is obvious and the shorts are both insightful into the authors mind and the world they long to live in.

The quality of the print and manafacture is superior allowing the illistrations to be fully appreciated for what they are - snippets of fine art further further adding to the prose.
