Read full description of the books:



Here the only mysterious element of the unexplained is, why so many people seem to remember this book with fondness? Coming to it for the first time as an adult I found it stultifying – only three of the pieces work, several are eminently guessable at the halfway mark, and a lot just don't work. Mostly this is down to a blatant curtness, that only works with the dead-pan tale of a man kicking a skull along the road (as you do). The blatant curtness comes down to the author being an awful children's writer – whatever her prowess at anthologising folktales, and being a Grimm-type story gatherer, so much of what she writes is just a single page in length, and has no room to create any effect. To such an extent I am literally surprised how children could be expected to enjoy this stuff, let alone their adult equivalents. Completely unsatisfying.

FINLAY

Why are you asking for a phone number?

SEBASTIAN

Best among ordinary

SCARLETT

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

TYLER

Compelling book!

SARAH

Light fiction for Cloudy day
