This small (palm-sized) book of short tales in large print is just as it appears. Generally, 3-14 pages long, these very short stories encompass a variety of themes. The stories are entertaining, clever, and sometimes witty. They also reflect the author’s British roots. Simple and endearing, this book of tales can provide perfect filler reading material. This is the ideal collection of stories to read while waiting in the doctor’s office or riding the train. These tales are meant to be read and reread. There are also 30 witty cartoons (amuse-bouche) …appetizers of sorts that provide graphic reading entertainment. These were designed by Iain McIntosh, McCall Smiths longtime creative collaborator.
This curious little book includes stories of romance, ambition, kindness, and happiness.
