‘This is a true story because it happened to my great-grandfather’ is the beginning of ‘My Great-Grandfather’s Grave-digging’, one of fourteen highly unlikely and wonderfully readable tales. Some are funny, like ‘The Kettle’ and ‘Mrs Sugar’; some are sad, like ‘Lost Vanya’ and ‘The Troll Sister’; and one or two, like ‘The Headmaster’s Wife’ and ‘Feeding the Dog’, require a reader with strong nerves, but they will all keep you wondering what is going to happen up to the very last line.

All of our books that a have dust wrapper are covered in clear protective, removable film and are packed professionally in bubble wrap and a box for shipping so that they reach you in perfect condition.
