" It was an OK book. I don't see how it's s'posed to be sad but still a good book to read. Simple, sweet, perculiar in parts " said.

" The stories are touching and will reach deep feelings as soon as one starts reading them. The best are the chapters where Michael Morpurgo shares his life as a writer and how he changed his style as he got older. " said.

" With each individual piece in this book you see similarities between all characters. You are able to relate and quickly find yourself reeled in on an emotional roller coster right next to the characters. " said.

" A charming little book. The stories are not exceptional, but it is interesting to read the in-between chapters where the story-teller talks about his journey and inspirations. I liked some of these sections much more than the actual short stories, though I found some of those very well done. " said.

" This is the kind of book that cozily invites you in and embraces you. The short stories are beautiful, and the alternating chapters where Morpugo describes how he arrive at the stories are as inspiring as Rilke. Perfect rainy day company along with a blanket and a cup of tea. " said.

" Although I am not usually a fan of short stories, this collection held my attention from beginning to end. It contains reflections by the author which explain his motive for writing, how he gathers his ideas, and what he hopes to achieve through storytelling. Certainly, he has an amazing gift and can create pictures with words in a way that is both memorable and moving. " said.

" I loved this book. It wove seamlessly between the author's reflections and his stories. All with a depth of feeling, joy for life, and recognition of difficult passages even children go through. I am ready to read more of his stories, and was encouraged in writing by his thoughts. Lovely, simple, profound. " said.

" I've read it so many times before that this time I could still remember what happened. It's not as profound re-reading it the 20th time but you still get the feeling of the powerful words and feelings behind the stories.My favorites are the giant's necklace, my father is a polar bear, and the mozart question. " said.
