Award-winning author, Kevin Crossley-Holland, presents a collection of stories where even the longest story is very short. The longest story in this collection is very short and the shortest just three words long. A wonderful mix of the best short stories. Some are old, some are new, some are scary, some are funny, but all the stories in this book will make you think. There's Tarvaa and the terrible plague, a bagful of butterflies, ghostly tales from the beyond the grave, and the short life of Barbara the Lamb Who Froze to Death.
