Setting the bar for bedtime with wonderfully rich stories

Delightful trip into the land of make believe, Neil Roy McFarlane has created a collection of wonderful, creative, and silly trips into the imagination. Each story is about 20 to 30 minutes long, filled with humor for the adults and just the right amount of absurdity for any child to enjoy. Reminiscent of the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie type of tale, each one starts with remembering a mundane occurrence that happened during the day, like eating bangers and mash ( sausage and potatoes), that led to something strange, which cause another thing to happen and on and on, deeper into the land of cause and effect, leading to a whopping story brilliantly relayed of how the reader ended back in bed. Written with a great love of vocabulary, with a musical style, I thing this book is not a month of bedtime stories, but a lifetime of them.

Happy Reading!
