Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This paperback collection of twenty-four short stories ranges from the familiar, traditional "Teeny-Tiny" by Joseph Jacobs to a contemporary, cumulative tale by James Reeves called "The Cat and the Mouse." Most of them are only three or four pages long, which make them ideal for reading aloud when a brief activity is needed. Highlighting each story are high-spirited, black-and-white drawings on almost every page. This is an added bonus for older children able to read by themselves. They will surely enjoy seeing a prince with donkey ears growing out of his head or a mailman doing loop the loops in his helicopter as he delivers the mail. The number 19 on the spine indicates that is the latest in the "Kingfisher Treasury Series." Some of the other available titles are illustrated on the front inside cover. While not an essential purchase, it does provide an answer to those in need of a four or five minute classroom break. 2004 (orig. 1992), Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin, Ages 5 to 8.

    Fun, imaginative stories to read over and over

    All the Kingfisher Treasuries of stories are excellent, It is a pleasure to read such well written and imaginative stories. We wore the pages out of the collections for 4 and 5 year olds. This collection is as good. Any parent that has suffered the mass market paperbacks about rainbow fairies etc will find this a breath of fresh air. By selecting stories from many talented writers, there is a nice variety of styles of writing. The common theme of these stories is that they are truly original and imaginative and after reading them kids really think about the possibilities within the stories.
