Seven Simple and
Slightly Silly Stories
An abandoned cat helps a lonely mouse. A family of ants moves to safer ground. A cockroach befriends a human. Straightforward? Of course - if it weren't for some surprising turns along the way. But even they're as nothing to the twist in the tale when Death comes knocking, or the mayhem in the washtub when an outraged shirt confronts a social-climbing Argyle sock. In this unique, quirky and darkly witty collection of seven fables for young and old alike, anything can happen. And it certainly does - with unexpected and often poignant consequences!

Another Seven Simple
and Slightly Silly Stories
While a little learning goes a long, long way, it's not necessarily in the right direction - as Sid Christmas found to his cost in 'The Wisdom of Teaching Reindeer to Read', one of the fables in this follow-up to Seven Simple and Slightly Silly Stories. Among others in this new collection for the young at heart aged 10 to 110, discover the wasp who thought too little of himself and the puddle who thought too much, the magnificent squirlybird whose like will never be seen again, and the tale of a once-fashionable lift whose final thoughts turn to revenge.
