Oh my goodness, what an absolutely delightful read. I purchased this book thinking how great it would be to have a book of short stories. It would, I thought, allow me to read just a brief story and then put the book down for another time when I had, perhaps, only a short time span in which to indulge myself. Ha! I read it cover to cover and then read it aloud to my partner who found it a genuine treat.
Whether you read the stories over a longer period of time or simply go through it in one sitting, you will not regret a moment of the time spent. In fact, I have placed it in a safe place to be read again and again as I suspect you will too.

I am not one to like anthologies. I like to get to know the depth of the characters. That is my reason for the four stars. The stories were fun, easy for most folks to read and enjoy.
My favorites were The Old Woman which I felt showed how we all have biases that keeps us from enjoying people that don't fit within our own filters. We may be shorting ourselves from the gifts of a fuller life. And The other favorite was about the parrot. Too funny.

A really entertaining and well written compilation. With the always out of the ordinary(understatement, if there is one) characters and situations I'm getting used to expect from this imaginative author.
