Where Sheep May Safely Graze

Rated 3.00/5 based on 2 reviews
The cat stared up at him as though it knew all about the entry and he was being tiresome about it. Then it proceeded to have a bath, the kind of cello-playing bath one feels obliged to look away from unless one knows the cat well.

A collection of short (some very short) stories and poems, mostly about New Zealand, or cats, or sheep.

About Roger Parkinson

Roger Parkinson is an author by night and a software consultant by day, although sometimes the two are reversed. He lives with his wife (high school sweetheart) and four sheep in New Zealand in an earth brick house that looks like a Romanesque Abbey (lots of arched windows). He built most of the furniture for the house himself and so far only one piece has collapsed.
Apart from writing books he dabbles in electronics, gardening, kayaking, hiking and growing his hair.

These are our sheep having fun.
They've just had a feed of fresh new grass and this is a 'romp'. Nothing is chasing them, they are running for joy. Safely grazing, indeed. The view is from our kitchen window.

Nothing much here.
I read this because I had read and enjoyed "Summon Your Dragons" but this collection offers nothing.

The stories are all dull; they are well written but not even slightly interesting.
Even free it isn't worth getting.

From the first page I found this writing beautiful and captivating. Roger Parkinson is the very best kind of gentle, humorous and interesting story teller, and this short collection is a real treat. Also there is good variety here so that although the pace of the collection is consistent and easy on the reader, the writing draws you seamlessly from one mood to another. Great visual imagery, great voice . . . more please.
