Charles Fudgemuffin is the author of the critically acclaimed 'Remember to put the bins out' note. Other less notable works include the alien comedy 'How To Save The World' books, and the free short story 'Small Pots Also Have Ears'.
If you're looking for a very formal 'True Or False' book written in an informative style similar to that found in an encyclopedia, then this probably isn't the book for you. One or two serious general knowledge facts may have slipped past the quality control department, but on the whole I've tried to keep things light-hearted first, and educational second.
‘Small Pots Also have Ears’ is a very short ‘slice of life’ story, so if you’re looking for an action filled epic adventure, then it’s probably not for you. However, if you fancy a short light-hearted tale about everyday regular life, then here it is...
Aliens from the planet Fem have decided that as compassionate citizens of the galaxy they have a duty to alleviate suffering and affliction from the rest of the galaxy.

I have to admit I wasn't quite expecting this short story to end like it did, but overall this was an enjoyable read which captured the fact that everything in the world is exciting when you're a kid. If you're looking for an action packed dramatic adventure then this isn't for you, but if you're looking for a quick snapshot of family life then The Butterfly Effect provides an enjoyable ten minutes or so of reading entertainment.
Promise You Won't Tell features lots of dialogue which appeals to my reading preferences, and it's a definite page turner with several twists and turns as the plot develops. However, after initially coming up with many clever ideas, at the very end the point of believability gets pushed too far. Nevertheless, despite the unbelievable ending this was still an enjoyable book, but it could have been even better if it had featured a more realistic conclusion.
