The stories were all very cute, and I thought that the lessons they shared were valuable. My only complaint was that the collection was described as being very fantastical and larger-than-life. While there were some sci-fi and fantasy elements, it was not quite what I was expecting based off of the description. Having said that, I still enjoyed these short stories a lot.

Wonderful collection of short stories that seem simultaneously modern and ancient.

Engaging, whimsical yet very thought-provoking.

Great for encouraging reluctant readers due to the short length and story appeal.

I won this book from the Goodreads First Reads program.

A children's book of short stories influenced by Twilight Zone. Some are out there, some funny but most with a positive message to get across in the end.
