Had a great time listening to these stories while on trips with the whole family. Charming tales with a lot of humanity in there. Good lessons to learn from these. Thanks Mom for sending it to us.

Meh. I should have picked up Phillip K Dick's "Ubik" like I wanted to, but instead got this and am just as disappointed in my decision as one would expect me to be. Skip it.
