Review of "Silly Stories," by Andy Charman

Review of

Silly Stories, by Andy Charman et. al. ISBN 075255672x

Five out of five stars

 This is a wonderful collection of stories that do justice to the title. Since they require some knowledge of the world and how it works in order for the reader to understand where the silliness applies, they are primarily for children to read rather than have them read to them. Yet, that would work as well, and the stories are naturals to have the adult reader include intonation changes for emphasis.

 While a few of the stories use some of the previously used themes, most of them are quite different from the familiar style of fairy tales. If you are looking for a set of fairy tales with a bit of imagination that bounces a bit sideways, then this is a book that will satisfy that craving.
