A brand new fantasy land born in Norway March 11 2012
By happygramps - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have recently purchased "A collection of short stories by Paul Birtles" What a super find and for once entirely original. The reason I bought it is that my grandchildren are six and five years old. When I am reading stories to them they unusual complete the sentences along with me which tells you something about the many repeats they appear to have endured. They know most stories off by heart and new material is hard to come by even though the illustrations may change a little the stories hardly ever do. Since kids bore easily particularly given the immense competition from techno stuff that they seem to master at a stroke I needed something special to catch their interest and I therefore searched the net for something that could excite their bright little minds. What ever it was, it needed to be short, a bit zany and essentially funny so I cant tell you how relieved I was when I discovered this collection of short stories beautifully published in a small easily held hard backed collection in poetry form with wonderful images that help the story extremely well. This author come illustrator is obviously bright as his writing is clever and original but he retains a simplicity in his poems that gives the stories a chance to connect. My grandkids loved them and have asked to hear them again as well as look at the pictures but I must admit I was much taken by the humor locked into most of the poems particularly one called "eat and eat" that hit a nerve in my case but it made us all howl laughing. I am sure many of these poems will be learnt off by heart by many kids as they cross the generation gap with considerable ease so many thanks to the Norwegian winters for apparently that is when this writer produces his work.
If it was left to my grandchildren they would have this writer permanently snowbound if they could get more stories as funny as those in this book. Cheers writer, for Grandpa is at last flavor of the week again!

I recently bought this lovely book for myself and my sisters. The poems were so interesting and different and the illustrations were just wonderful. I think it would make a great gift for any occasion.
