    This collection of short stories nominally for children is exactly what you would expect short stories by Joan Aiken to be remarkable, unexpected and all imbued with a least a hist of the strange and weird Some moving and gentle others with a edge of the sinister and scary all with at least some totally unexpected elements that rock your expectations on their heels and make you reevaluate the world view of the story you are reading The best might make you reevaluate your own real world at least a little.I have a long standing fondness for Joan Aiken and her own special brands of strange and weird, so I enjoyed these stories, short enough to chew through one or two while waiting for a bus or filling in time on a tea break I am uncertain about their target audience however, the collection is definitely marketed as children s fiction and it was written in the 90 s which is not THAT long ago However I am not certain that all children would warm to them Ones who liked mythic stories, perhaps, but as a child I would have found them unsatisfying since I had a fondness for explanations and many of these stories leave the reader with a big sign floating around in their mind.

    I ve read these stories so many times since I was a little girl I still think sometimes about the Ike pour hot water on it , the petticoat palm and the barmkins Aiken was among my favourite authors as a child, and rediscovering her work as an adult is a joy.
