This is a collection of 25 short stories that have been specifically chosen to appeal to 6 year olds. A very old ghost, an accident-prone cousin, a pirate in search of a ship, fish fingers for breakfast, a dog who loves football, hairy armadillos, aliens in pyjamas, a boy in trouble, a big brother who can fix anything, secret creatures in the playground and an unexpected escape for Gibblewort the Goblinare some of the stories you’ll find inside. The authors are a mix of well-known and unfamiliar names that include Margaret Mahy, Patricia Grace, and David Hill.

This will be enjoyed by those who like to be read to or can read themselves. My tester is a slow reader and not very confident but she enjoyed reading these out loud to her little sister every night. She liked the shortness of the stories and though ‘they were all cool’. The perfect gift for 6 year olds!
