Publisher's Summary

An enjoyable collection of 21 short stories that will make you smile, wonder about human nature and stifle a giggle. From the absurd to the thought provoking, the past to the present, this eclectic anthology of original tales takes an irreverent look at life, pokes a stick at officialdom, and explores the daft side of our existence. Such as:

  • "Tom Wellies takes a Bath" - A gentle story involving a length of string, a pair of Wellington boots and boundless optimism.
  • "A Walk in the Woods" - It starts in the present but becomes a mystical journey into the past.
  • "I Blame Spud" - A tale with a twist of a night out, a train ride and unexpected consequences.
  • "The Boy in the Picture" - The narrative of a growing child with an ancient aunt and a photograph above the fireplace.

And more:

  • "The Man Who Never Was" - The saga of an imaginary character made so famous that his obituary made the news.
  • "The Mart" - Carwyn and Jean go shopping but do they buy Thomas the Turkey or will they escape the brutish bird.
  • "Scrumpy" - An adventure that begins with a wheelbarrow full of apples. What could possibly go wrong?
  • "The Reckoning" - A diary, a year goes past before an annual accounting; Victorian life laid bare.
  • "A Quiet Time in Carmarthenshire" - He booked the holiday cottage; to escape and relax, away from his manic life. It was the picture of the dog lounging in the road that clinched it.

These are just a few of the stories told in this compendium of tales.
