Award-winning author, Kevin Crossley-Holland, follows the success of Short, with Short Too!, an inspirational collection for short story writers where even the longest story is very short. A wonderful mix of the best short stories. Some are old, some are new, some are scary, some are funny, but all the stories in this book will make you think. There's Tarvaa and the terrible plague, a bagful of butterflies, ghostly tales from the beyond the grave, and the short life of Barbara the Lamb Who Froze to Death. Baa! Brr! Ahh!

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Short! 'Each [story is] a masterpiece of brevity and narrative skill' * Carousel *
. . . this is a brilliant book . . . * TES *
. . . an espresso-cup collection which condenses the author's distinguished career as a reteller of folk-tales into bite-sized fables with a strong after-taste effect. * Literary Review *
Praise for Kevin Crossley-Holland 'Crossley-Holland retells old folk tales better than anyone else alive.' * Lynn Gardner, The Guardian *
Praise for The Seeing Stone '...as bright and as vivid as pictures in a Book of Hours. Deep scholarship, high imagination, and great gifts of storytelling have gone into this; I was spellbound.' * Philip Pullman (Guardian Children's Book Supplement) *
