Is it true? He wrote these stories?
Each story has something in it for most people, he's captured the scene and once you're inside, he's captured you. You must join in with the story, to sit at the side peering in is not good - you might end up a casualty; don't get too close though, it is dangerous, I know. This is a must read, whether you are on a train or a plane, in a boat or a bath the story has some real adventures, some so very relevant. I went to school at 3½ years old, was taught to read at 4 years old. To slip away into a world full of imagination has always been fun and made me love words written by others who held my hand and took me on an adventure. Reading everything possible just fuelled my imagination, it did not concern me what it was, it was brain food. Now it's my turn to try and take the reader by the hand and hope that I can help them imagine themselves as one of my characters in the story. Now retired and living in the Loire Vallee, there is more time to fuel the brain and enjoy what I like doing best.
