Lucky lipsticks that have you kissing animals; ice cream that can help rid you of spots; even cow dung custard – all of the above are present in Paul Jenning’s wonderful cornucopia of quirky short tales. Be warned, some stories have a ghostly edge… .I distinctly recall at least one skeleton on a dunny! Jennings’ stories are just plain hilarious for young readers, and his whimsical tales offer more twists than a ride on a rollercoaster.
