I read this when it was originally published and being Mike s daughter I had readheard some of these stories before I just re read it this week and I love it Yes I m a bit biased and some of the stories are about me so I get a little emotional reading some of them but regardless of the personal attachment these stories are wonderful Short sweet funny captivating No fluff but not boring I love the writing of Roald Dahl in that its simple but each story sucks you in and leaves you wanting Mike doesn t write disturbing stories like Dahl did if you haven t read Dahl s short stories for adults I highly recommend them but he is successful in doing the same thing reeling you in with every word and leaving you with either a smile on your face or a tear in your eye or maybe both Mike has perfected the art of capturing a moment and making you remember it forever even if it didn t personally happen to you I know I ll pick Wise Men up in a year and re read it and enjoy it just as much as when I originally read it You won t be disappointed Bimbo Invasion (English Edition) up in a year and re read it and enjoy it just as much as when I originally read it You won t be disappointed
