A generous and eclectic collection of stories and poems which will be enjoyed by sixes to nines. Collections for dipping into are still rare for novice readers; this will be welcome for storytelling sessions, too. Highlights for my seven and eight-year-old co-readers were Alan Garner's wonderfully economical retelling of The Little Red Hen and Diana Wynne Jones' The Thing which shows how a gifted writer can work well within the short story form. With some Milligan poems and a couple of Helen Cresswell stories amidst much else, this one's a winner.
