Publisher's Summary

Stare if you dare, into Paul Jennings' wild world. What happens when you grow younger? Where do ghosts sit their exams? How would you cope if a million birds did it on you? Where did the eyes in the bottle come from?
Nine stories that you would never dream of. From one of Australia's most popular authors.


Audible Editor Reviews

This collection of nine short stories from acclaimed Australian children's author Paul Jennings is full of tales kids will love but adults would never believe: magical age-adjusting devices, dragons in drains, ghosts taking exams, and more. Jennings' protagonists are sensitive, likable, and always trying to do the right thing. Some of the themes might scare younger readers, but older children will love the strange situations, and performer Stig Wemyss does a fantastic job of creating unique voices for each character, from the ghoulish to the whimsical.

Marred by lazy chapter markers

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Perfectly narrated.

Any additional comments?

The major issue is that the audiobook has 4 fairly randomly placed chapter markers, probably from the original audiotape release. This makes trying to watch a specific short story REALLY annoying!
