Perhaps because I know the author and can hear him speaking as I read these stories and perhaps because I've had a wee crush on him since I met him a while back, there may be a touch of bias in my opinion of this fantastic little book. That being said, it really is a fantastic little book, full of wonderful life and adventure as well as some crushing reality. Well done Dermot!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be lending it to all my fellow book lovers to enjoy as well!!!
