 Praise for Joan Aiken’s stories
A consummate story-teller. — 
The Times 
“With its fne-tuned combination o olklore and un, is a good source o imaginative tales to read alone or aloud.” — 
Booklist 
“Whether scary, satiric, or poetic, Aiken’s tales have strong settings,memorable characters, insight, and humor.” — 
School Library Journal 
“You can never quite be sure where an Aiken story will end up; you canonly be sure that the journey will be worthwhile. . . . The Armitage storiesare, once again, charming and quirky. Some o them veer into slightly seri-ous territory, but mostly they’re Aiken having un. Harriet and Mark alsohave un in these stories, and readers will too.”— 
Strange Horizons 
“The best kind o writer, strange and spooky and surprising, neversentimental or whimsical.”—Kelly Link (
