Editorial Reviews

Review

A delightfully light-hearted variety of stories, articles, limericks, and even a quiz to see how good a passenger you are. This is a great, pocket-sized book to keep with you whilst travelling, and a perfect gift for someone who is going on a trip. --Write Now Magazine

If you've ever found yourself stranded on an aeroplane with nothing to read, then this book has provided the answer. It is a collection of previously published pieces and promises to keep the reader entertained. It is a compilation of humorous articles, short stories, plus a quiz, agony aunt column and a collection of malapropisms in book form to keep passengers amused. One of the short stories ;Family Ties was included in an anthology published by Cheshire Academic Press, University of Chester, UK. --Berea News Durban

It would make a perfect travelling and holiday companion. The quirky short stories - some a little naughty - might well prove the book's strong point. But I took a fancy to the word play, especially the collection of malaprospisms - the accidental misuse of words - which I'm sure you'll figure out without the explanations that the book gives. --The Idler, The Mercury Newspaper --This text refers to the paperback edition.
