King Albert's Words of Advice

And Other Extraordinary Stories
A collection of stories by

Put down that blockbuster novel, 500 pages long, and pick up instead this collection of short stories by a master of the storyteller's art; for these seven tales will provide you with much more fun and enjoyment in half the time.

In these pages you will meet King Albert, who has a harem of 500 wives, and serious problems in keeping them all happy; then there's a young lady whose Granny asks her to sleep with a ghost; Budgie Bill, who prefers a feathered bird to the charms of Miss Samantha Ramsbottom; and a host of other engaging characters.

This box of narrative delights will generate a variety of emotions: amusement, sadness, astonishment, dismay, and delightful irony; all different and yet all satisfying.

Readers who have enjoyed the work of such famed short-story practitioners as Saki, Somerset Maugham, and Roald Dahl, will find here much to entertain them.

Several of the stories in this collection have been published individually.
