Short (series) by Kevin Crossley-Holland

The longest of the stories in these books is short, and the shortest is just one sentence long. Which means there are lots of stories: whole bookfuls to make you think, laugh, shiver, and think again. Each book contains over forty stories. These are a short and sharp collection of funny, intriguing, and scary stories.

Fantastic 5 minute fillers – or conversation starters.
