The stories are very short – less than 400 words each. Some are reminiscent of the magical stories from days gone by – the Wirra Wirra Bird that sets the kitchen utensils dancing, the Humptee Umbrella that bothers Quarkum the witch. Others are more contemporary – I can’t find any socks and Charlie Forever tell stories of everyday children.Barbara Dobson – Reading Time
Rainbow Jackets is a lively collection of short stories, it is visually appealing and a great read for seven to 10 year olds.The Sunday Times, Chill Out
