McCall Smith, Alexander. Tiny Tales: Stories of Romance, Ambition, Kindness, and Happiness. digital. 2021. Recorded Books.
From the bestselling author of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency comes a collection of short tales that will delight readers with their wit, absurdity, and delight. From a pope wanting to visit his native country of Australia to a woman looking to meet people skydiving to four dentists going on vacation together (with disastrous results); the breadth and scope of these stories will amuse and engage listeners. Thirty tiny tales are broken into sections on love, revenge, kindness, strangeness, and other manners of emotion. These brief stories are brought to life in inventive and amusing ways by a trio of narrators. Narrated beautifully by Brian Nishii, Jamie Jackson, and Robert Ian Mackenzie; all of whom voice cleverness, banter, and hilarity with every breath. As Aesop said, "good things come in small packages" and this oddly unique collection is certainly proof of that. - Erin Cataldi, Johnson Co. Public Library, Franklin, IN
