Barry T. Martin’s book of short stories will make anyone laugh and cry. Martin is very creative and whimsical. Some of his stories could have been told to his grandchildren, but all of them are fun for young and old alike. He has a gift for imagery and you can see the stories come to life in your mind. You can’t help but smile at some images, like the model village when the people get rearranged for a more interesting story. I hope that he keeps on writing and pleasuring the world with his stories.
