We received this collection in exchange for our honest unpaid opinion. I will start off with this: everyone will find a favorite story. Eleven stories is no small feat and I am impressed with more than one. Of course I found two I was less thrilled to be reading but that’s still great odds. One in particular was very slow getting started and I was not able to connect with the characters at all. So pass over those two and we still have NINE stories I feel are well worth the read. My middle son loves this genre and enjoyed reading each of the books with no complaint. Overall this is a great collection and well worth the purchase and time spent reading.
