Sophie King is adept at writing tales in this format; she quickly paints a picture, draws characters and sets a scene with enough information for us to grasp and enjoy the scenario being played out yet staying within the boundaries of a short story. I liked many of them, including Card Making for Beginners, which deals with a father son relationship and the theme of acceptance, whilst injecting humour through the card making session.
