About this audiobook

"These witty fantasy stories kept me turning pages, wondering what could possibly happen next. I also laughed out loud! Very entertaining." – R.L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps books

What If...?

A witch worked at the 7-11?

You could speak to the dead using Zoom?

Aliens were infiltrating Hollywood?

Someone was secretly cleaning your house when you weren't there?

Would You...?

Ask her out on a date?

Cash in?

Put them in a movie?

Let them?

Tall Tales, Fairy Tales, and Bedtime Stories (For Former Children) is a storybook for adults who grew up on Harry Potter, Goosebumps, and Bone and are nostalgic for the tales of their youth. Written in a traditional storytelling style, the ten episodes within Tall Tales cover topic matter of interest to adults in a format reminiscent of their childhood stories. 

Tall Tales, Fairy Tales, and Bedtime Stories (For Former Children) is a synthesis of old and new, aimed at readers who have grown up but who haven't grown old. Adult sophistication combines with childhood wonder to entertain an audience with one foot in each world. Ghosts, graverobbers, aliens, astronauts, Devil's Advocates, and tooth fairies abound in the collection designed to appeal to the young at heart, but written for those old enough to drink. (Contains mild language.)
