When Kate steps through a magic mirror, she finds herself in a world where time goes backwards. Mme. Wadjinski acts as her guide as Kate relives the crucial moments of her life. In The Old War Horse, Jasper remembers nothing beyond the smell of explosives and the noise of muskets. One day his friend Prince suggests they make a break for freedom. The other stories range from light-hearted humour as Gangsta Grannie wards off would-be muggers with her brolly, to more serious topics. Most of them have a twist in the tale. If you like imaginative and original stories, you will enjoy this book.
