Wishlist Wednesday....


I am delighted to be part of wishlist Wednesday which is hosted by Dani at pen to paper

The idea is to post about one book each week that has been on your wishlist for some time, or maybe just added.

So what do you need to do to join in?

Follow Pen to Paper as host of the meme.

Pick a book from your wishlist that you are dying to get to put on your shelves.

Do a post telling your readers about the book and why it's on your wishlist.

Add your blog to the linky at the bottom of her post.

Put a link back to pen to paper (http://vogue-pentopaper.blogspot.com) somewhere in your post.


A Cat, a Hat and a Piece of String

A Cat , a Hat and a Piece of String 
by 
Joanne Harris


Book blurb from Goodreads



A second short story collection from Joanne Harris, author of

Chocolat and Peaches for Monsieur le Cure.



'Stories are like Russian dolls; open them up, and in each one you'll find another story.'


Conjured from a wickedly imaginative pen, here is a new collection of short stories that showcases Joanne Harris's exceptional storytelling art. Sensuous, wicked, mischievous, uproarious and wry, here are tales that combine the everyday with the unexpected; wild fantasy with bittersweet reality.

From the house where it is Christmas all year round, to a ghost who lives on a Twitter timeline; from the Congo where a young girl braves the raging rapids to earn a crust of bread, to Norse gods battling for survival in Manhattan; and a newborn baby created with sugar, spice and lashings of cake, these stories will ensnare and delight you with their variety and inventiveness.

I've loved all of Joanne Harris's books and am so looking forward to reading this one . I am intrigued by the title and think the cover looks very appealing - Jaffa is particularly excited by the idea of the cat in the book....
