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

I didn't enjoy this collection as much as Harris' first.  The first and last stories are the best and make nice bookends.


The story about loss of a child is good as well.  But the others, I felt a distant from, which is strange because I usually don't feel that way about Harris' work.  She always feels like a very intimate writer too me. 


Maybe because there wasn't much food in this one. 


I do like the use of characters from other stories, and there is more than one tale that feels like a good BBC story.
