The Girl Who Married a Lion

by Alexander McCall Smith - £8.99  Canongate Books (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781841956299 | ISBN 10: 1841956295

How can a girl possibly have married a lion? How can a man have a tree growing out of his head? And how can a woman have children made of wax?
The stories in this delightful collection make these questions seem simple, everyday ones - with, as it happens, simple everyday answers.

"These stories are still beautiful; creating a wryly humorous place where the animal and human worlds are fluidly in touch with each other, and, as in all the best fables, you take a lesson away with you."
