If something is soporific, it makes you sleepy. That is the purpose of our stories; to help you forget your worries and outside thoughts, and then drift off to sleep with a feeling of peace.
This is the third collection in the Soporific Stories For All Ages series. Included in this volume are 2 stories. The first is "Inventing A Game Before The Rain", and the second is "Shannon And The Snow Monkey".
Our first story, "Inventing A Game Before The Rain", follows a few days in the life of Burt McBoo and his animal friends. Burt is a problem solver. The forecast predicts rain in a few days, and Burt, with the help of his little bird sidekick (Knit-twit) works out a fun way to spend time until the rain arrives.
Our second story, "Shannon And The Snow Monkey", is told in rhyme. The setting is a pooped-out gold town, which can't attract tourists because of a terrorizing snow monkey. Can Shannon, ‘the smallest person in that very small town', make a difference? Oh, there is a tufted wood twit in this tale.
These are two pleasant stories to be read again and again until they become innocent, sleepy friends. Let them tuck you in.
