Two earlier books of Tales and More Tales to read in a Hammock have been edited and more exciting stories added to combine in one book – Old and New Tales To Read in a Hammock. Great stories to read on a commute to work, relax before bed, read in a Hammock in the Summer or a log fire in winter. Well received by readers who enjoy Robyn’s books.
