2-in-1 Book Review: The Little Book of Tiny Tales Volume 1 & 2 by Jeremy Ray

Title(s) The Little Book of Tiny Tales: Volume 1 & The Little Book of Tiny Tales: Volume 2

Author: Jeremy Ray

Genre: Flash Fiction

Number of Pages: 124 (Volume 1) & 135 (Volume 2)

Rating: B+ (both)

Recommended?: Yes


Easily read in a single evening, these collections of flash fiction are fun and eclectic, touching upon a number of different genres and concepts. The black-and-white photos are appropriately eye-catching and compliment the reading experience nicely, and I liked how the author included notes on his creative process and how many of the stories were based on dreams. If he chooses to write a third installment, I’ll definitely read it.

A few of the ones that stuck with me the most:

  1. The ones about the friendly pit bull who doesn’t understand why people are afraid of him.
  2. The author (an obvious stand-in for J.K. Rowling) is cancelled by her own character.
  3. The dad trying to find common ground with his gay son.
  4. The girl who sees her dad’s reflection in puddles (which was also the intro story to My Mother’s Eyes.)
