From down-to-earth trolls to ADD dogs, Oleg Medvedkov’s offbeat humor and zany prose bring strange worlds to life, toy with them over lunch break, then let them go. Short stories introduce the fearsome intergalactic rabbit and an obsequious storeowner in France with equal aplomb, and random confusion. Meanwhile talking dogs eat cake on air and struggle to handle the telephone with their paws. Entirely logical, of course, or illogical, or something…
My favorite story has a thoroughly random, and logical, sting in its tail. But the hungry crocodile’s sting might lie in its jaws, or on the pages of a Gratitude Journal; you’ll have to read to find out why. So take a commercial break, or laugh break, or lunch break, and enjoy some five-minute smiles. Part of the author’s Take a Break and Have a Laugh Series, these nicely-edited and quickly-read pieces flash past faster than a sandwich, go down well with coffee or cold caffeine, and leave the reader mildly amused, bemused and confused, all in one.
Disclosure: The author let me know this book was free and asked if I’d like to read and review it, so I did.

From The Publisher The author of this book was overheard saying, "Just because I can write a book with dogs in it, doesn't mean I have to. It's not like someone is holding a gun to my head."
