"Kids feeling jaded? Avi, the man with one name but 1,001 story ideas, offers a fistful of remedies in "Strange Happenings: Five Tales of Transformation... "Fittingly for a collection with a shape-shifting theme, the other four stories are quite dissimilar, venturing into realms of folk and fairy tale, science fiction and even baseball to deliver their sharp little moral jabs." --"Washington Post Book World "(May 28, 2006)
