The Toys of Peace

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.8 stars; 10 reviews)

This is the fifth collection of short stories by Saki (H.H. Munro), and was published posthumously in 1923. Even so, many of the stories are quite up to the standard of those collected earlier. (Summary by Graham Redman) (6 hr 59 min)

An excellent book

(5 stars)

I like this, not perhaps as much as Beasts and Super Beasts, but it is still well worth the listen.
