I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book is a compendium of pieces written by Bill Stokes for his column ‘Stokes Pokes’ during the 60’s. The original was published in 1968 and it was revived this year again and released in digital format for Kindle and in audiobook format for audible. I am grateful to all those people who contributed to give life and a modern form to this piece of literature.
‘Shipping the Kids on Ahead’ is like traveling to the past. These are short stories about daily things like getting over a cold (in a very special way), having your car stuck in the snow or about the children’s needs for school. Each story is told in a light humorous tone and one almost feels part of the Stokes family.
I have read the Kindle version and listened to the audiobook, and the second has the added value of being narrated by top narrators nowadays. They all do a wonderful job but when I knew that Joe Hempel and R.C. Bray were part of the team I HAD to listen to this book and it was so worth it!

My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.
I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six-year stay in Belgium, four cockatiels, eight lovebirds, and a hamster in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
