Follow the disaster magnets of St Mary's as they hurtle around history! The ninth book in The Chronicles of St Mary's Series collects the best-selling short stories in audio for the first time.
'When a Child Is Born': a jump back to 1066 to witness the coronation of William the Conqueror goes slightly astray.
'Roman Holiday': Max and her team become spectacularly involved with Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and a basket of confused asps.
'Christmas Present': an attempt to rescue lost historians involving an enraged pig and Boudicca herself.
'The Very First Damned Thing': discover the truth about the very beginning of St Mary's.
'Ships and Stings and Wedding Rings': a gun left behind in ancient Egypt and a race against time to prevent a catastrophe.
'The Great St Mary's Day Out': hooray! It's a happy holiday. For everyone except Max, the only one with her mind on the job.
'My Name Is Markham': Alfred, the cakes and Mr Markham. The Great British Bake Off it's not!
And a bonus a new and previously unpublished short story - 'A Perfect Storm'.
"Taylor has written a madcap and very funny hodgepodge of a novel whose pacing and humour is reminiscent of a Simon Pegg Edgar Wright film." (Booklist)

All new introductions to the re-issued books
This version of the short stories rank highly for me due to the all new introductions to each story. I already have all the previous short stories from audible and this is the icing on the cake.
My name is Markham. I enjoyed the stand alone version which was ok-ish but this version narrated by Zara Ramm had me laughing outright.
She brings the whole thing to life and it seems (with a good imagination) that you can actually see events as they enfold, hence the hoots of laughter.
I always enjoyed the early stories. See notes above regarding My Name is Markham. The new book to the series, Perfect Storm also had me laughing out loud ~ the nutters were at it again with great gobs of detritus flying in all directions.
