Tales of the Talking Picture is a fabulous science-fiction fantasy novel about a boy who comes into possession of an old oval portrait of a woman named Rhiannon Tanglewyst, who happens to be a witch who has been trapped within the picture for centuries. Rhiannon tells Matthew and his troublesome girlfriend, a Goth named Christina, fantastical tales from the future and the past; from a grisly and terrifying account of what really happened to the crew of the Mary Celeste, to the strange mission of a secret agent who must face a chilling foe in the guise of a child. The imaginative tales also cover battling wizards, the Titanic, the sinister Sunday King, the heart-warming tale of a boy who befriends a giant alien insect, and a petty crook who makes the mistake of trying on an electronic thinking cap - only to discover the ultimate answer to the universe. Tales of the Talking Picture is a guaranteed feel-good listen from one of England's master storytellers, Tom Slemen!
