Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz: Three Adventures - Garth Nix

This ebook is a compilation of three short stories that appear in different anthologies.   Mister Fitz is an animate puppet, who was once the nursemaid to Sir Hereward, but has now become his companion as they travel to rid the world of godlets that are trying to invade from a different dimension.    

Since they’re just short stories, I confess, it does feel like something’s missing.    There’s really no back  story, other than what you can pick up by comments they make, and I definitely would like to know more about that back story.

These stories also have a caution that unlike most of the author’s other work, they’re not for kids, and that’s true.    It’s not like they’re full of adult themes, but there are definitely some references that are not kid friendly.
