Young readers will enjoy this classic retelling of
an aunt who is traveling by train with rowdy
nieces and a nephew. Like all children, their
patience is limited and requires tons of
entertainment. The aunt starts telling a story,
but is unable to satisfy the curiosity of the
children. Meanwhile, a man, also traveling on
the train, grows impatient, and decides to
intervene and tell a different kind of story.

Saki has contributed to El Contador de Cuentos as an author.
H. H. Munro, better known as "Saki," was born in Burma, the son of an inspector-general for the Burmese police. Sent to England to be educated at the Bedford Grammar School, he returned to Burma in 1893 and joined the police force there. In 1896, he returned again to England and began writing first for The Westminster Gazette and then as a foreign correspondent for The Morning Post.

His short stories at their best are extraordinarily compact and cameolike, wicked and wit
