Product description

Another fast fix of bite-sized fiction from the wonderful Kevin Crossley-Holland. Snappy stories of two pages at most: mini tales for maximum effect. Inside are short stories to make you gasp and quake, and others to make you laugh and smile. Read them anywhere, but stay on the alert. These are stories that no sooner begin than end! Packed with fantastic, funny and thought-provoking tales that slot quickly into lessons and free moments, this inspiring book is a true classroom essential.

Praise for Short!:

“Each [story is] a masterpiece of brevity and narrative skill.” Carousel

“This is a brilliant book.” TES

“An espresso-cup collection which condenses the author’s distinguished career as a reteller of folk-tales into bite-sized fables with a strong after-taste effect.” Literary Review
