Last week's story:

"Tailor Tim"

A golden needle, a talking cat, a princess locked in a deep dungeon, taxes increased again, a chase through narrow alleyways, the king`s guards everywhere and a poisonous magic potion... these are some of the ingredients of Tim`s adventure.
If Fairy Tales had included crime stories, this would be one of them!

Rubber Boy - a detention thriller!

Blast! It’s school again. Worse, it’s detention, with Mr. Beasting: “The Beast” with his diabolical punishments. But this time he’ll regret coming up with such an inventive ordeal for Jonathan. It starts a chain of events that even the Beast didn’t reckon with. This is a story about magic powers and unforeseen consequences. It’s a short thriller for anyone who hates school detention and extra homework. Use it to start the new school term with a Bang! Or revisit it when you need to rub away those Monday morning classroom blues.
