This week's story:


"Rubber Boy"


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.


Recommended for readers from 6-14 and adults.
