Summary

The longest of the stories in this book is short, and the shortest is just one sentence long.
Which means there are lots of stories : a whole bookful to make you shiver, think, laugh and think again. Some are original and some are based on traditional tales or modern myths.

TALK ABOUT SHORT
He was alone and in the dark; and when he reached out for the matches, the matches were put into his hand.

GHOSTESES
Side by side the two men stepped on their spades and dug their allotments until it was time for a tea-break.
"Here! I've been thinking," one man said.
"Thinking? You?"
The first man sighed and mopped his face. "You and all your stories," he said. "I don't believe in these here ghosteses."
"You don't?" said the other man.
And he vanished.

Book banded for guided reading by the Institute of Education - very short stories! / selection of traditional tales, ghost stories, jokes / some stories are emotionally sophisticated so more appropriate for older readers
