Short and Shocking! is full of stories with a twist in the tail - each surprising and stimulating in its own way.
Over forty stories in one book - all of them very, very short! None of the stories are more than two pages long, but each of them is special and thought-provoking to inspire short story writers. Drawn from a range of sources, including folk tales, urban myths, and narrative jokes, as well as original stories, the stories are ideal for use in the classroom.
This is Book 1 in the Short! Series. See all Short! books here.
