In this exciting new book of short stories, Ted Dawe has created quite distinct narrators for each story, each one telling the story in their own characteristic voice. In showing how a story is influenced by 'voice', students will understand something about the writing process.

In the Preface, Ted Dawe talks about his early life and how it influenced the way he tells stories, and where his ideas come from. In the author's comment after each story, Ted explains how the story came about and offers suggestions on how students could write their own stories.
