The High Master and Little Billy Clough is a humorous short story written by John Waddington-Feather (born 1933), a British author who belongs to the West Yorkshire 'school' of writers.
Set in North Yorkshire, the story not only tells about a twelve-year old boy placed in a ‘select’ school to iron out his accent, but also provides a great opportunity to explore the role of accents in British society.

Jackie Kay's story My Daughter, The Fox gives the reader an unusual view of the mother/child relationship. As the title suggests, the narrator's daughter isn't human, but the feelings generated between mother and daughter are universal and so the scene is set for the paradox to be played out.

Giffen is an unpleasant man who is always on the lookout for ways to trick money out of 'suckers' and his amazing glue seems to be the perfect way to do this. Until he come across Flinty, that is.
Strap Box Flyer is from the pen of one of Australia's most popular writers for children, Paul Jennings. This kit was assembled - without using any glue - by teachers from India, Portugal and Turkey on a NILE (Norwich Institute of Language Education) summer course.
