Favourite Stories for Boys




Book cricket, beetle races, bows and arrows, inkball fights in school . . . Boys will be boys . . .

Witty boys, sporty boys, befuddled boys, mean boys.

There is also one who can’t tell left from right, much to his teacher’s fury; Amin, who faces up to a terrorist in the middle of a dog show; and Kari, who gets sucked into a parallel universe on his way back from the Principal’s office.
