Story in print

Back at work and having a nice time.

My first piece of children's fiction is now out in the stores in a prosaically named Puffin anthology. There are some rather nice stories in the collection. Jerry Pinto's piece is not strictly a story but it does talk about some strange things kids in classrooms used to do: Believe that if they save pencil shavings to make an eraser, play 'book cricket' and try to score four's and six'es, draw flowers using compasses...strange, strange children.

Also, I have been clamping down my feelings about Susan Visvanathan's Phosphorus and Stone while I waited for this review to get into Tehelka. Now if I stop you on the street you better be prepared while I talk your ears off about the book.
