Free Stories

Dear readers,

This is a desperate time for library users and people who love books. So I wanted to do what I do best, which is to entertain children with my love of writing.

Below you’ll find links to a couple of my unpublished stories. They are absolutely free to download/save and read, though I would, of course, ask you not to reproduce them in print or on other websites. The stories can be read by anyone, but they are primarily aimed at children between the ages of 7 and 11. I do hope you can access them successfully. If you have any problems or other queries, feel free to contact me at dragonmail1@btinternet.com Enjoy!

Joanna’s Slippers is a very simple idea about a young girl who has exciting adventures when she tries on different pairs of novelty slippers.  I wrote it many, many years ago when I first became interested in writing children’s fiction.  It will seem a little old-fashioned, perhaps, but it’s still a lot of fun, and it always makes me laugh.

Like Joanna’s Slippers, Book Week has stories within the main narrative.  And has an extra treat at the end!  I had the idea for it when I was in a pub one night and overheard a bunch of primary school teachers planning for World Book Day, indeed a whole week of book-related activities.  They couldn’t afford to have an author in school.  So I decided to write a story about what it’s like to have a wacky author like me come visit.  Much of what ‘the author’ in Book Week does, I have done.  So beware if you ever want to book me!

Stay safe.  And best wishes,

Chris d’Lacey
