My son's first short story

My son Alex wrote a short story about his teddy bear last fall called "Little Friend Gets Lost." I took the photos and helped a little bit, but most of this is his. I think it's great. When his first grade teacher read it to his class, the students burst into applause at the end. It doesn't get any better than that.

I have it posted on my website as an Adobe Acrobat file. (Thanks are in order to Lori Baker for scanning the file for me.) It's only nine pages, with one or two sentences per page. Check it out, it's guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

Nice bit of work, he should be proud.
By the way, here's one for him. (I'd post one of my daughter's efforts but she's still negotiating royalties.)

That's great! I just printed off a copy. I'm sure he'll love it.

Hal 2 is on deck after I finish this Julian May novel that's been on my shelf for months.
