Tomorrow we were supposed to go swimming in a cold and muddy lake. It was then that I decided to do something drastic. I would run away from camp! I wrote a note saying that I wasn’t feeling well and that my parents would be coming to pick me up. I left it in my tent for one of the camp counsellors to find. I departed just before the sun started to rise. I was in a rush as I gathered my things and left as fast as I possible, oblivious to the fact that my note was being carried away by the morning breeze.
This is a collection of short stories for kids. Included are a story about a magical pen that feeds off of a young boy's imagination, a girl's relationship with nature and wise old tree, and a mysterious creature that washes up on shore only to be subjected to an onslaught of tourists wanting selfies. Also included is the story of a boy who doesn't like summer camp so he sneaks away from his campsite only to encounter the legendary Bigfoot. And finally there is a tale about the perfect kid. Harper is an amazing athlete and student but he seems a little too good to be true.
