free short story for kids

'Happy Valentine', the latest short story featuring Francesca Spaghetti and Poppy Noodle and the gang from the Magic Meadow was published on my author site ( on, appropriately enough, Valentine's Day.

In this short tale, Poppy Noodle gets jealous of her sister because she got a valentine and Poppy did not. The story is funny,  poignant and uplifting and the plot develops in some unexpected ways to teach the sisters an important lesson about love and what doing the right thing means​. 

I enjoyed writing this story as it gave me a chance to flesh out the characters of my heroes as well as some of their friends and nemeses at school.

On which subject there will be two more books in the Adventures of Francesca Spaghetti and Poppy Noodle series coming out very soon, so keep an eye out for those. If you prefer sign up to the readers group and I'll send you an email when they are ready.

I have been asked by a number of people if the short story was available in PDF form and I am happy to say it now is. It's free of charge but I'd ask you to share or like the page to help me get the book promoted to a wider audience. Just follow the instructions on my book page which you can access here.

I hope you enjoy it. Leave a comment or message me with your feedback.
