Books for Blokes
These two books contain short stories selected from our "Books for Blokes" story writing competition. Quirky, amusing and occasionally politically incorrect, they are an entertaining read for everyone, and especially for young males.
Caught in the Act
A rigged competition, a sneaky policeman, the problem of disposing of a dead horse and much more...
Hot wheels, dogged devotion and explosive toilets, there is no fear of boredom with this assortment of home-grown short stories.

These books are aimed at the young male adult reader, but are amusing and engaging for all ages.
Stories Online is an online teaching resource that encourages and supports young adults to read.
We've taken five short stories from our collection of Books for Blokes and created an online reading resource to encourage aspiring adult readers.
It's designed for modern devices (iPad, iPhone, smart phones). We were fortunate to have local presenter Matt Lawrey read the stories for us.
Stories Online gives added reading support. We identified two key behaviours of fluent readers and created features to train the reader into these behaviours.
