School: Gyan Mandir Public School

This book is dedicated with deep love to my late son, Hans, once a passionate reader, who passed away in a road accident on his motor-bike at the age of sixteen.

This short story book aims to providing support to the policy of inculcating in our young students the taste for reading English. Simple and short, the stories relate the experiences of Mauritians. Students will not fail to identify themselves with some characters and recognize others.

Attention has been paid to the following precise vocabulary, appropriate link words, well chosen expressions, simple structures so that reading for pleasure be entertaining and instructive. Composition writing can become an enjoyable exercise if ideas are properly expressed.

The title of the stories are like this:
1. Big Balloon
2. Mr. Mukhool – The Teacher
3. Ox-President
4. The Lovely Princess
5. Bojo the Liar
6. The Shark and the Fisherman.
7. A Mischievous They Punished by WASPS
8. The King and the Queen.
