I’m looking for Fymm now that the early frosts are nipping my fingers and toes, like a bite from his small sharp teeth. It’s nearly a year since I last saw him, and I’m scared and excited too. It won’t be long before Thin Time is here again. I think I’d better say who I am before I tell you what happened the last time I met Fymm. I’m Alice Griffin, and I’m telling you my name first because that’s what got me into trouble, and it’s the worst trouble that ever happened to me. Well the worst so far and I’m lucky to be alive. If I’d gone straight home from school it wouldn’t have happened, but after my mum died, and my dad married again, home wasn’t the same any more. Now I had a stepmother and a five-year-old stepbrother, and he followed me around all day and wouldn’t leave me alone. Then my stepmother started shouting at me for nothing. Whatever I did made her cross. So I did things to annoy her, and that got me into loads more trouble, and just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, they did, a lot worse! It was after school at Halloween that the weird things began to happen. Thin Time - A story by Carole Anne Carr Author is set in Tong Church, nr. Shifnal. A book for 8 to 11 yr. olds. 


Some of the characters in the story can be found in the church. At the request of the girls I meet at book signings, the story has a girl hero!

A Commonplace Book Anyone? This is something I’ve been meaning to begin for sometime, but deciding what to include, so that it would be us...
