A free short story by Tom Palmer for Years 4, 5 and 6: The Character Strikes Back

Added 25 Jul 2017 | Updated 16 Aug 17

Download our free five-part short story for Years 4, 5 and 6, written for us by children's author Tom Palmer.

Reading Tom Palmer’s short story ‘The Character Strikes Back’ to my class was as delightful an experience for me as a teacher as it was for my young listeners, who truly learned the meaning of a ‘cliff-hanger’. Writhing in a delightful agony of suspense and anticipation at the end of each day, their desperation to find out what happened next informed many discussions and some marvellous predictions. Parents even called the school to find where they could buy the book their children couldn’t stop talking about!
