For several years Sue has been writing short stories for her website, www.grammysbookshelf.com. Many of them were written for spec...ific holidays, explaining their meaning in simple enough terms for young children to understand. Some are just for fun, mostly using animals to tell the story.

Overhead there was whiteness too, for a veil of mist shrouded the sky, and thin threads Of cloudy vapour hung on branches of trees and moist edges of ponds and hedgerows; or, breaking loose from their hoary moorings, ﬂoated upwards, evaporating and melting before they reached the downy whiteness of the mists above. In the east was a golden region, dazzling in the centre and fading to whiteness through yellows and iridescent greys; and here and there ragged, quickly-closed rents in the ﬂoating vapour showed that beyond this misty glory was a sky of brilliant burning summer blue.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
