"This is not your every day town. There is something dark here, something that lies beneath the surface. The kids that live here know this more than anybody. Everybody has a story, and not all stories have happy endings. Welcome to Mardell."
This booklet is designed as a Short Story Reading Comprehension activity.
In the booklet, there are three short stories, designed for middle grade readers who enjoy thrilling or chilling adventures. Stories are free from any gratuitous violence or sexuality, and are appropriate for ages 9 and up.
At the end, there is an attached activity booklet that ask the reader to identify the main idea of each story, recall information, make inferences, and examine vocabulary. Each story has its own set of questions.
The answers are included.
Two of the stories have been published in consumer magazines in the past. The book, Tales from Mardell, is also available as an eBook for Kobo, Kindle, and most other eReader formats.
