The Hero Next Door

The Hero Next Door is a collection of short stories written by award-winning authors and aimed at middle grade readers. Each story includes a diverse group of people, focuses on at least one child, and has a hero doing every day things because something that seems simple to one person can be huge to another. I quite enjoyed most of the stories. I highly recommend this book to people of all ages!

Pants on Fire by Clayton Smith

Pants on Fire is a collection of short stories that are most definitely all lies. Some are better than others. Some are funny, some are creepy, some make you think. Overall, I found them to be quite enjoyable, particularly the shorter ones. It’s an odd little book for sure.
