Captain Sailor Bird and Other Stories free pdf In this exciting new book of short stories, Ted Dawe has created quite distinct narrators for each story, each one telling the story in their own characteristic voice.

In the author's comment after each story, Ted explains how the story came about and offers suggestions on how students could write their own stories. A Teacher's Guide CD, is available for purchase. It contains curriculum-related activities and suggested answers, a section on drafting a short story as well as two extra short stories for classroom use.
