No book ever ends when itís full of your friends




WE HAVE A TIE. But powering through, it's another double elimination and they're both out oops. In joint 14th place we have 'The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me' a tale of Billy a boy who befriends three different animals all part of the window cleaning business. The story weaves between searching for food for the animals and trying to prevent a burglarly and it's one of the more absurdist tales from the writer and is a delightful, poetic tale of friendship.

We also have 'The Magic Finger' which tells of a young, slightly irritable girl who possesses the power of the title and the ability to transform people that upset or annoy her. It is quite a deep story dealing with themes of vengeance, forgiveness and even animal hunting but it's not as widely known or beloved compared to the bigger stories he told.



The next round will be the final DOUBLE elimination so it's very important that you have your say. Promise i'll be more punctual this time round~ Deadline: Friday 5th February


14. The Magic Finger (14 votes, 19.72%)
14. The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me (14 votes, 19.72%)
15. Boy: Tales of Childhood (17 votes, 19.32%)
16. Going Solo (23 votes, 26.14%)
