Screwtop Thompson

by Magnus Mills

A quirky collection of eleven stories infused with humour and a hint of menace. Although delivered with a deadpan voice, I suspect that this author writes with a mischievous glint in his eye.


In the meantime, we had to exchange gifts. We gave Martin solitaire, and he gave us snakes-and-ladders (which we already had). This meant that sometime after the holidays we would have to write to Martin's parents thanking them and hoping that our cousin had got home safely. It also meant we would have to play snakes-and-ladders several times during the next few days. It was while preparations were being made for just such a game that I noticed one of my sugar mice had gone missing.
