    29 pages

    29 pages long. For a short story, this one had a lot going for it. I wish the author had continued on a bit longer. I would have liked to know what happened next. The ending was pretty good as is, but I wanted more. The only mistake I found was there used in place of their. I think tweens could read this book and it would make a good learning tool for parents and teachers to use to teach children about unsafe situations and preventive measures. This is only the second short story I have given five stars to. It is very good.
