Overview

Alfred and the Broken Flute by Maxwell Grantly

Alfred wasn’t like other children; he had no mother or father to look after him. Alfred only owned an old top hat and a small wooden flute. Therefore, Alfred would earn his keep by playing his flute on street corners, to collect donations from passers-by. However, one day, Alfred’s life was to turn upside down when two local villains decided to kidnap him and sell him to a local mine owner, Mr. Slugger. This was how Alfred’s flute became broken.

Discover what happened and find out whether Alfred ever managed to regain his freedom from the two thugs.

In common with many stories by Maxwell Grantly, things rarely ever go according to plan.

About the Author

Maxwell Grantly is the nom de plume of a schoolteacher, living in a small seaside town on the east coast of Great Britain. Although he has written many short stories, he does not think of himself as an author. Maxwell is, first and foremost, merely a mathematics teacher. He simply writes just because he enjoys doing so and for no other reason. Being a schoolteacher, Maxwell Grantly enjoys reading children’s literature as part of his work as well as for recreation. However, as a writer, he does not always write books that could be described as typically suitable for the younger reader: his work is incredibly varied in both syntax and style. Maxwell produces short stories that he enjoys writing and that he enjoys reading. Sometimes he uses vocabulary and imagery that is more suited to adults. At other times, he writes directly for a younger audience. This means that some of his books may only be suitable for accomplished young readers (or for adults who might like a break from their regular reading agenda) while others may be suitable for younger readers who are still developing their literacy skills. By not targeting his work to one particular audience and by not being a professional author, it does mean that Maxwell has an incredible freedom to branch out and simply write recreationally for his own artistic satisfaction. If you enjoy reading his stories then he is pleased that you were able to briefly enter his fantasy world too, if only for a brief ten or fifteen minutes.
