The Witches of Hambone Parts Three and Four
Tanya saves Hambone and Angela meets the Nastacians
by Norman F Tate

Two fireballs came roaring down the street and struck the first table and sent broken flaming pieces flying through the air. NOW, Tanya thought, as she worked up her spells, she sent two very large fireballs directly at Agoria, who somehow diverted them down to the ground on either side of her. Tanya had given her position away, so she stepped out into the street, with the two cats at her sides, rubbing against her legs, giving more power. Agoria gave out that awful cackling laugh and said. “I have you now Tanya, you will perish here today and never return.” As she said this she fired two large fireballs at Tanya, who casually brushed them aside. Sebastian and Jasmine curled around her ankles and she could feel the extra power flowing through her, which they were giving to help her defeat Agoria.

Sillybeth after Muddledydo
by Norman F Tate

In the event of Muddledydo resigning her post as the village witch, and marrying the landlord of the local inn, it left a vacancy for a village witch. Word was sent around the lands, far and wide, advertising the fact that there was a vacancy in the village of Simpleton, for a witch, whose duties would be the usual thing of looking after the locals and their families, plus the farmers and their animals, etc. etc. It did not take long before the villagers received word of several witches most of them young and newly qualified, who were looking for just such a post. To cut a short story, short, the village accepted the one they thought would best be suited for the post. Mistress Sillybeth was not at all like Muddledydo; she had not made herself look how a witch would usually look like, she was a beautiful dumb blonde, sorry, straw blonde.

FOUR SHORT STORIES TO BE READ AT BEDTIME TO THE CHILDREN.
by Norman F Tate

My original intention was to pass on these stories to my youngest grandson and my great grandson. There were only three stories in the first version, so, being urged to write more, I wrote another story called “MIRANDA”, especially for this book. All the stories are full of fun and games, plus some illustrations. Animals play the biggest roles in all four stories, and this is intentional, because I do know children love stories all about animals and the things they get up to in their lives. The stories being kept short, this is so the young ones do not get bored with a long drawn out dialogue about what is going to happen later etc. The first three stories I have written in a chronological order, from one day to the next, and in one story, “Garden Friends”, through the seasons. These four make up a wonderful opportunity for your children, who will enjoy having them read to them at any time of the day, but especially at bedtime. These are easy to read, and easy for the youngest to understand. Enjoy with your children, enjoying these stories.
