Mrs Honey's List

Mrs Honey's List (1994) Post 285

Mrs Honey's List
Mrs Honey's List is a short easy-read story. Mrs Honey's class is getting ready for the school fete. Each child nominates a recipe she or he will make for the fete, adding "it's my favourite". Mrs Honey's list is nicely diversified, but the next morning, fete day, sees each child having made something else because of lack of an ingredient. Mrs Honey continually updates the list... but eventually all the items are as/was in the list, though made be a different child. At the fete, each child buys his or her favourite thing. Mrs Honey reacts by tearing up the list.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service.
