David Almond story

Take a look at David Almond's short story in today's Times. "The Missing Link" is a tale of bullying, written by a master.

Almond is the author of Skelling, Kit's Wilderness, The Fire-Eaters, and Clay (forthcoming this spring in the U.S.)

And, for all you The Lord of the Rings fans (I know you're out there!), two contrasting views of Tolkien's work at the Times.
