The students in Mr. Magro’s class submit stories for the SOS file about their biggest emergencies, and then they read them aloud for extra credit. Young Hoosier Book Award, 2008-2009, 4-6 Nominee
Children looking for humors short stories to take a break from rigorous homework will find The SOS File by Betsy Byars, Betsy Duffey and Laurie Myers the answer. Throughout the school year teacher, Mr. Margo asked his students to write a short story about an emergency to receive extra credit in the class. Twelve students take him up on his offer and all but one receives extra credit.
Children will love the twelve wonderfully written funny stories. My favorite is the ¬Chocolate SOS were the writer must sale candy bars for his baseball team only to have to borrow forty dollars from his mother because he eat the candy bars. Find out if his mother loans him the money and read the one story that the student did not receive extra credit for writing. Sit back and enjoy these humors stories, you will sure have a belly ache from laughing so hard.
