Two new tales in the Dark Reads series for Badger Learning

The Girl In The Wall

I hated my new house. I hated my new school. And I hated that I had to move away from all my friends.
Then I made a new friend in the most unexpected place.
Inside my bedroom wall…


Ben and Darren are best friends who do everything together. But when a dare goes horribly wrong, Darren is left haunted by his final decision.  What will it take to make it right?   

What people are saying about Tommy…

“Just wanted to say a big thank you for today! The children and staff had a fantastic time and you created a real buzz around school! I am hoping that today will be a day that the children will remember for years to come. They certainly enjoyed meeting you and listening to your stories!”

“We were thrilled to welcome Tommy to the school to lead the workshops. His enthusiasm was infectious and all the students involved really enjoyed learning how to write in such a creative manner.”
