Eugene's Story
Written By Richard Scrimger
Illustrated By Gillian Johnson
Once upon a time there was a boy named Eugene. He had a big sister named Winifred and a little sister named Bun Bun. Eugene was in the middle. This is his story.

It was morning. It was spring, and raining, and Tuesday. Eugene was old enough to dress himself. He went -

"No-no-no!" interrupted Winifred. "1 can dress myself, but you can't. Your shirt's on backwards!"

was it? EugeI1e checked. Humph. He couldn't tell. And anyway, who cared? So his shirt was on backwards - so what? He frowned at his big sister.

"This is my story," he said. He started again.
