Source: Cary Fagan

There’s a story I used to read my kids when they were little(r): Mr. Zinger’s Hat.

It’s about a young boy (Leo) and an old man (Mr. Zinger). The boy’s mother has warned him not to bother the old man.

He’s a writer, she explained. He’s busy coming up with his stories.

Leo is playing with his ball in the schoolyard. An errant bounce sends it hurtling towards Mr. Zinger…




Creative storytelling and editorial strategy.
