How Dad Won Mum

Two long stories, 140 pages

In the first story, “How Dad Won Mum”, the hero is a ten-year-old boy whose parents separate after a terrible row. The boy goes with his mother to live with his ill-inten- tioned Grandma. He misses his father terribly. With the help of a little girl whom he likes very much, he does everything he can think of to bring his Mum and Dad back together again. In the second story, “Hello, Love”, a boy and a girl meet at a New Year celebration, and fall in love. The only problem is that he lives in Zagreb - while her home is 2000 kilometres away, in London. Their love story unfolds over the phone, and ends with their running away to meet in Paris - the City of Lovers.
