My 8.5 and 6 year old boys have been enjoying the World's Worst Children short story collections at bedtime. Previously it has been a struggle to get them to sit and listen to a bedtime story together. I think they like the naightiness of the books. I'd love to continue this bedtime harmony! Can anyone recommend other short story collections. I think they'd like modern authors, rather than Enid Blyton etc.

How to Train your Dragon has quite short chapters. Fun for grown-ups too.
