Short story for ages 10+ A monster boar? With crooked toes? Or is Dad just dreaming?
Told in the hunter’s lore and language.
‘Dad’s told me stories about a monster boar he calls Crooked Toes. Sometimes I’d wonder if it’s just a figment of his imagination. Dad’s head can be pretty pig-mad and his stories a bit Harry Potterish. When I finally get to go on a hunt I see the prints for myself.’
