The BoogeyMann – by Bennie Newsome

This story begins with a curious introduction to the Mann family, by all accounts an average, respectable family who have developed an odd way of disciplining their children – Mr. And Mrs. Mann are dead set against lying, stealing, cheating and bullying, but they don’t believe in physical discipline so theygo to some extremes to counter such behaviour. Despite this, two of their three children, Chloe and Benjamin, still manage to break the rules on a regular basis, landing themselves in trouble. The third child, Kayla, a do-gooder and rule-keeper, finds herself the victim of a bully.
