Key Words Short Stories

Have a copy of the file “Key Words….” so that we can continue referring to it next class as we talk about “Sredni Vashtar”, the imaginary devilish creature of Conradin’s prayers. Read the story and focus on the title (DO RESEARCH!), the genre and the characterisation of young Conradin.
