'Have you ever wished your brother was a fish? Or screamed so loud that the hairs of a caterpillar fell off? These are just some of the fun stories written and illustrated by Sally Morgan. The witty stories, with a folktale feel, are based around a host of characters which are Australian animals, non-native animals, spirits, planets, the sun and moon, and humans.

"Don't stay in the classroom today. Pick a story from Paper Trails and take a journey to somewhere new...Vietnam perhaps, or New York, or go bush with Yanni in his dreams. Be Greek, be black, be white, be old, be a girl, be a mouse, be a vampire. Go to court, go forward in time to the year 2154. Be happy, be sad, be scared. But don't stay in the classroom today"
Paper Trails is a thematic collection, with three or four very different short stories in each of eight categories. Aimed at ages 10-12, each story is accompanied by a variety of student tasks.
