The Times Before Miss Missy’s School
A lot of pretty exciting things happened back in the days before Missy and her pack rescued the nameless, homeless hound and her pup, and eventually realized they needed a school for all of the animals living on or near Farther Along Farm. The Times Before Miss Missy’s School is a collection of short stories about episodes from their younger lives– the times before Miss Missy’s School. By necessity, the stories are limited in scene, and in the number of characters, but each short story has the same structure as Miss Missy’s School Book I: A Pack of Farm Dogs Starts a School. There is a story, suitable for middle grade kids, young adults, and their grownups. Each has either “Missy-ism” or “As Someone Once Said” callouts, and a final short “Epilogue: Old Things & Ways Explained.”
