Illustrated by Reginald Gray
Denny was very good at coping with most things by himself. He had to be - because he'd lived with his gran ever since his parents were killed.
But one thing Denny couldn't cope with was Bouncer Bradley, the school bully. He couldn't stop Bouncer hanging around in wait for him, ready to throw stones. When his gran had to go into hospital, Denny made up his mind fast.
If he was going to stay safe, he had to run away!
