Fourth-grader Big Hig knows he will get detention from his teacher when he doesn’t hand in his homework, the first draft of a story. He thinks it is worth a try to find excuses for his failure and soon finds that his class, his teacher and even the principal look forward to the next installment in a personal story that is truly Big Hig’s to tell. It might even be worth writing down to complete the assignment.  Listen to his tale of woe and life when you read “The Sloppy Copy Slipup”(New Hampshire Great Stone Face 2007)
