this week in your fab value

Welcome to our lovely big fat one – the super-sized pay day issue where less is not more. We’ve filled out all our curves with extra portions of riveting real-life reads, brain-stretching puzzles and, of course, our 24-page Time to Kill crime mag. But here’s a tip – I wouldn’t risk a read of our Cannibal Kitchen feature (p40) while having a nice sarnie on the sofa, or you might find the sarnie saying ‘hello again’. But my favourite tale this week mixes a bit of flesh with a bit of crime and will make you howl with laughter, not shock. It begins, though, with pure terror. There is nothing scarier than the abduction of a child. If we close our eyes, we can all imagine the heart-stopping moment the…

our mad world!

Cute TOT RARGH! Our house becomes a zoo during drying time. My little Arlo, 17 months, loves to bare his milky fangs and dinky claws when wearing his tiger towel. Sara Jayne Clark, Worcester UK When loyal engineer Ed D’Cruze, 65, left Dyson after 20 years, you’d have thought the multi-billion pound company could have forked out for a swanky memento, but in Ed’s smart presentation box all he got were two pencils. You’ve got 2B joking! GERROUT OF MY PUB! Two wild emus – Carol and Kevin – have been barred from an Aussie outback boozer. The publican got fed up with them coming up the entrance steps for a nosey, then getting spooked and ‘bumping into everything’. But now a string rope across the steps is keeping the peace. READ ALL ABOUT IT! Absolutely judge a book…

a man from mars

Standing beside my friends, my eyes roamed over the room. I was at a party and the house was heaving with people in the summer of 2014. Suddenly I saw a lad with gorgeous ash-blond curly hair. He was talking animatedly to his mates. Later he came over to speak to me. ‘I can’t believe how pretty you are,’ he said. His name was Ryan Abbott. But there was a snag. I was just 14 – he was seven years older. But he took my number and whenever we were with our group of friends, he’d give me loads of compliments. And he’d text too. You are beautiful. I loved the attention from him and secretly hoped he’d ask me out when I was older. And just as I turned 17, a text arrived. Come to my flat. I have a present for you. Excitedly,…

But suddenly there was a shattering noise. Ryan had smashed the glass in the door. Stunned, I watched as he crouched down and crawled through the gaping hole he’d made. His heels disappeared into the dark. Is he gone? Is he coming back? Tentatively, I touched my back and peered at the blood on my fingers. Shaking with shock, but cradling my phone in my injured hand, I jabbed Amanda’s number on screen. Gasping and sobbing, I told her what had happened. Minutes later, her car arrived. I crawled through the broken door to reach her. She helped me into her car and took me to her place. She’d already called the police. Officers met me there, and taking one look at my injuries, ferried me to Whiston Hospital, Prescot, Merseyside. The stab wound in my back had gone three centimetres deep. ‘You’re…

barking glad!

While lockdown restrictions ease, it looks like this summer is all about a staycation – and why go away if you can’t bring along man’s best friend? STADE COTTAGE, HYTHE, KENT Just two minutes from the sandy beach at Hythe in Kent, your pooch will be in heaven – with plenty of seagulls to chase and waves to bark at. This modernised fisherman’s cottage is immaculate, with three bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom and a wood-burning stove for when the nights draw in, plus all of the mod cons with smart TVs and Wi-Fi. On arrival, humans are greeted with a hamper of wine and crisps, and there is even a packet of beef chews for the furry visitors. The nearby Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway is home to one of the largest model railway exhibitions…
