The Champion and other stories addresses the problem of finding stories to interest 14 - 16 year olds in this collection by some of Australia's best writers. The stories were chosen as the best or favourite story by each author for readers in that age group (Years 9 to 10). Each story is an example of quality writing, covering a range of styles, subjects, lengths, and types of story.
