Benjamin Clark | 2 comments Hello!

I'm at my wit's end and starting to doubt my memory.

When I was a young kid (15-20 years ago) in Australia I recall renting books from our local library. The records are long gone as are the books.

I read a lot of Fear Street and Goosebumps but there was a series I liked there were multiple volumes but the thing I recall is this very thin short stories - maybe 20 pages or so (good for a short car trip) but there were a lot of them.

They were individual volumes and had dark colourless covers mostly black and white from memory.

I can't recall any of the stories except one, and all I recall is a bully cutting the eye out of a crab to torment a thin weedy kid he hated that lived nearby

I believe they were lightly illustrated but not highly detailed.

If ANYONE recalls this please post as I'll recognise a cover right away.
