Punch and Cookies Forever

Punch and Cookies Forever is a collection of ten delightful short stories by Jack Weyland. The stories touch on many themes—the struggles of inactive youth to gain a testimony, the blessing given to a son by a father just before he died of cancer, the experience of a pilot shot down over enemy territory, and the growth of a young man who learns to keep bees through a church welfare project and makes that his career. Several stories tell of helping others, like The Summer Term, an account of a boy and girl helping each other conquer personal problems; Quorum, the tale of a young deacons’ president; and A Christmas Song, about a ward which draws on the talents of an elderly choir director. And finally, The Field Is White is the heart-warming tale of a high school pep band that brings the Christmas spirit to travelers stranded in a blizzard. Every story is good reading, that lifts as it entertains!

    Punch and Cookies Forever

    by Jack Weyland

    Punch and Cookies Forever is a collection of ten delightful short stories by Jack Weyland. He made his debut as a master story teller in The New Era magazine. Since that time he has written dozens of stories for young people. His ability to bring his characters to life and to relate real-life situations to the reader has made him one of the most popular LDS story tellers of today.

    The stories in this volume have been previously published in The New Era magazine, and are reproduced here with their permission. In each story the characters become you and your friends. Each incident becomes very real. And each conclusion makes you a better person and leaves you with a stronger testimony of the gospel.

    The stories in Punch and Cookies Forever touch on many themes—the struggles of inactive youth to gain a testimony, the blessing given to a son by a father just before he died of cancer, the experience of a pilot shot down over enemy territory, and the growth of a young man who learns to keep bees through a church welfare project and makes that his career. Others have unusual twists—like Brad and Jenny, in which a couple make the decision to become engaged after being innocent accomplices in a jewelry-store holdup, and Patterns, in which a father draws guidance for his son through reminiscences while on a fishing trip.

    Several stories tell of helping others, like The Summer Term, an account of a boy and girl helping each other conquer personal problems; Quorum, the tale of a young deacons’ president; and A Christmas Song, about a ward which draws on the talents of an elderly choir director. And finally, The Field Is White, is the heart-warming tale of a high school pep band that brings the Christmas spirit to travelers stranded in a blizzard. Every story in Punch and Cookies Forever is good reading, a tale that lifts as it entertains!
