    I read a very good story at primary school. It was about a group of kids that hide on a seaside pier until after dark, when after it closes for the night, they start playing on the rides and games. If I can remember, a storm starts to batter the pier and part of it collapses into the sea. The kids have no way of getting back to the shore or calling for help and somehow, a fire breaks out. It's a story that's been stuck in mind ever since. Any ideas?

    There was someone at our school called Mr Fox and the kids used to say that it was about him.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).
