The Wild Time

The Wild Time

Today is just an ordinary day for Ella and Pilchard. It is raining outside and they are bored. Mum suggests they read a new book that she has just bought. ‘Jungle Adventures... Sounds interesting!’ As Ella settles down to read, she becomes so engrossed in the story that it feels like she is really in the jungle. When she looks up, she is surrounded by animals! They play all afternoon and have lots of fun taking photos. At tea time. Ella ushers the animals back into the book, and goes to tell her mum about the wild time that she has had with her new friends. ‘Sounds like you had a lovely dream!’ Says her mum. Of course, Ella knows it was all true... she has photographic proof!

M o n s te r s ! A little girl wanders past the lair of a monster. ‘She’ll be easy to scare’ he says. The Monster jumps out and shouts ‘Boo’. The girl turns to the monster and says, ‘Oh, hello, what are you?’ The monster replies that he is a ‘Taskitee’, and that she ought to be scared of him. But the girl says, ‘I’m not scared of monsters; there’s only one thing that scares me, its nothing like you, its all covered in hair.’ The confused monster then says, ‘Hang on a second, I know just who you mean.’ He brings one monster after another out to try and scare the girl, but none of them do. Each time she adds another feature to the description of the only thing that scares her. ‘I’m just not scared of monsters, don’t you see?’ But then the little girl spots a spider on the ground. She screams and shouts - ‘Look out! There it is!’ All of the monsters scream and hide behind the little girl, and ask her what they should do. The little girl replies, ‘There is only one thing for it,’ takes a big breath and screams, ‘DADDY.’ Her Dad sighs when he sees what she is pointing at. ‘It is only a spider, you are so easily scared!’ He ignores the line of monsters standing behind his daughter. The pair walk off into the distance, much to the dismay/confusion of the crowd of monsters.

It was already late when Wolf on his way back home.

All of the sudden, he saw something strange. A little Owl was falling down from a tall tree!

d r s o W Duba Kolanovik

Wolf stayed up late that night. He did lots of research on flying and owls. Little Owl did not sleep either, but that was nothing special. Owls are always awake during the night time.

Wolf was walking home through the forest, when a little Owl fell down from a tree into his path. He tried to help Little Owl back up to her branch, but the poor bird couldn’t fly. Wolf decided to help Little Owl learn to fly, but it was very difficult. He was very frustrated with the little bird ‘What kind of Owl are you? You are so clumsy!’ His words hurt Owls feelings. One day, Little Owl repeats back to Wolf all of the hurtful things he has said, starting to believe them herself. Wolf realises how horrible he has been; he says sorry, offering words of encouragment to Little Owl, and these help her to overcome her fears and finally learn to fly. A lovely tales that teaches children about the importance of being kind to others.
