Once there was a little girl named Alma, skipping softly in the cold windy town through the rough snow.

She stopped at a blackboard and she started writing her name. She looked back. There was a doll that in a shop window that looked the same as Alma. She tried to open the door. She felt mad so she bent down and  threw the snow at the door.  Angrily she walked away touching the wall.

Suddenly the door opened. Weeeeeeeee! Slowly she stepped  right inside. She looked at the doll under her feet and picked it up. It tried to escape. Oh  no! My doll has disappeared. “Boo!” Alma heard. Alma looked happy so she quickly climbed up the couch, her hand went higher and higher than the highest. She touched the dollies head. Suddenly Alma had a bad dream. Suddenly the toys started to look around. Eventually a man came and stole all of the dolls and took them all home and put them all at the window. The dolls woke up the man and got a little fright.

The Stegosaurs And The Maths Competition

Once in a green beautiful forest there was Stegosaurus with sharp spikes on his back and nerdy glasses. His name was Rooney. He was the smartest dinosaur in the forest. You might think that everybody hates him but they don’t. They actually like him because he is the smartest.

One day Rooney signed up for a completion called The World Championship of Maths. When the day came he got ready. “I am going to win”, sang the Stegosaurus.

He won all of his matches. Until he was in the final. “Last question!” said the emperor. “128+128”. Suddenly the other competitor said,”256”. “You’re right”, replied the emperor. Rooney was heartbroken. It was his first time losing. The rest of the dinosaurs were teasing him about how he lost.

After a few months later the other competitor wrote a letter to Rooney and said “Rematch yes /no?” Rooney thought about it. When the time came he marked yes. It was going to be on June the 25th of 2015. He trained and trained.

Six months later the day came. When he finished getting dressed he started to practice. He was nervous. When he got to Eden Park the crowd was going wild. The other competitor was a T-Rex. He had green skin, terrifying claws and two shiny glasses. If the T-Rex lost he might be tempted to gobble up the Stegosaurus. But luckily he was a nice T-Rex.

The two competitors started the game.  The emperor started to play the game. ”Buzz” ten questions done. But then it was a tie. “What is 256+256”, shouted the emperor. “I know this one”, said Rooney. “312”, said Rooney. “You're right”, said the emperor.

So Rooney won the championship of maths. The other competitor was depressed. But when Rooney won the championship he was very delighted.

A Scared Giant

On one cold day, a giant named Bella came home to take a rest in her ice house. But as soon as she looked at the newspaper, she got surprised that lava was coming to Antarctica.

She quickly closed all the doors and windows. She got so worried that the people who wrote the newspaper was joking. She was such a worried giant that she got her stuffed toys and hugged them all.

Bella didn't know what she was doing. Bella didn’t have much time so she quickly opened the door and set off to the airport. As soon as she went to the airport the flood of lava washed the car.

The  flood of lava went in the car, poor Bella’s  face got burnt. Sadly Bella  went to hospital and got bandages all over her face. Bella stayed there for 22 days.

It was Bella’s day to come out of the hospital. Her face was healed. When she came out of the bed she got a wheelchair. She first went home to see if everything was okay. But it was not okay. Everything was burnt even her mum and dad’s picture was cracked to pieces on the floor.

Bella  went to the builders to ask them to build a new house. She crossed her hands because she wanted the builders to make the house free. The builders said the house does not need paying for. “Good!” said Bella.

After her house was made she got the glue and fixed all her pictures up.

Once upon a time on a cold snowy day in a deserted town, there lived a little girl named Alma. She had short blond hair, a pink beanie, and a green coat, also two round blue gloves. Alma was skipping along the snowy path.

Happily she came across a black board with heaps of names on it. When Alma saw the blackboard, she saw a little bit of a white chalk so she wrote her name on the board. All of a sudden a doll popped up in a spooky shop behind her. Alma looked at it closely and it looked exactly like Alma.

After that she swiped all of the snow off the window. She really wanted that doll so she tried and tried to open that door but she couldn't. So she threw a snowball at the door. Since that didn't work, she walked away with her hand on the wall. Creak, creak! Alma heard the door open and went back to the shop.

Slowly she crept into the shop... Alma saw the doll, but suddenly she stepped on a top boy on a bike trying to escape. After that she turned back around and the doll had disappeared! Surprisingly the doll was on top of the shelf so Alma climbed on the sofa to get the doll.

Suddenly she grabbed the doll and took it outside. Next Alma transformed into the doll! Suddenly Alma was breathing heavily like never before. "Wow, I've never ever been in a doll before. This is very odd," Alma said quietly with a sad face. "Oh no!"

After a while Alma let all the dolls out of the shop. But when they all got out they started to grab something hard to SMASH the shop down! Boom! Boom! Boom! They tore the shop down. Alma and the other dolls didn't want to stay in there forever.

They prayed to God so he could help them. Suddenly when they woke up the next day, they were back to their real selves and they all became friends.

The end.

Once in a Lifetime

Once upon a time there was an adult called Scott who lived in an air ship. Scott liked to adventure in the air early in the morning looking for new animals that haven't been discovered by humans.

One day he was looking for new animals as usual, when he saw bits of air ship falling off. 

He thought, "I hope everything's okay down there?" He went down to see what happened when... WHOOSH!

Scott looked out his window and ... and there were thousands of graceful  flying beetles floating in the air.  WHOOSH!, FLAP!, ZOOM!

Scott wondered if he could use the beetle's shell to cover the gaps in the air ship so that it can fly again. So he lassoed the beetle and he got a bulls eye! Although he got the beetle, the rope started to snap... SNAP! So Scott made a life changing decision, it was to abandon his ship.

He leaped out of his ship and landed on a flying beetle's back.  Scott said, "So this is what it feels like to be a flying beetle!"

Suddenly they vanished into fog and... Wallah! They were at the Amazon rainforest in forest land! Then the strangest thing happened to Scott... He felt the warm hug of a beetle! He had made a special bond with the beetle! Scott called the beetle Dylan.

From now on Scott lives with Dylan in the treehouse they made together. They play fetch, catch the rope, and water fight. And they lived happily ever after!

Once in a Lifetime

On a sunny afternoon there was an old man named Lachlan. He was in a diamond ship with a balloon up the top. He was flying slowly up the blue sky.

While he was pulling a rope part of the ship broke! Now he couldn't move anywhere. But then he heard a noise. He got his telescope and looked closely. Suddenly he found some gigantic green flying turtles. They were gliding like hawks. When he saw the gigantic green flying turtles an idea popped into his mind. He had a rope and tied a circle with the rope. He lassoed the turtle like a cowboy. "Yeeeeeeehaaaaaaaa!" His brilliant idea worked. The turtle was moving the ship.

Suddenly the turtle was shaking and flapping it's wings. But unfortunately when it was shaking it broke the rope. The old man was depressed!  Luckily, he saw another gigantic green flying turtle. As  the turtle flew beside his ship he leaped of the edge of the boat and landed on the turtle's shell.

He looked up and breathed through the air. When he looked down he saw the land. He was ecstatic! Surprisingly he heard the turtles talk. So he asked them if he could get dropped off at his house.
