doris the singing cow

Mr and Mrs Woggle owned Apple Tree Farm. On the farm, there were many animals, including a very special cow called Doris. Doris dreamt of being a singing star. She could sing from the deepest note right up to the highest! “Moo, moo, moo!” she sang all day long. “What a beautiful voice!” neighed Henry the Horse. “We love your singing,” clucked Speckles the Hen. “You should be on the stage,” bleated Sizzles the Sheep. All the other farm animals agreed. One day, Doris spotted a poster pinned to a fence. The Singing Factor comes to Wigglesford! Join Simon Fowl, world-famous judge, at Wigglesford Town Hall this Saturday! ANYONE can enter! The Singing Factor was her favourite show – she just had to enter! But then she had a troubling thought… Cows can’t enter competitions. “What’s up?” asked…

block city

What are you able to build with your blocks? Castles and palaces, temples and docks. Rain may keep raining, and others go roam, But I can be happy and building at home. Let the sofa be mountains, the carpet be sea, There I’ll establish a city for me: A kirk and a mill and a palace beside, And a harbour as well where my vessels may ride. Great is the palace with pillar and wall, A sort of a tower on the top of it all, And steps coming down in an orderly way To where my toy vessels lie safe in the bay. This one is sailing and that one is moored: Hark to the song of the sailors aboard! And see, on the steps of my palace, the kings Coming and…

the golden galleon

Chloe and Jake were on their summer holiday at the beach. They had climbed all the way up the sand dunes and the crooked old steps, and now they were standing on the cliff path looking out at the turquoise sea. It was a beautiful day. “Look, there’s Dad,” said Jake, pointing out a red dot on the beach. “I can see his red hat.” “Let’s walk along the path and see what’s round the corner,” suggested Chloe, so they followed the narrow path as it curved around the end of the bay and around the headland to the next beach. Looking down, they spotted a little horseshoe-shaped cove with perfect white sand and rock pools along each side. There wasn’t a single footprint on the beach. It was their favourite kind…

the dragon queen

Once upon a time, a young prince was riding through the forest when he found an old lady, sitting on the ground, weeping. The prince jumped off his horse and rushed to help her. “What is wrong, my lady?” “Oh, young man,” she said. “I tripped and hurt my ankle. I have been here all night. I would be so grateful if you could take me home.” The prince helped the old lady onto his horse and led her to her little hut in the forest. When he had made sure that she was safe and comfortable, he got up to leave. “Before you go, young man, I have something to tell you. I can see that you are good and honest, and you deserve to marry someone good and honest too.” “I would like…

First, the Jaguar – South American stalker, Rainforest big cat, loves swampy water. It climbs up trees to ambush its prey, Has super-strong jaws, so Boo and Bonnie say. It can bite through a skull and pierce turtle shell, It can chomp through alligator skin as well. But is it tough enough to beat or flatten That heavyweight beast, the Komodo Dragon? The world’s largest lizard – three metres long, It doesn’t breathe fire, but it has a forked tongue. It catches its dinner in razor-sharp claws, And toxic saliva drips from its jaws! Now for an animal you might like to hug. Cuddled up a tree, it looks so snug. But the cute Koala is neither bear nor ted – It’s a marsupial and it loves its bed. Each day, it can…

the mare’s egg

Back in the day, the Dibble family lived in a tiny hamlet of just five houses, somewhere deep in the West Country. They were very happy there. Mr and Mrs Dibble had worked hard all their lives, looking after their apple orchard. They had worked so hard, in fact, that they had never had a day off or even set foot outside the hamlet. “It seems to me, dear wife,” Mr Dibble said, one day, “that we have earned ourselves a holiday. How about we take the horse and cart into the city tomorrow and see what all the fuss is about?” Mrs Dibble wasn’t too sure, but their two children, Ernest and Ellie, jumped up and down with glee. “We don’t have much money,” said Mr Dibble. “But at least we can look.” The…
