paper round with the queen

I met the Queen in a hat shop. “I’m Bobby Miller,” I said to her. “Can I ask you something very important?” “Yes, of course.” She smiled. “Is it true that you have your very own helicopter?” “That’s right,” she replied. “Would you like to see it?” “Can I? Really? That’d be brilliant!” I cried. “I’ll pick you up after breakfast,” the Queen promised, so I gave her our address. The helicopter landed in our front garden. It was gigantic and really noisy! I hopped in. “Where would you like to go, Bobby?” the Queen asked. “To the beach!” I replied. “The beach it is!” We had the most wonderful time, making sandcastles and paddling. “Would you like to come tomorrow?” the Queen asked when it was time to go. “I’d love to, but I can’t – I have a paper round…

raven steals the sun

According to the Haida people of Canada, at the beginning of the world there was no light, fire or water. Life was miserable. This was because Grey Eagle was the guardian of the sun, moon, stars, fire and fresh water – and Grey Eagle hid them away because he hated people. Now Grey Eagle had a beautiful daughter and Raven had heard a lot about her. Raven was also handsome. His feathers were as white as the purest snow and his wings were wide and strong. One day, Raven met Grey Eagle’s daughter and they fell in love with each other. She invited Raven to visit her longhouse the next day to meet her father. However, when Raven came to visit, he was shocked to discover the sun, moon, stars, water and fire…

beauty’s magic mirror

Beauty’s love of books made her the perfect teacher for Storyland – and her pupils always looked forward to their lessons in Beauty and Beast’s castle library. Beauty’s library had every book you could ever dream of and it was home to her magic mirror, which she used to show her class amazing things – from Oz and Neverland to unicorns and dragons. Her magic mirror was a window to the world. Today she was planning to use it to show her pupils mermaids and mermen. They couldn’t wait, but first she had to do the register. She was halfway through when someone rapped on the library door. “Come in,” called Beauty. A funny little fellow in a red hat walked in, smiling nervously. Beauty had never seen him before. “Can I help you?” she…

the pirate poodle

Once there was a Pirate Poodle And he sailed the briny seas, From the land of Yankee Doodle Southward to the Caribbees! He would boast with tales outlandish, Of his valour and renown; And his cutlass he would brandish With a fearful pirate frown. So ferocious was his manner All his crew looked on, aghast; And his fearful pirate banner Floated from his pirate mast. He reiterated proudly Naught had power to make him quail; Yet when thunder roared too loudly He would turn a trifle pale. And he turned a little paler When there came a sudden squall; For this funny little sailor Was ridiculously small! And whenever a storm portended He would take himself below. So much fear and courage blended Did a pirate ever show? DRAW IT! Draw the Pirate Poodle's fearsome pirate flag…

swan lake

Once upon a time, in the grounds of a magnificent palace, a queen threw a spectacular birthday party for her dear son Prince Siegfried. Siegfried was about to turn twenty-one, which meant he would now be king. But instead of feeling excited about it, he was filled with dread. He wasn’t ready to take on such a demanding job. All Prince Siegfried wanted to do was dance and laugh with his friends, and forget all about his responsibilities. However, the queen had other ideas. “Siegfried, it’s time to stop celebrating and start thinking about your future. There are many princesses here tonight. Who will be your bride?” All night long, princesses had been vying for the prince’s attention. He sighed deeply, “I always hoped to marry someone I loved, Mother, not someone I had…

the fox and the grapes

It was late summer and, in the vineyard, bunches of fat, juicy grapes hung heavy from the highest branches, glistening in the sunlight. A fox was strolling across the field when she spotted the fruit. Her mouth watered. “Those grapes look so sweet and delicious,” she thought. “Perfect for quenching my thirst.” She checked there were no humans around and then she stood below a branch and leapt as high as she could. She just missed. The grapes were too far out of her reach. “Hmmm, a little run up is all it needs,” she said. So she stepped back a few paces and took a running jump at the grapes. Again, she fell just shy of the feast, but the grapes gleamed so temptingly and looked so juicy and ready to burst, she…
