the car that went far

Edison – Ed for short – was a zippy electric car. He had shiny paintwork, a sleek streamlined shape, smart wheels and headlights that looked like he meant business. He had only been parked outside his new owner’s house for a few minutes when he heard the other cars in the street whispering about him. “What’s that funny thing sticking in his side?” he heard a family car say. “Maybe he’s sick,” suggested an old sports car. “It can’t be petrol. I have to drive all the way to the garage to fill up.” “I’m fine, thanks,” said Ed. “It’s just my charger. My driver has to plug me in and charge me up with electricity before I can move.” “You mean you don’t glug delicious petrol?” cried the sports car. “Don’t need it,” said Ed.…

the sleeping knights

Once a young farmer led his cattle all the way from Wales to London to sell. It was a difficult journey as this was long before the days of cars and trains. The farmer did well and sold his cattle. He was heading over London Bridge feeling pleased with himself when an old man in long robes approached him. “Where are you from?” asked the old man. “Wales,” said the farmer. The old man smiled and said, “I thought so. I recognise the staff you’re carrying. In fact, I even remember the hazel tree it came from, but I have forgotten how to get there.” The farmer didn’t believe him. “How could you know the tree? It is on the land behind my farm. This stick could be from any hazel tree.” “Believe me,” said the…

the princess and the pea soup

Everybody in Storyland knew that Princess Meribel was a real princess. She had proved it when she slept on a bed of forty mattresses and quilts, and still felt a tiny pea hidden at the bottom. Prince Peter was overjoyed to have found a real princess, but Princess Meribel was starting to wonder whether she had found a true prince. Prince Peter always left his dirty socks on the floor, burped loudly after eating, and seemed to have forgotten that it was their first wedding anniversary soon. She was certain that a real prince would remember. One day, Princess Meribel decided, “Prince Peter tested me to see if I was a true princess, so it’s only fair that I test him too.” She invited her princess friends for afternoon tea and asked, “What…

masha and the bear

Once upon a time a little girl called Masha lived happily with her grandmother, grandfather and pet dogs in a little red cottage next to a big forest. One day, Masha’s friends knocked at her door. “We’re going berry picking in the forest. Would you like to come?” “Please, Grandma and Grandpa, can I go?” begged Masha. “Very well,” said her grandmother, “But make sure you stay together. We don’t want you to get lost!” So Masha petted her dogs goodbye, picked up her basket and followed her friends into the forest. There were so many plump berries to pick! The deeper they went into the trees, the bigger and juicier the berries got. Masha was so busy trying to find the ripest, sweetest fruit she strayed from the path and got separated from her…

thunder and lightning

Long ago in southern Nigeria, Thunder and Lightning lived among the ordinary people like you and me. Thunder was an old sheep and her son Lightning was a young ram. The king made them live at the far end of the village because of Lightning’s fierce temper. When he was in a bad mood, everybody knew it. He stormed around striking the ground with sparks of anger. He felled trees, burnt bushes and damaged precious crops. Mother Thunder grew so frustrated with her son’s bad behaviour, she shouted at him, pleading for him to stop. “Come back here now!” she rumbled. “Look at the mess you’re making. Stop embarrassing yourself!” Mother Thunder’s shouts were so loud, the whole village shook and shuddered. People ran into their houses, fearing for their lives. What made it…
