daddy bear's hair

Spring was springing in Storyland, and it was time for the three bears to leave their beds after a long snoozy winter. Baby Bear was up first. He ran into his parents' room. “Time to get up, Mummy and Daddy! The sun is shining and spring is here!” Mummy Bear yawned and stretched and stuck a paw out of the covers. She put on her slippers and said, “Let’s have porridge to celebrate. Wake up, Daddy Bear!” Daddy Bear grumbled and groaned and snuggled deep under the covers. “Too cold!” he moaned. “Come on, Daddy!” said Baby Bear. “It’s not cold. It looks lovely outside.” With a twinkle in his eye, he crept over to Daddy Bear’s side of the bed and tugged off the covers – then he shrieked and jumped back in surprise. Mummy…

edith the inventor

Edith was an inventor – the best inventor in town. Well, almost. Most of her inventions still needed some work! Edith’s amazing self-closing cat flap was brilliant – if only it hadn’t shut just when the cat was halfway through! And Edith’s whistle for calling her dog was wonderful. It was just a shame that everyone else’s dogs came running too when she blew it. When Edith heard there was a competition to invent a brand-new machine, she had to enter. Her idol, the famous inventor Jenny Rocket, was going to be the judge! Edith plotted and planned and, every day after school, she rushed home to work on her incredible invention. At last it was finished – just in time for the competition. Edith stood back to admire her machine. It was…

sir lancelot's quest

Sir Lancelot was the bravest knight at King Arthur’s Round Table, but he was very rarely at Camelot because he was nearly always on a quest. The other knights longed to be as strong and courageous as Lancelot and wished they could join him. One day, this wish came true for Sir Lionel, who was Sir Lancelot’s young nephew. “Mount your horse,” said Sir Lancelot. “Let’s seek an adventure.” Sir Lionel was greatly honoured to be asked and rode off with Sir Lancelot into the green forest and over the hills beyond. The sun was beating down and the two knights felt hot in their armour, so they stopped for a rest in the shade of a large tree. Sir Lancelot decided to take a nap, so Sir Lionel kept guard. It wasn’t long before…

the clothes line

Hand in hand they dance in a row,Hither and thither, and to and fro, Flip! Flap! Flop! And away they go –Fluttering creatures as white as snow. Like restive horses they caper and prance;Like fairy-tale witches they wildly dance;Rounded in front, but hollow behind,They shiver and skip in the merry March wind. One I saw dancing excitedly,Struggling so wildly till she was free,Then, leaving pegs and clothes line behind her,She flew like a bird, and no one can find her. I saw her gleam, like a sail, in the sun,Flipping and flapping and flopping for fun.Nobody knows where she can now be,Hid in a ditch, or drowned in the sea. She was my handkerchief not long ago,But she'll never come back to my pocket, I know.…

Many years ago China was under attack by a fierce army of invaders, so the Emperor decreed that one man from every family must join the army and fight for his country. Huan Hu lived in a village in the north. He had once been a great general, but he was now too old and frail to go to war. His only son was still a toddler and he had a teenage daughter, Mulan, but women weren’t allowed to join the army. The whole family was deeply unhappy because they all knew Huan Hu would never survive another war. It worried Mulan so much that she couldn’t sleep at night. When the day came for him to leave, Mulan spoke up. “Father, I have learnt so much from you. You have taught me…

the ape king

Long ago, two men set out to travel around the world. One of the men always spoke the truth, and the other often told lies. One day the men came to the land of the apes, which was ruled over by the Ape King. They had heard much about this country, and were curious to see it for themselves. However, when the Ape King heard humans were intruding on his land, he ordered his soldiers to capture them. The Ape King was proud and vain, so before the men were brought before him, he demanded the other apes kneel down and bow to him. And though he usually spent his days in the trees, he decided to sit on a throne so he could look more important. When everything looked just right, the Ape…
