zebly titan and the mystery of glop!

It was another fine day in Megaminster-on-the-Wold. The sun was shining, the birds were tweeting, and down in the park dogs were running around in circles. However, up on the roof of the town hall, the superhero Zebly Titan was brooding. “From high above, the mighty Zebly Titan surveys Megaminster. When his home planet and family mysteriously disappeared, this superhero journeyed to Earth and became a champion of justice. A lone hero with no friends and one enemy: EVIL!” Unfortunately, Zebly’s cool speech was interrupted by his friend, Supercorn Bob. “Hey, Zebly, I know you like brooding and making cool speeches about yourself, but we still have to patrol the city and I have a dentist’s appointment this afternoon…” Even though he liked the idea of being a mysterious lone superhero, Zebly did have…

the jackal and the camel

One evening, they planned to raid a farm on the far side of a mighty river. The jackal could not swim, but the camel said, “Do not worry – you can ride on my hump while I swim across!” So that night, the camel waded into the water with the jackal upon his back, then swam across the river and carried his friend safely to the other side. The camel went into the farm fields and began to feast upon the spinach and corn and millet, but he ate slowly, for such food takes a lot of chewing! Meanwhile, the jackal slipped quietly into the henhouse, took a chicken, and gulped it down quickly. Then, satisfied, he strolled over to where the camel was still halfway through his meal, and said, “My…

the birthday of the fairy queen

She lived in a tiny stone cottage with her loving family, and her granny used to tell her stories about the fairy folk who lived beneath the earth and liked to meet by the peaceful little pool in the woods, just down the hill from the cottage. Even though her life was happy, Nora was a little bit gloomery. What does that mean? It means that she was a little bit sad, and Nora did tend to mope when her work was too hard or her family was too busy to pay attention to her. On such days, she liked to go down to the little pond and sit on the nice big rock that was warmed by the sun. On one such day, when Nora was feeling gloomery, she went down…

the mermaid and the boy

The sailors could not free the ship, and the storm waves pounded away at it. It seemed as if the ship would soon be broken apart by the sea, and everyone aboard would drown. It was then that the mighty Mermaid Queen appeared, balancing on the stormy waves, and spoke to the king. “Your majesty! I can save your ship and your lives – but in return you must give me your first-born son!” The king yelled back over the noise of the storm, “But I have no son!” The mermaid said, “One day you will, and you must give him to me!” The king did not want to give up his heir, but then a mighty wave broke over the ship and water began to flood into the hold. What good would it…

old macdonald had a farmers’ market!

Henny Penny went to Old MacDonald’s house in a panic. “How can you go away like this?” squawked the chicken. “We will all starve, just you wait!” Old MacDonald continued putting things in his travelling trunk – his best kilt, his sporran and his tam o’ shanter. “Don’t worry about that!” said the farmer as he squeezed his bagpipe into the trunk, which made the pipes squeal and tootle. “Why don’t you and the other Storylanders use my market stall to sell the food you make? I’m sure you have plenty of eggs that you could sell?” Henny Penny thought this was a great idea! When Old MacDonald left, she ran around Storytown, clucking, “Bring your food to sell at Old MacDonald’s stall tomorrow! Bring your food to sell at Old MacDonald’s stall tomorrow!” The…
