the incredible pet project

Mum was in a hurry as usual, but as she rushed them down the street, the twins couldn’t resist peeking through the window of the pet shop on the corner. Mina’s favourite was one of the golden retriever puppies in the window, but Magnus had his eye on the calico kitten in the back… “Mum, are you SURE we can’t have a doggie?” Mina said as she stared into the puppy’s big brown eyes through the dusty window. “NO! Daddy is allergic to cats and dogs!” said Mum as she hustled them off down the pavement. Five minutes later, they were outside Magnus and Mina’s grandad’s place – an old repair garage on a road just off the high street. Grandad had retired, but he lived in the flat above and kept the workshop for…

the stag’s reflection

Of all the animals that lived in the forest, none was prouder than the mighty stag – and the thing he was most proud of was his magnificent antlers. As he strutted through the forest one fine morning, all of the other animals admired his antlers, each of which had five splendid points. While he was walking down a hill, a sleepy sloth-bear blinked at him and said, “Why, your great crown is the pride of the forest!” The stag was pleased, but he was too snooty to answer a sloth-bear! The next animal that the stag met was a rhinoceros. “I wish I had horns half as grand as yours!” grumbled the rhino as she looked cross-eyed at the one stumpy horn that grew on her nose. As the deer came down to the river,…

the boy who liked bugs

Some two hundred years ago, there was a boy named Charles who lived with his family in a big fancy house in the country. His favourite place was the garden, where he could run around and find creepy-crawlies. When he wasn’t pestering the gardener with questions about how plants grew, the skinny rosy-cheeked lad was out exploring. There was a glasshouse full of amazing tropical plants, a wood to wander in, and beyond that the river, where he could find tadpoles and catch newts with his net on lazy summer days. What Charles loved more than anything was collecting stuff. He would hunt for bugs under rocks, climb trees to find birds’ eggs and dig for interesting stones. It was much more exciting than learning about maths and Latin at school! Soon his bedroom…

what happened next....

The boy in this story is Charles Darwin – he would grow up to be the most famous naturalist in history. His interest in the natural world led to him being invited to go on a scientific voyage around the world. On 27th December 1831, Darwin left England on the HMS Beagle and set off on an amazing five-year journey. On the way, he would find fossils, study the rocks of distant lands and collect samples of thousands of fascinating birds, insects and animals. The amazing things that Charles Darwin discovered on his travels would change the way people thought about the history of the world and its creatures! His discoveries would also inspire him to write a book called On the Origin of Species, which was about his idea that living…

wee willie in the woods!

Wee Willie Winkie ran through the town, up stairs and down stairs in his nightgown, tapping on the window and crying through the lock, “Are the children in their bed, for it’s past ten o’clock?” However, on that evening, all of the children in town were sleeping peacefully. Even little baby Angus and Dora and Donall McGinty had gone to bed without causing a ruckus. With all the kids fast asleep, Wee Willie wasn’t sure what to do. But then he had an idea: he should check that all of the baby animals were slumbering peacefully as well. So Wee Willie Winkie set off across the fields and into the woods in his slippers and nightcap, with only the light of his candlestick for company. He wriggled into a fox den under the…

the princess in the wooden petticoat

In days long past, when people wore bronze and wolf-skins, in the land that would one day be the Netherlands, there was a small village on a sandbank. That village was ruled by a strong and wise king. The king had a daughter, and she had a fierce temper. She would go on adventures in the woods and swamps, and come back with her blonde curly hair all tangled and matted. Her nurse had to comb the tangles out of her hair with a stone comb, but the girl did not take kindly to this. She would struggle and scream and even call her nurse a ‘she-aurochs’, which was a kind of wild shaggy cow that lived in the wilderness nearby. After the nurse had combed her hair, the hot-tempered girl would run…
