Little Red Riding Hood
Little Red Riding Hood lived in a wood with her mother. One day Little Red Riding Hood went to visit her granny. She had a nice cake in her basket. On her way Little Red Riding Hood met a wolf. “Hello!” said the wolf. “Where are
“I’m going to see my grandmother. She lives in a house behind those trees.” The wolf ran to Granny’s house and ate Granny up. He got into Granny’s bed. A little later, Little Red Riding Hood reached the house.
She looked at the wolf. “Granny, what big eyes you have!”
“All the better to see you with!” said the wolf. “Granny, what big ears you have!”
“All the better to hear you with!” said the wolf. “Granny, what a big nose you have!”
“All the better to smell you with!” said the wolf. “Granny, what big teeth you have!”
“All the better to eat you with!” shouted the wolf. A woodcutter was in the wood. He heard a loud scream and ran to the house. The woodcutter hit the wolf over the head. The wolf opened his mouth wide and shouted and Granny jumped out. The wolf ran away and Little Red Riding Hood never saw the wolf
The hungry dragon
Deep in the mountains lived a dragon.
Every hundred years he wakes up. He is very hungry.
“I want some breakfast,” he said.
He went down the mountain to the village.
He saw a boy. “Yum, a boy for breakfast!”
“Don’t eat me!” said Sia. “I’ll give you some food.”
Sia took the dragon to his house.
He ate three plates of chicken and rice.
“I’m still hungry,” said the dragon.
Sia gave the dragon more food.
He ate five plates of noodles and ten sausages.
He was still hungry!
They went to the restaurant.
The dragon ate twenty meatballs and fifty fish balls with twelve plates of sticky rice.
After that he ate six puddings and a cake.
He was still hungry!
They went to the shop.
The dragon ate all the fruit and vegetables: mangoes and cabbages, tomatoes, mushrooms and beans.
He was still a bit hungry!
Sia looked in his pocket.
There was one sweet. He gave the sweet to the dragon.
The dragon exploded!
“Hooray!” shouted Sia. The dragon is gone! No more boys for breakfast!”
It was nearly Christmas. Katie woke up and found that the world was white and magical.
“Snow!” she shouted, “Snow for Christmas!”
She ran outside and danced in the snow.
Her brother Eddie came out too. They made a big round snowball and a small one. They put them together and made a huge snowman.
On Christmas Eve they looked at the snowman. He waved at them. He was alive!
“Hello.” he said. “It’s Christmas. Would you like a present?”
“Yes please!” they said.
The snowman waved his arms. Silver crystal snowflakes filled the sky. It was so beautiful.
“We must give you a present too,” said Katie.
They gave the snowman a carrot for a nose, a scarf for his neck, and a hat for his head.
“Happy Christmas!” they said.
The snow stopped and the sun came out. The snowman started to melt.
“Goodbye” he said. “Build me again next year!”
What’s that noise?
“Who’s making that tweet? I’m trying to sleep.”
“It’s not the fish.”
“It must be the bird.”
“Who’s making that bark?”
“It’s coming from the park.”
“It’s not the monkey.”
“It must be the dog.”
“Who’s making that baa?”
“They can’t be far.”
“Is it the cow?”
“No, it’s the sheep.”
“Now who’s making that noise?”
“No, it’s daddy, he’s fast asleep.”
Ali and the magic carpet
One very hot day Ali finds a carpet in his uncle’s shop.
Suddenly the carpet jumps! It moves and flies off into the air.
“Hey! What’s happening?”
A loud booming voice comes from the carpet.
“Welcome, O master. I am a magic carpet.”
First they fly high up into the sky and then they land in a jungle. It is hot and wet and it’s raining.
Then they fly to the desert. It is very, very hot and dry.
“It is very, very hot today!”
After that they fly to the South Pole. There is lots of ice and snow. It’s freezing.
“Where are we now? I can’t see!”
“In the mountains. Can you see me?”
“It’s very foggy.”
Then they fly to a forest. It’s very windy there.
“Oh, it’s windy in the forest!”
Then they fly to an island in the sea. There is thunder and lightning.
“Aaagh! Let’s go home!”
“What a storm!”
Finally they fly back home. The carpet lands in the shop and Ali gets off.
“Wow! What an adventure!”
