My eight year old granddaughter is very creative. She loves drawing and painting and has won prizes for her pictures. She also loves reading and writing. She has written lots of stories on the computer and she sent me this one recently. I hope you like it. I just love those tips at the end!
The Adventure Story by Emilia
Once upon a time there lived a girl in the mountains called Charlie. She lived in a cottage with her mum, her dad and her sister Lily. One day Charlie went off into the mountains on her own and she found a dark, scary, spooky cave. She shouted ‘˜HELLO’! her voice echoed.
“I wonder who lives here?” said Charlie. Then she quietly wandered off into the cave.
But Charlie did not know that a witch lived in a cottage just outside the cave which she had just passed.
“Hello,” said a croaky voice.
“Hello, I’m Charlie,” said Charlie.
“Come into my cottage,” said the witch.
But in the cottage there were potions.
Charlie got scared and she just had to RUN. She ran all the way home and told her mum everything that happened.
“You shouldn’t go off on your own,” said her mum
“Yer,” said Lily.
“Don’t be mean, Lily,” snapped her Dad.
And ever since this happened Charlie had been safe.
Charlie’s top tips for staying safe
- NEVER accept a letter from people you don’t know.
- NEVER walk with a stranger.
- NEVER go in a stranger’s house or car.
