It was whilst Katie was reading ‘The Big Friendly Giant’ in her very special and very secret reading tent under the apple tree in her garden that Keith the Croc crawled out of the lake only a few metres away. Katie was far too busy enjoying her very favourite chocolate buttons to notice Keith slithering into the tent, reaching out his jagged claws and snatching Katie’s Chocolate Buttons with one claw and grabbing Katie with the other! He took Katie away and threw her into an abandoned prison that was haunted by the ghosts of prisoners who never made it out again. Keith sat in front of Katie with rusty bars separating them and he ate her Chocolate Buttons one by one very slowly teasing her horribly. Katie cried and fogged up her red glasses, which was okay because she didn’t want to see Keith eating all her wonderful Chocolate Buttons anyway.
Eventually sleep consumed Keith and he fell back snoring very loudly. Katie took her chance to find help and looked for whatever she could in the damp and dingy cell to send a message out to her friend, Peter Pan. She found a scrap of paper, a rock and old milk bottle – she used the rock’s edge to write a message on the paper and stuffed it into the bottle and threw it out the window hoping a little bit of magic would carry it to Peter Pan. Just before this moment, in Never Never Land, Peter Pan was helping the Lost Boys build a new tree house by flying all the materials from the bottom of the tree to the top. On his way up he felt a sharp thud behind his left ear, lost his balance and crashed landed on top of all the materials. Everything was broken, except for a milk bottle sitting on top of his chest with not a scratch on it. He read the message inside and raced out of Never Never Land to the abandoned prison to save Katie. He snuck through a broken window but how was he going to get past Keith the Croc without him waking up? Peter Pan tried tip toeing but Keith started to stir from his sleep, so he tried flying but skimmed Keith’s tail and woke him up! Peter Pan quickly flew out of sight and wracked his brain to how he was going to get past Keith without being seen! Tinkerbell! Her Pixie Dust! He had a pinch left and sprinkled it on the middle of his chest. He wished to help Katie and soon the tops of his fingers started to disappear and the ends of his shoes too! Everything about him was fading fast until he was completely invisible! Peter Pan confidently strolled past Keith picking up the key, unlocking the cell and whisking Katie far, far away from the ghoulish prison and greedy Keith the Croc.
“DON’T WORRY I’LL TAKE YOU HOME” ASSURED PETER PAN WHILST HIM AND KATIE WERE FLYING AT SUPER SPEED BACK TO HER VERY SPECIAL AND VERY SECRET READING TENT. SUDDENLY, A HUGE NET STARTED TO ENGULF THE PAIR AND PETER PAN DIVED TO GET UNDERNEATH IT BUT THEY HAD ALREADY BEEN SCOOPED UP LIKE A TINY, LITTLE BUTTERFLY. THEY HAD BEEN CAUGHT BY SOMETHING GASTRONOMICALLY GIGANTIC! IT WAS DRIPPING WITH CHEESE AND OILY TOMATO SAUCE AND HAD HUGE, SMELLY PEPPERONI ALL OVER IT. THE PIZZA MONSTER HAD CAUGHT HIS LUNCH AND HE WAS GOING TO TURN KATIE INTO A HAWAIIAN FEAST AND PETER AND INTO A DEEP PAN PIZZA OF COURSE! KATIE COULD DO NOTHING, SHE HATED PINEAPPLE TOO! PETER PAN COULDN’T RIP THROUGH THE NET AND HAD RUN OUT OF PIXIE DUST SO HE CALLED FOR HIS FRIEND SUPERGIRL. HE PERFORMED THE EMERGENCY SUPERHERO SIREN AND SOON ENOUGH A THUNDERSTORM BEGAN, CLOUDS DARKENED, RAIN FELL AND LIGHTNING STRUCK. IN ONE LOUD CLAP, SUPERGIRL BOLTED INTO THE SCENE AND SHE HAD ARRIVED ESPECIALLY EXTRA HUNGRY. “YOU WANNA PIZZA ME?” BOOMED THE PIZZA MONSTER SUPERGIRL HAD ALREADY STARTED GOBBLED UP HIS STUFFED CRUST. “NO, I’LL HAVE ALL OF YOU” WAFFLED SUGERGIRL IN BETWEEN MOUTHFULS. PETER PAN AND KATIE RAN OUT OF THE NET AND THANKED SUPERGIRL FOR HER IMPRESSIVE APPETITE AND KATIE WANTED TO HOST A PARTY FOR BOTH THEM AND THEIR FRIENDS TO SHOW HER GRATITUDE. IT WAS GOING TO BE IN HER VERY SPECIAL AND NOT-SO-SECRET READING TENT.
HOWEVER, KEITH THE CROC WAS SO LIVID FROM BEING BEATEN BY PETER PAN AND KATIE HE WAS PLANNING HIS REVENGE. HE WATCHED AS THEY ALL DEFEATED THE PIZZA MONSTER AND SLYLY FOLLOWED THEM BACK TO KATIE’S READING TENT. WHILST THEY WERE DANCING ALONG TO ‘UPTOWN FUNK’, KEITH THE CROC CRAWLED BACK IN, RAISED HIS JAGGED CLAWS ONE MORE TIME AND JUST AT THAT MOMENT SUPERGIRL WAS PERFORMING HER SUPER KICK MOVE TO “I’M TOO HOT, HOT DAMN!”. SHE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW BUT SHE KICKED KEITH THE CROC SO HARD THAT HE FLEW RIGHT OUT OF THE TENT, ALONG THE GARDEN, OVER THE MEADOWS, THROUGH THE INDUSTRIAL YARD AND INTO THE ABANDONED PRISON. HE LANDED EXACTLY WHERE HE HAD BEGUN EXCEPT THIS TIME HE WAS LOCKED IN – AND BEHIND THE WRONG SIDE OF THE BARS.
Picture an early morning in a forest that is just waking up. The ground is wet with dew, and all the birds are beginning to make a lot of noise with their morning calls. There is a small pond, overrun with moss, you almost can’t see it with all the greenery guarding it like tall castle walls. Splash! The water’s surface has been disturbed by a frog. By Rosie in fact! She is a very special frog coloured purple and red, so you can always spot her swimming in the mornings. You can even spot her if you were flying high above the pond amongst the top branches and leaves. And indeed, a pixie whilst on her morning fly did spot Rosie from that high up! It was Tinkerbell, THE TINKERBELL, who stopped and flew down to Rosie and joined her swimming. They raced each other up and down the pond, played marco polo and tried their luck at synchronized swimming. They were having so much fun that all of Tinkerbell’s pixie dust fell to the bottom of the pond and into the soggy, muddy bottom. She couldn’t get out of the pond, she was stuck treading water as she couldn’t fly anywhere. Before the two of them started to panic, Rosie knew that she could help, she didn’t need to fly she could hop anywhere she wanted! Tinkerbell gave her instructions to go the Red Wood where she’ll find an enchanted train that will be carrying plenty of pixie dust. It was pulling into the Red Wood station in 5 mins, so she had to hurry!
Rosie speedily hopped out of the pond out of her woodland, across the clearing into the Red Wood. She saw the train and pounced for the pixie dust, but suddenly a Netherbeast appeared. It had huge horns, pointy and very sharp claws. It howled and reached for one of the carriages holding the dust but the train shot away before Rosie or the Netherbeast could get their hands on it. Rosie was in danger and she needed to think fast otherwise she would be the next victim of the infamous Netherbeast. The Red Wood gets it’s name from the red trees within it, they are all a rich, bright red with all sorts of green leaves. Perfect for Rosie as she can camouflage herself onto the tree. She was half red anyway and was able to change all her purple parts to red. The Netherbeast could not see her and was circling the trees trying to sniff her out, but then it slowed down and started to yawn. It slumped down next to Rosie’s tree and shut it’s eyes. Rosie noticed that the trees were shaking and little white dots were falling from the leaves. The trees had awoken and realizing Rosie was in danger they covered the Netherbeast in their sleeping powder. Yet, there was still a problem, the Netherbeast was still underneath Rosie, she was never going to able to get around him and she started to cry and worry about poor Tinkerbell stuck in the pond. The Trees didn’t like to see Rosie upset and whispered between themselves until one cleared it’s throat and said:
“Why did the scarecrow win an award?...Because he was outstanding in his field!”
Rosie wasn’t sure if it was meant to be funny or if the joke was so bad it was funny but she politely chuckled anyway. Before Rosie could hear the second joke, a low rumbling roar came from in front of them. Two golden animals were running right at them and their roaring was getting very loud. The Netherbeast started to stir at the noise but was still in a daze from the ton of sleeping powder on him. The golden creatures were lions and it was Leo and Mar, they have a long history with the Netherbeast and at this point they were not getting on too well. They were a metre away from the Netherbeast and were roaring so loud that Rosie had to cover her ears. The Netherbeast ran off while he had the chance and Rosie was able to jump down and thank the Lions. Leo and Mar directed her to where the pixie train had hidden itself and she quickly send her goodbyes and hopped towards the train.
By the time she had got back to the pond, Tinkerbell had found a drifting leaf from a water lily and was using it for support. Rosie sprinkled the pixie dust onto Tinkerbell and she shot up through the branches and out the top of the forest to dry off in the Sunshine. When Tinkerbell returned, they both decided to explore other parts of the forest and to find the perfect spot to build the perfect treehouse, away from any ponds!
There once was an alien who was silver all over and had green hands, feet and head. They were all perfectly round like circles except on each hand he 3 fingers and 1 thumb and on each foot just 2 toes. His name was Frederick and he lived on the most famous planet outside of our solar system, it was the planet Charlie’s Toe of course! Today Freddy was looking out his window at a cluster of brown cats. They were dancing and it seemed to Freddy like they were having plenty of fun. He wanted to join in and started jumping in circles in his bedroom, jumping to his own beat and rhythm. His window was open, the brown cats could hear Freddy having a lot more fun than them, so they came to his window to see who had so rudely interrupted their dance. Meanwhile, Freddy was getting carried with his jumping, jumping high, jumping low, twisting and turning whichever way he wanted. The cats soon joined in, but they had their own ideas. They started to meow and dance around Freddy, they were actually chanting for a huge monster to appear! Oblivious to this monster chant, Freddy joined in unaware of who was going to turn up. Thunder started to rumble and the glass in the Freddy’s window shattered and the Sun lost it’s light for just a second. When the Sun’s rays filled the room again, a Werewolf was crouching by the window. It crept towards Freddy but something else appeared. Udders! The Werewolf had udders! It was a Cowolf, only ever talked about but never seen! The cats had summoned the great Cowolf to help them take over Charlie’s Toe. Cowolf was very angry he had been brought there for such silly desires and started to howl and snarl getting ready to show why he was a monster indeed. Meanwhile, Freddy was still playing catch up and by the time he realised his life was in danger the brown cats had already pawed it away from Cowolf. Freddy pleaded for his life and tried to reel out his best/worst (it’s a matter of opinion) jokes to befriend Cowolf.
Freddy wimpered “What do you call a lost wolf?..... A where-wolf!”
Cowolf stopped. Assessed Freddy and chuckled “That was terrible but lucky for you I don’t eat my greens. Drink?”
Cowolf, as a gesture of friendship offered Freddy a bucket of milk from his own udders. Struck dumb by his luck, Freddy accepted the gift heartily, took one hesitant sip and then put it to the side, as he thought it would be rude to drink it all in one go. Freddy and Cowolf got into long and deep conversations that afternoon, they talked about themselves, their dreams and plans for the weekend. But the room starts to rumble again like before, both of them are nearly swept off their feet and out of the window. A very powerful tornado was sucking them out of Freddy’s house. But I didn’t mention earlier that Freddy has suction cups in the palms of his perfectly round hands on the tips of his fingers and toes. With Cowolf on his back he crawled (or suction cupped) to his basement and into a secret passage that lead deep underground where they were safe…for now. Whilst Cowolf was searching around for any other passages he stubbed his toe on a trunk. It was unlocked. At first Cowolf could only see darkness when he opened the trunk, he stuck his nose in further he couldn’t see the bottom, he thought it was empty but them he bumped his nose on a cold surface. He dragged his claws along it’s metal seal and found a handle. It opened a hatch, a hatch to a rocket. Freddy rushed over and knew exactly what as was going on. This was the enchanted trunk that could fit anything in it just like Mary Poppin’s bottomless carpet bag or the Hogwart’s room of requirement. And it seemed this one held a rocket. They both hopped in and started the engines, they powered up and blew through all the soil and cement above them and broke through the ground. Straight through the tornado and past the atmosphere of Charlie’s Toe into Space. They had an unlimited supply of fuel so they decided to check out the far away and very trendy planet, Earth. However, on their arrival the FBI and Men in Black were already waiting for them with all sorts of regulations and rules about visiting Earth. Instead, Freddy and Cowolf invited the both teams to Charlie’s Toe for a working holiday! And that’s another whole story!
In Brasil there is a very special dog. She is so special because today she came first place in the most difficult and strenuous triathlon of Brasil! Her name is Duska and she was wore her gold medal with pride. She would only take it off to have a shower. She had left it under her pillow for safekeeping but when she returned to her room, it was gone! She frantically searched all over the house for it and used her nose to sniff out where it was taken or who had taken it. Duska started to doubt herself, she thought maybe she hadn’t brought the medal back to her house at all, maybe it had fallen off her on the way home. She retraced her steps keeping her eyes on the ground desperately searching for any glint of gold. But there was no clues or signs of where it had gone, she retraced her steps so far back that she was at the finish line again of the triathlon.
Now let me introduce you to another runner in the race that did not come first or second or even fifty third, this runner came last in the race and was very upset. Her name is Ellis and she was Duska’s owner. In her bitterness and embarrassment that her dog beat her in the race she stole Duska’s medal from under her pillow! She hid all her dog food too! Ellis watched Duska as she frantically turned the whole house upside down for her medal and ran out the house to see if she had dropped it. But when Duska returned home, Ellis confronted her at the front door and revealed what she had the gold medal all along. Well this really surprised Duska, at first as she thought this was quite an extreme practical joke but she soon realised that Ellis was not going to give her medal back. Duska could feel a fiery ball of anger starting in her stomach, growing bigger and bigger until Duska could not control it anymore and leapt forward biting Ellis on the arm! Duska had never felt rage like this before and after she had bitten Ellis she felt like she was coming out of a daze. Ellis’ arm had teeth marks in it, and from the marks blood started to flow out onto their doorstep. And soon Ellis’ eyes started to flow with tears, dropping onto their doorstep as well. Duska was so sorry and quickly helped bandage Ellis’ arm. Once, her arm had stopped throbbing and she had stopped crying she was also very sorry for stealing from Duska and taking out her bad mood out on her dog. Ellis apologised and returned the medal to Duska. And her food too! As a way to start their friendship again Ellis asked Duska if she could help train her for the next triathlon, Duska smiled and say yes.
There is a woodland that covers hundreds of acres of land and right in the middle is a secret castle. If you walk through it's grand entrance, continue down the hallway and go through second door on the left and follow the steps down, you’ll find a cosy closet. In that closet, lives a 7 year old girl called Princess. Prinny for short. Her favourite colour is orange and today she is playing with her musical toys in the living room. However, today she is a little tired of her toys and looks for other things in the room for inspiration. She finds little bits and bobs here and there but nothing grabs her attention until she finds her father's match box. The same match she has been specifically told not to touch! Of course Prinny, while her Dad isn't watching, takes out a match and makes the decision that a little flame that would last only a few seconds could be no danger. Besides, she had watched her Dad do it before, and nothing had gone disastrously wrong then. However, I would have no story to tell if there was only a flame. As soon as Prinny struck the match against the rough side of the box, a flash of white light filled the living room, through the hallway, up into the towers reaching into every corner of the castle. Prinny opened her eyes. The roof of the castle had completely blown off and from later findings I can tell you that it had catapulted all the way to Mars! But Prinny had much bigger problems to solve, much BIGGER! She noticed that she was lying on the floor and her arms, legs and head felt very heavy. She went to feel her long auburn hair but it wasn't there! In it's place she could only feel rough, coarse scales. She started to run her hands all over her body - she was covered in charcoal coloured scales, and her hands weren't hands at all but claws. Her torso was shaped like a pumpkin too! She wanted to jump and start screaming but something was getting in the way. A tail. It was so big it couldn’t fit in the living room and ran out through the grand entrance, straight into the woodland and out the otherside, crossing borders and oceans into another country, another continent. You could find the tip to the tail wrapped around the pyramids in Egypt. She soon realised that when she wiggled her tail it would take another 3 months for the tip of the tail to start wiggling too! We don’t know what happened when Prinny struck the match to change her from a little girl into a mixture of dragon and pumpkin, an odd combo. From now on, we'll call her DragPump instead.
She yelled for her father but no one came to help. He was actually hanging from a tree by his shirt in the surrounding woodland because he'd been hurled out of the castle from the growth spurt of DragPump's tail that had wacked him far away. DragPump knew she would have to solve this on her own - well she did get herself into this mess! She started to wiggle and take her first steps as a Dragon Pumpkin hybrid. After taking her first flight and getting used her new dragon self she didn't really know what to do next, after all she was only 7! DragPump remembered the Circus she had seen the weekend before and pictured all the other animals having lots of fun in the shows, she thought maybe she could give it a go. And of course, she quickly became the star of the Circus, making huge headlines of her fire breathing talents and especially about her ginormous tail! The Circus may have been doing a European tour but her tail was still in Egypt minding it's own business! This pulled in many people to see the humongous moving miracle! Tourists would use the Tail Trail and trek across Egypt to the Pyramids with DragPump's tail as their guide. Commuters would use it as a bridge to get from Egypt to the south of Italy and would walk. cycle and drive along her tail. There was also another group of individuals who were cutting the scales of DragPump's tail and selling them on the black market as jewellery, clothing and in soup! There was a demand for the magical healing powers within dragon soup. DragPump did not like this and began flicking and swiping her tail across the whole of Egypt, flicking away all the horrible poachers. Soon innocent citizens and tourists were getting caught in her Tail attacks and crying for her to stop! She didn't how to keep her tail safe, or just to keep it out of the way. The people at the end of her tail helped to wrap it into a coil and then everyone along the middle of it, coiled the tail further until it was right by DragPump's feet and she could tie it into a nice, neat and controllable bun.
Happy she did not have to worry about her tail, DragPump then started to worry about her Father, in all this commotion she had forgotten she had not seen him since she was turned into a dragon. She began to fly back to her castle, she looked upstairs, downstairs and in every closet but she couldn't find him. Woodlands were her next search but by this point her Father was no longer hanging from that tree. Her search began to take days, weeks, months and years until she searched the whole of the planet but he was still nowhere to be found. She cried and wailed for her Father to appear and screamed out to the sky in desperation. It was at this moment she saw a place she hadn't searched. Space. She wiped away her tears and flew up, up, up, past the clouds, past Earth's atmosphere and into the stars. She ventured to a Galaxy called Plankapun, a very important Galaxy where she immediately asked the first aliens she met if they had seen her Father. After a lengthy discussion amongst themselves they revealed to DragPump they had come across a man sitting on his own on a small planet not too far from them. DragPump scooped them up in one swoop and raced towards the planet. She was breathing hard from tiredness and desperation and her heart was beating double time. The man looked sad...and slightly worried at the dragon that was flying right at him. It was her Father, after years of searching, she had found him. But her Father didn't know that he had found his daughter yet. DragPump landed an inch away from him and speedily caught him up on everything. But he was still sad. Sad that his little girl was no longer a little girl, he wanted to help. DragPump knew a way he could. They arrived back to Earth after thanking the Alien rescue crew from Plankapun and DragPump plucked a scale off her body made it into the infamous soup and told her father to drink it. Obviously, he didn't want to at first but reluctantly swallowed down a spoonful. He dropped the bowl, but no one heard it smash because there was a very loud rumbling coming from his stomach and his skin was bubbling all over. He was transforming.
DragPump and her father began to live their new lives as happy dragon pumpkin hybrids and made no attempt to become human again.
No one knows what happened to that matchbox.
There once was an Astronaut who had a pet rabbit called Lilly. Now, this astronaut happened to be absolutely petrified of space but Lilly was absolutely obsessed about it! The astronaut had a mission to the Moon on Monday and he had been fretting all weekend and didn’t know what to do about his phobia of space! Whilst he was reading his morning Sunday paper, there was some BREAKING NEWS! Scientists had just discovered that the moon was actually made out of Camembert cheese! The astronaut’s favourite! So, the astronaut jumped out of bed on Monday morning and raced to work in his excitement to be the first person to ever taste the newly famous Moon Camembert!
The astronaut blasted the rocket into space, zoomed through the atmosphere and left Earth behind. “Oh No!” he cried, the rocket didn’t have any fuel left in it after take off! So, the astronaut was floating around in space without any help, what was he going to do?! As the rocket drifted weightlessly and aimlessly around, it started to float into the Gloomy Nebula, a very, very cold place. The Astronaut started to shiver and everything inside the rocket started to freeze over. It was getting to sub zero temperatures until the Astronaut suddenly remembered that he had solar panels that could generate power from the rays of the Sun. He quickly activated the panels and the rocket was back into action, it automatically started flying towards the Sun to get more power. “Lilly!” the Astronaut suddenly shouted as his pet rabbit hopped out of a small cupboard under the navigation screen. Lilly had been with the Astronaut the whole time, she must have stowed away in the rocket and she has nibbled her way through all the wires. No electrics to steer the rocket anywhere and now things were getting far too hot! Buttons, switches and screens started to melt the closer and closer they travelled towards the Sun! He tried to change direction but the solar panels were on automatic reload and kept flying nearer the Sun! CRASH! A comet just hit the side of the rocket, hurtling it towards Venus and crash landing on the surface. The Astronaut and Lilly rubbed their heads after the bumpy landing and put their space suits on to be able to explore Venus. They were getting a little peckish and decided to have a picnic on their unusual day out. Just as they were about to tuck into their cheese sandwiches a strong gust of wind picked up and blew their whole picnic up in the air and to the other side of Venus! They were not having a good day at all, so the Astronaut called the Space AA of course to help them tow their rocket back to Earth. They were greeted by Zappi the robodog, the helpful AA repair dog. Whilst, they told him all about their journey and sipped on hot chocolate, Zappi thought something was unusual, he asked them when they left Earth. “Well today of course, Monday 14th September 2014” said the Astronaut. “2014?!” barked Zappi, unknowingly to the Astronaut and Lilly they had travelled through a black hole and were now in the year of 2214. They had travelled 200 hundred years in to the future! And Lilly was the only Rabbit left in the world! Zappi took them back to Canterbury so the Astronaut could see if his home had changed at all. Now we can’t let you know how things are different in the future in Canterbury as that would be a terrible spoiler. But we can reveal that the Astronaut’s house had been turned into a cloning station for all land and sea creatures. All sorts of animals were going out and in and out of his house, the Amur Leopard, the White Rhino, the Red Tail Shark! It must have been created to save species from becoming extinct or even endangered. Before he knew it, Lilly had hopped into the cloning machine herself and rabbit after rabbit starting popping out of it. She had pressed a few buttons with her little nose before going in and she had tapped in 6 billion! Canterbury was now going to be the new home to the only 6 billion rabbits in the world! How will the Astronaut be able to tell who the original Lilly is?! I guess that’s another story waiting to be told in another town, city, or festival gathering near you!
Once upon a time there was a Princess who when she woke up, didn't want any breakfast at all. She wanted to get herself to the ball straight away! As soon as she got there she darted towards Prince Charming and danced for 15 minutes until the bell in the Canterbury Cathedral rang out. DING. DING. DING. She had to go! She raced out of the ballroom down the stairs and out of the grand entrance only to fall flat on her face from tripping over her own left foot. And when she woke up she had this enormous desire to get to Mars! So she hopped in her private spaceship (of course she had one, she's a princess!) and raced to Mars.
When she got there she scouted around for any Martians calling out and looking a far as she could. From nowhere, a little alien popped out from behind her...and another one from beside and then another one from under her feet until she was surrounded by at least 22 of them! She invited them to play a game of football as an ice breaker and they agreed until she realised they had no feet! No! No! No! They were similar to slugs and slimed everywhere instead of walking. So she suggested they play handball, a little different from football but all the same a very good game. Everything was going well, her team were winning when the ground beneath them started to shake and a volcano began to erupt right underneath their very feet...well the princess' feet at least! Lava was everywhere! Everyone was rushing for safety, trying to escape the fiery lava but they soon realised that it wasn't like any lava found on Earth in our volcanoes. No! It was hot chocolate flowing everywhere! The Princess didn't want her dress to get all sticky with chocolate so she ran as fast as she could but tripped over again! But this time she didn't trip over her own foot but over a bundle of giant lolly pops! The aliens had a quick idea, huddled round the princess and used the giant lolly pops to build a boat for them to sail over the hot chocolate and avoid drowning! They had to wait a few hours but helped themselves to lots of mugs of hot chocolate until it all dried away. They didn't need the boat any more so they ate it! They had a chocolate covered lolly pop feast! They ate so much that they ballooned out and started to float off the ground and up and up and up they went floating into space big fat bubbles of themselves. It started to rain cheesburgers and even then they kept on eating, thrusting their necks and desperately trying to catch the cheeseburgers in their mouths. They were there for hours! Until Pop! Pop! And Pop! One by one everyone was popped by a giant needle it seemed. They all burst and deflated zooming back down to Mars. The needle was actually the pointy end of a space ship that had seen the floating bubbles of the Princess and the Aliens on their radar.
Slap! A piece of dried up chocolate hits the Princess right in the side of her face! One of the aliens, now back to normal size and feeling very silly had thrown the first lump of chocolate in what was going to be an epic chocolate fight! Everyone was ducking and diving, scrabbling as much bits of chocolate they could find and moulding into the most effective missiles, it was everyone for themselves and things soon got out of hand when the Princess threw a particularly hard piece of chocolate at one of the aliens and knocked him clean out! She was so distraught and worried that she had seriously hurt her new friend she started to think of anything she could do to help him! Her best idea was magic! Yes, as a Princess she had a few secret tricks up her sleeve and she knew a little healing magic that might help. So she took what chocolate she had left and covered the alien from head to ... well bottom and spoke a few incantations that changed the chocolate from brown to white and it soaked into the aliens pores and slowly disappeared ending it the little alien's eyes slowly opening. The Princess breathed a sigh of relief and the alien's first words were "Can we go to Earth? There arn't any chocolate erupting volcanoes there are they?". The Princess reassured him there wasn't and the whole group stuck out their thumbs to hitch a ride. The spaceship that popped them all before now came down and gave them a ride to Earth where they were dropped off in Northern India right by a some natural springs so everyone was able to clean off all that dried, sticky and smelly chocolate off themselves. They thought they would explore the local area and started to climb a hill, which turned into a very steep mound and soon they were climbing a mountain! On realising the time, the Princess started racing up the mountain towards the top and the aliens were trying a slightly slower pace as they slimed over rocks and peaks. The Princess was encouraging her team to keep on going and that they weren't too far from the top but she was so worried that she would be late home for dinner.
Once at the top, to their surprise and happiness they discovered a slide trailing down the other side of the mountain and she could see her house just at the very end! So one by one they jumped into the slide and raced down to the bottom. Now the aliens were very good at this, sliming down things was to their advantage and they were out the other end of the slide in no time at all. Unfortunately, just like slugs they leave a slimey path in place of their footsteps and the poor Princess was the last to go down the slide going through all the alien slime left behind. The slide had taken them all to the garden of the Princess' very own house and just as she landed her Dad just happened to call out from the back door that her dinner was going to be on the table in 5 mintues! So she bid farewell to her new alien friends and thanked them for the wonderful day that she had and welcomed them back any time for more adventures around Earth or their very own solar system! The aliens thanked the Princess in return and once again shot their thumbs for a lift from the very spaceship that dropped them off and soon were whisked away back home for their own version of dinner!
