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.
