One day there was a baby, who, on his third birthday received a wand. His mum and dad told him he wasn’t allowed to use the wand until he became friends with it.
Unfortunately, Max had no idea what his mum and dad were talking about, so he waved the wand and a portal opened up above his crib and sucked him in.
He landed on a chocolate ground. He started to cry, as his bum was as bruised as an apple that had been used to play tennis. When his tears finally stopped, he realized that his wand was gone. He looked left and right, up and down but it was nowhere to be seen.
He stood up and suddenly a gingerbread man came running towards him screaming ‘yum!’ He looked around, wondering what the racket was, and found a rope that was made out of musk sticks. As most babies would, he started playing with the rope, not really knowing what he was doing.
Suddenly, the rope that he was playing with, which was attached to a gingerbread decoration, pulled the decoration down onto the gingerbread man, who was just about to eat Max.
A long chewy python with sharp lollie fangs slithered up to Max and bought him back to his lollie packet house. Max loved his new life with his new lollie snake friend. Every day for four years he ate 100, 000, 000 lollies. He was soon very fat; as fat as a whale shark!
One day, Max noticed some menus, and he saw that one of the items on the menu was a boy with salt! But he was too late, for the lollie snake had already fattened him up, salted him and just then, gobbled him down.
In the left part of the belly, Max found his wand! He waved the wand and a portal appeared in the snake’s belly. He jumped in the portal and found himself at home.
All was quiet; it was the middle of the night. He wondered if it was all a dream, until he noticed he had chocolate ice cream on his face.
The Fairy Fashion Show
by Yen Poh-Lin
One morning, I woke up and felt all tingly. I realised that there was a fluttering fairy next to me, I was about to scream.
“Ssshhh,” said the little fairy, before I could scream.
I was about to say something but before I could, the little fairy started talking again!
She said, “my name is Florence.”
I was still tingling but more furiously than ever, all of a sudden I shot down to Florence’s size and I stopped tingling.
“Ahhhhh!” I screamed in a squeaky voice, once I had found it.
Florence continued, “Tonight is the fairy fashion show, and a human is a sign of pure luck. So I am bringing you to Fairyland to go to the fashion show.”
As she was saying show she did a loop the loop; “you are a guest of honour!”
She waved her wand and we were whisked off to Fairyland. When we got to Fairyland, we landed in Florence’s toadstool house.
Florence held out a beautiful aqua dress, “this morning while you were asleep I got you this!”
“I love it,” I exclaimed.
“Go change into it,” said Florence.
I went to change into my new dress. Then we did each other’s hair, Florence put pearls in my hair and I put flowers in hers.
At noon the carriage arrived to take us to the fashion show, it was pulled by eight rainbow unicorns. We hopped in the carriage and it whisked us off to the fashion show.
At the fashion show the fairies showed off their designs. Then the Fairy King and Queen went on stage and asked me to come up. When I came up there was a loud round of applause.
When it was finished, we went back to Florence’s house, she thanked me with a snack of jelly. Then I went through the portal back home, safe and sound.
Now every year I go back to Fairyland for the magical fairy fashion show.

One dark, stormy day, I was walking in The Mountains of Despair. I was wearing two gloves and a big beanie. Because it was so cold, my fingers were nearly frozen. But at least I was wearing a large warm jacket.
Then I walked down the rocky stepping stones. They were really wobbly and I fell into The Bubble River. Then I started to swim to shore. When I got out of The Bubble River, I was soaking wet.
I saw a dry towel sitting on a bunch of beautiful blossoms. I walked to the botanical blossoms. I took the towel and I thought to myself that it was the most amazing thing I had ever seen.
Behind the blossoms I saw a purple door. I walked to the door and I opened it and I saw my whole family.

I was at home playing a cool, awesome video game called Fizz Popper. When you drink it, you go flying in the sky like a rocket. It is magnificent!! The TV started to go wrong, it said “good bye”. I did not understand what the amazing TV said to me.
I teleported into a deep, bubbly river. I think it was made of Fizz Popper, suddenly there was a big shape of an enormous monster. It came out, it was a massive giant called Gus. It tried to eat me but I dove down and drank the bubbly water, I started to fly. I flew all the way to a blossom park.
I remember there was a game called Botanical Blossom. It was amazing. There were garden gnomes coming up from the ground, then the night of the living dummy came out with his friends.
I ran into the forest as fast as I could, they were chasing me. I saw a pack of wolves chasing me as well, then I tripped over a twig and fell into a field of blossoms.
When I woke up, I was in bed sleeping quietly. I hope it never happens again!

There once was a pixie called Pixels who lived in a tree house in Melbourne.
One day, the house flooded, so she decided she would have to leave her tree house in the park for a new home.
Before she could even finish packing her soggy, wet belongings, there was a loud bang at her door, and an angry voice shouted ‘let me in, let me in or I’ll chop down your tree house!’
But Pixels knew it wasn’t a good idea to let strangers into your house, unless you were totally stupid, so she closed her bag and snuck out the back door. She locked it with a key and flew off to Chinatown to ask her friend if she could stay at her place for a while, until the flood subsided.
When she got to Chinatown she turned left into the drainpipe then straight down all the way to Pixietown. However, a changeling, the same one that had been knocking on her tree house door, was following Pixel. He broke the drainpipe in half in anger as the magical door to Pixietown had closed behind Pixel.
The changeling had an evil idea – if he could change into a pixie, he could sneak into Pixietown unnoticed and steal the blue gem, which was the source of all the pixie’s power.
The changeling sung the magic words and in a flash, he looked like a common pixie and made it through the gate. But Pixels knew she was being followed because she heard the changeling splashing in the puddles she had left in her trail, and she rallied an army of pixies.
They put on their thistle armor and set off for battle, but they didn’t know which pixie was the changeling!
Pixel came up with a plan to uncover the changeling’s identity. She knew that changelings are quick to anger, so she told the army of Pixies to start yelling out ‘changelings are ugly and smell like rotten old fairy dung!’ And soon enough, one of the pixies went bright red and, boom! He morphed back into his changeling form.
The pixies scared him away with pixie dung balls and invited Pixels to live with them in the pixie Kingdom drainpipe.
The Magical Giant
By Gracie Luong
Once upon at time, Morgan and Ella Bleau were in their room. They wanted treasure from Bob’s treasure shop. Bob told them not to steal his treasures or he would get mad. So Morgan and Ella Bleau decided to run away from their house and search for new treasure.
They first stumbled upon Princess Brianna’s enchanted castle. They asked her for the treasure. Princess Brianna said “For Magnus the Giant?”
“Who is that?” Ella Bleau replied
“He’s a perilous and unfriendly giant who is always stealing my treasure” Princess Brianna said “Morgan and Ella Bleau, would you come and look for Magnus and give him fake treasure so he’ll leave me alone?”
They said “Yes”.
They found Magnus outside the castle. Magnus asked “Are your names Morgan and Ella Bleau?”
“Yes” They replied.
“C’mon, let’s go to the potion rooms in different castles,” Magnus said.
Suddenly Magnus caught a glimpse of the decoy treasure. His eyes opened wide. Magnus freaked out. Magnus said “Is that treasure for me?”
“Yes,” said Morgan.
Magnus grabbed the treasure. Morgan and Ella Bleau followed Magnus to a dragon’s cave where they saw all the treasure he had ever stolen.
Ella Bleau said “Can we make a potion Magnus?”
Magnus said, “Yes.”
Magnus said, “One magic potion before you go to Dungeon Town”
Morgan hated Magnus’ breath because it smelled like poop. She offered to get the ingredients to get away from Magnus’ breath. However Morgan was very naughty. When Magnus asked for frog’s legs Morgan gave him pine needles. When Magnus asked for rubies Morgan gave him fake rubies from the fake treasure.
Magnus stirred the cauldron. Rainbow smoke came out.
BANG! Suddenly out popped the witch’s baby, Baby Peter! Baby Peter loved eating treasure. He was very hungry. He ate all the gold coins, diamonds, emeralds, garnets and sapphires. He ate all the treasure in the entire kingdom!
Magnus was furious! Morgan and Ella Bleau leapt out of the cave and onto a dragon’s back away from the bad monster. They flew home.
Morgan and Ella Bleau felt glad to be back home. They didn’t feel like treasure any more.
