By Jarrod, Chloe, Mischa and Jessica
Lolly Inspector Jarrod was standing in front of a ginormous jellybean. The jellybean was full of everything that is sweet, like soft drinks, ice-cream, lollies and bubblegum. It looked as big as a city. The factory it came from looked like a shop full of sweet stuff. Inspector Jarrod needed to check the jellybean in case it had germs. He tasted it, and decided it was ready to go into the shop. Jarrod wanted to eat the whole jellybean because he was always hungry, but that day he wasn’t going to eat it because he was controlling himself. When Lolly Inspector Jarrod had finished inspecting the big jellybean he went to another room and filled up his drink bottle with water. It’s thirsty work inspecting lollies.
Mischa was hiding behind a long, thick pole. She was spying on Lolly Inspector Jarrod. He was ticking his checklist. After he left she went to the big jellybean, which had ice cream and lollipops sticking out of it. She thought it looked very yummy! Just when she was about to steal it Police Detective Chloe arrived.
“Oh no!” said Mischa as she quickly hid behind the same pole. Then Chloe left the jellybean alone. “Phew!” said Mischa. She really wanted the jelly bean because she had no money to buy food. She had spent all her money on a new house because there was an earthquake. She went out again and picked up the huge jellybean but then Chloe saw her and chased her home. Luckily Mischa escaped with the jellybean!
Police Detective Chloe secretly wanted to eat the ginormous jellybean that the factory had made. She was visiting the lolly factory because it was Lolly Day. When she reached the factory it smelled like delicious ice cream with chocolate cookies. She walked around the lolly factory, and that's when she saw Mischa trying to steal the giant jellybean. She tried to catch her but Mischa was too quick. Chloe had to get the jelly bean back so she could eat it all up!
When Chloe reached Mischa’s house she saw the giant jelly bean. It looked like a rainbow that was jelly-bean-shaped. Inside the jelly bean was ice cream and chocolate chips. Chloe had to get it back.
Suddenly, the lolly maker saw Mischa and Chloe and said “Give it back now!” They gave it back and the lolly maker said they weren’t allowed to visit the factory any more. Mischa was arrested and had to see the judge.
The courtroom was a big room with a big brown door. It had a very high chair for the judge and there was a table for sandwiches. It was very dark. The judge was very lazy. She told Mischa, "You stole the giant jellybean. I saw it on the security camera."
"I didn't do it!" Mischa argued. She had come to court in a disguise, but the the judge could tell it was Mischa because she could still see her glasses. They were small and quite orange, with a touch of white.
The judge called Police Detective Chloe. However, it was not to take Mischa away, it was to get the judge’s sandwich.
The judge said, “You watch Mischa. I will finish my sandwich while you do that.”
So Chloe walked over to Mischa. The judge ate very slowly because she did not want to do anything. The judge ate until 7 pm. She ate for five hours.
"Are you finished yet?" Police Detective Chloe asked.
“Get me my craft set,” said the judge.
“Just get it. It does NOT matter why. So just get it.”
“Get it yourself, it’s right behind you!” Chloe said.
“Then YOU take Mischa away!” the judge shouted.
“Ok,” Chloe agreed.
The judge turned around and got her craft set. She started making a jelly bean. A giant one. It was so big she got bored before she finished making it, so she put it away in her cupboard and went to bed. It was almost midnight.
The very next day, the judge woke up at 4am and quickly finished making the jelly bean. At 6am she was done. Perfect timing.
Back in court, the judge told Chloe to wake up. Mischa was still there.
“Not yet,” Chloe whispered, “I’m still tired.”
“No! You must take Mischa away now!” said the judge. She put the fake jelly bean on the table and told Mischa to get it. Mischa leapt on it and took a bite. She said that it wasn’t the jelly bean that she stole.
But the judge still said, “I sentence you to go to jail! For a month!”
“Ok,” said Mischa.

Once upon a time, there was a wild monkey called Chris that loved eating. One day he didn’t want to eat fruit any more so he decided to find something else to eat. But his friend Sam said, “Don’t be silly. Monkeys only eat fruit.”
Chris wasn’t listening so he went to the city. He smelled something really good and really yummy, so he followed the smell until he reached a shop with a sign that said, “Pizza.” He tasted a bit of that thing which smelled really good. Then he heard that the thing was called 'pizza'.
The next day he called Sam to come with him to the city to see and taste pizza. Sam also loved pizza, so they decided to make a pizza by themselves. They waited until the owner left, then got to work. They made a pizza that tasted really good.
They decided to make another pizza the next day. But the shop owner saw them. Chris and Sam got such a fright that they jumped right up to the roof!
“Come here, little monkeys,” the owner said. “I won’t hurt you. Come, if you wanted pizza you only had to ask.”
Chris and Sam slowly climbed back down. They shared a pizza with the owner, whose name was Jack, and then Jack asked if they wanted a pizza oven and a pizza base. Chris and Sam were so excited they borrowed Jack’s phone and called 50 extra monkeys to help carry the things home.
Back home, they made a pizza by covering the base with bananas, strawberries and pineapple (these were the only ingredients they had). Unsurprisingly, their pizza tasted just like fruit. It wasn’t quite new food, but Chris still liked it very much.
