"Once upon a time there was a parrot. He felt so left out. The monkeys were playing. The tigers were roaring. The peacocks were dancing. He saw an old rickety bridge and at the end of it, there was a strange object. Creak crack went the bridge. He fell then he flew back on to the bridge. Two more steps to go. One two he said. Then he just realised he could fly. So he flew off with the object. He sat on a branch and said this is a big stick I wonder what it can do and his voice echoed around the jungle. Everyone looked at him. They all loved it. They said again until he sang a wonderful song and everyone loved him."

"The monkeys chattered in the trees
The birds sang a beautiful song while they flew through the sky
The humming of the wind
And the faint scuttle of the spider on its web
The bumblebee buzzed as she flew close to the ground
The power of her wings blew the dust and dirt away
The parrot is as bright as the carrot can get
And as happy as the sun on the sunniest day
And as nice as the full moon on the clearest night
And its voice is a rough as the waves on a stormy day
To site the parrot is like seeing the most beautiful sunset
The sound of the jungle makes its own personal Jazz"


Rahma, age 9, Stockport
