“Brilliant Beasties”

Inspired by the brilliant beasties from the picture book “Kevin” written and illustrated by Rob Biddulph, here is my micro-story for the two I’ve named Hairy Fairy and Slimy Mo.

Here’s Hairy Fairy and Slimy Mo,
They’re at the Best Beasties Talent Show.
Mo is nervous, she’s started to melt,
Hairy Fairy’s angry, he forgot his belt.
‘…And the Best Bestie of them all,
Is Frilly McNilly and his beat box call.’
‘Oh,’ groaned Mo. Hairy Fairy huffed..
Then everyone was shh’d, and hushed.
‘Runners up, Hairy Fairy and Slimy Mo,
You are brilliant beasties, bravo!’
There were claps, whoops, yay’s and cheers,
The party began, with cold beastie beers.

“C for Cat”

Inspired by the picture book Wild, written and illustrated by Emily Hughes, here’s my micro-story for the wild-at-heart cat I’ve called Clive.

Clive was tired of being told he was a cat, when

He knew he was a TIGER.

He had a plan to prove everyone wrong, it involved a race,

Then jumping on Bear to frighten her.

“The Kevin’s”

Inspired by the picture book The Koala Who Could, written by Rachel Bright and illustrated by Jim Field, here’s my micro-story for the crocodile, or alligator, not sure which one it is!

The Kevin’s were practicing their circus act,

Tomorrow was the big show.

Jaw locked and in the splits all day,

They were stuck in the dark. ‘Oh no!’”

“Frightful Freddie”

Inspired by the picture book Little Red Reading Hood, written by Lucy Rowland and illustrated by Ben Mantle, here’s my micro-story for Red’s little dog, or is he a werewolf?

Freddie had a frightful night,

Of strange and spooky dreams.

The next day he felt like howling, and

Had a taste for blood and screams

“Romy the Cat”

Noi, in the picture book The Storm Whale by Benji Davies, has a lovely supporting cast, including six cats. Here’s my take on the ginger one.

Romy was different to her five sisters,

Who snoozed their days away.

She was up and out and always about,

Adventuring her days away.

Until tea time, that is, when Romy

Ate her favourite jam on bread.

Then she’d curl up, forget adventuring,

And cat nap instead.
