“Bear Necessity”

Inspired by the picture book Oi Dog!, written by Kes and Claire Gray, and illustrated by Jim Field. Here’s my micro-story for the brilliant bear family.

When their kitchen table was lost in the post,

Mr and Mrs Bear had to improvise.

Breakfast on the stairs was surprisingly good,

It had started to feel quite civilised.

“Talulah Wild”

Inspired by the picture book Where the Wild Things Are, written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak, here’s my micro-story for the red-headed wild thing I’ve called Talulah.

Talulah had been to the hair salon,

She wasn’t sure about her new do.

It felt strange as she swung through the trees that day,

But by nightfall she felt fierce and cool.

 

Now,

she’s coming for you!.

“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
