The Adventures of Garry Goose
One day Garry Goose was at the river. Suddenly, a poacher jumped out of the thick bushes! He frightened the life out of Garry. Poor Garry ran into Labyrinth Wood.
The harsh croak of crows was horrible. The trees formed a maze. Then a terrible stench filled the air. It was so horrible it made poor Garry faint!
After three whole hours Alisha Albatross and her best friend Harra Hawk were flying around when they met Sam Starling. They were playing tag when Sam shouted, “Dive bomb!” So they dived down to the tip of Labyrinth Wood.
Harra said, “I can see Garry Goose!” They flew down to help.
“Ugghh,” groaned Garry.
“He has thorns in his wings,” said Alisha.
“Harra and Alisha – hold Garry’s wings and follow me,’’ said Sam. They barely flew one kilometer when the poacher shot at them.
“Not this guy again,” said Garry. But the poacher gave up and ran away. They dropped Garry off at the river and flew back to their nests.
Garry thought, “What an adventure!’’

Darren The Duck
One day a boy called Darren the Duck was walking in a forest.
“Oh no!” said Darren. A grizzly bear had popped out of nowhere. Darren ran away quickly, the bear ran after him. Darren jumped into a swamp and swam away.
He looked under the water and he saw Peter the Piranha was chasing him. Peter was so much faster than him. So Darren jumped out of the water and Peter swam away.
While Darren was walking away, he saw Conor the Crocodile. Conor was lying on the bank. Luckily Darren was a flying duck so he flew away.
Then Darren’s adventure was over. He flew back to his nest and saw his mum Mary and his dad and told them all about his adventure.
