Week 1 winner for funniest story:
Emily Bailey, with…
“It was a fantastic day for Bouncing Bunny. He had opened his front door in the morning to find a small parcel containing a purple carrot! Bouncing Bunny’s neighbour, Cool Chick, had recently bought a baby lamb and was pushing it around his front garden.
“Hello, Cool Chick!” said Bouncing Bunny. “What a lovely day! I was thinking of walking down to the beach today – what a treat!”. The big bad wolf is Bouncing Bunny’s best friend – and he really hoped that they would be able to join him on his adventure today. It wasn’t half as much fun alone!
“Oh that sounds wonderful!”, exclaimed Cool Chick. “I would come with you, but I really need to walk my hamster, she’s getting a little restless cooped up inside!” Bouncing Bunny said goodbye and started the walk to his friend’s house, dragging his umbrella (incase it started to snow) behind him. When he reached his friend’s house and knocked, there was no answer. Puzzled, he knocked on the door again. The knocker was in the shape of a growling guinea pig.
When nobody answered, Bouncing Bunny began to worry. He bounced around to the side gate to look for his friend. Oh no! He could see his friend in the back garden – being chased by a huge toad, dressed as an Easter egg! Bouncing Bunny leapt over the fence and raced to the rescue! His friend’s tea set, resting daintily on the garden table, shook as he thumped angrily towards the intruder – who looked shocked as the rabbit wealded a giant rope made of candy canes in its direction. His friend cowered in fear under the greenhouse. With a flourish, Bouncing Bunny lassooed the surprised intruder around the middle – and it fell to the floor mid-leap!
“Thank you!” squealed his friend. “It was going to steal my Victoria Sponge!”. The intruder sighed. “No, I was after his Delightful Daffodils – I’m dressed like this for the Christmas Parade this afternoon. I’m ever so sorry – I don’t know what came over me!”
All was forgiven and the three comrades had a lovely walk to the beach together. They laughed, drank tea and watched the worms playing in the park. “I think it will be a fabulous Easter”, said Bouncing Bunny. And with that, they relaxed happily into the hot sands.”
