For ‘World Book Day’, we joined together as a class to write our own class story. Every child in the class contributed a piece of writing in order to build up the story, which was then published. I know you’re all amazing, inspiring writers and the book will be excellent once complete.

Let’s begin the story …

A tiny voice asked, “Is he the one?”

As midnight approached, the black blanket sky suffocated the tall street lamps. The damp air filtered through the large open sash window. Slowly, gliding through, bright baubles of light scanned and floated around the little boys bedroom!

    The light circled around the little boy’s head and then
    “poof “he came in to a magical dream. It was scary but very exciting. The boy was walking down through the mysterious woods when a creature he had never seen before dashed across his path.
    What was this creature hiding in the woods?

    The bright lights slowly circled around the boys head getting larger and faster; faster than a striking, bright lightning bolt. Confused, Archie jerked and sat up! All of a sudden, there was a flash of purple and blue lightning.
    A floating figure appeared in his dark room, a magical spirit came towards him and whispered in his tiny ears…

      “Hello Archie, I know you are confused but do not be afraid.”
      Archie was shaking with fear, he thought to himself, what is happening?
      “You are the special one, the chosen one!” Exclaimed the tiny spirit. ” I am Bubbles the fairy and I have been sent from The Mythical Land.
      The beautiful, bright spirit held out her soft, small gentle hand. “Trust me, come with me, the land desperately needs your help!!”

      Hesitantly, he held out his hand and placed it into hers. A colourful swirl of light filled the room like a tornado. Archie was swooped up into the magic portal, followed by the tiny fairies…

      CRASH! They landed with an almighty thud to the ground. All around there was mythical creatures; unicorns grazing on the unusual looking blue grass, mermaids gracefully performing back flips in the smooth chocolate water and floating fairies eating candy floss clouds.

      “This is an endangered beautiful place called Mythical Land,” explained one of the fairies.
      “You need to fight and slay the vicious fire-breathing black and purple dragon! YOU are the chosen one!”

        Archie has always been a shy and nervous little boy. How can I be the chosen one?”Archie thought to himself.I’m not special!!
        He didn’t know what to reply to the glowing fairy. He thought for a minute… Am I dreaming, is this really happening to me?
        He started pinching himself to see if he could awake himself from this dream.”OWCH!” He shrieked! He realised this was real and he wasn’t seeing stars.
        The realisation hit Archie like a bolt of lightning! This was not a dream !He felt physically sick! Archie has always been a quiet,timid boy how was he ever going to slay a dragon…

          Archie didn’t know what to say. He couldn’t say no because he didn’t want to upset Bubbles.
          “Bubbles, can I ask, why am I the chosen one?” He questioned nervously.
          “You have done many great deeds in your life and helped many people, without even realising it. Now it’s time to help us and save our precious Mythical Land.”

          Looking rather puzzled, Archie finally made his hard thought decision.
          “Bubbles… I will slay the dragon and help save Mythical Land” He exclaimed with determination. “However, I will need to be trained by some of your best warriors and I will need the right armour and equipment to defeat the evil dragon.”

          “Really?” Cried Bubbles. “Great! We need to get you ready”.

          Archie and Bubbles meandered across the blue grass. Everyone stared and started whispering and mumbling to each other. All of a sudden there was a loud rumbling noise…

            Bubbles whispered “We need to stay quiet.”
            Archie replied ” What was that?” He was extremely puzzled!
            “The dragon is snoring,” Bubbles quietly spoke. “He will wake soon, so we better hurry up and get you ready for battle.They swiftly ran up to the top of the castle, climbing the stony, steep stairs. Eventually, they reached the top, they saw knights in shinning armour stood on guard and behind them was an almighty throne fit for a King or Queen.
            The knights violently crossed their silver swords, stopping them in their tracks!

              “Why are you here?”Questioned one of the guards.
              Archie explained “We have travelled from a far away place named Mythical land, and we are hoping that you could assist in our quest to slay the devilish black and purple dragon!”
              On hearing this, the Knights looked at each other and slightly nodded in agreement.
              “We shall agree to train you in our expert ways of knighthood” Exclaimed the two Knights.

                Archie and Bubbles followed behind the two tall knights and once they reached the training grounds Bubbles whispered quietly “Are you sure you want to take advice from them? If you fight the vicious dragon,you will be risking your life for our land of beautiful fairies and animals!”
                “Of course I do,I will do it for the greater good!” Archie shouted back.
                The two silver knights told Archie to pick up his shiny, sharp sword and jabbed the dummy. He was doing really well until he accidentally dropped his sword grazing his thigh.
                He quickly recovered from his injury and set off on his quest …

                  As he set off on his quest Archie tripped and tumbled opening his wound even more! Shocked, he looked down and found a shiny red crystal, as shiny as ruby. Where has that come from he thought to himself? Maybe this is something I need later on in my quest.

                  At the side of Archie, Bubbles whispered “there’s a fire” surrounding two unicorns and then the ferocious dragon flew by and stole their magic . Archie screamed “omg is that the dra dragon I have to kill ” Bubbles replied”yes, now run go go go get to the kingdom ”
                  “okay ” said Archie then they ran and ran and ran.Once they got to the kingdom the dragon had found the secret location and started to destroy it. 30% of the land had been destroyed. The dragon looked back at the destruction he had caused and he flew away under a hail of flaming arrows,but the arrows ricocheted off the dragon…

                    All the creatures in mythical land were petrified! Terror-struck, they clung to one another! Archie had an extremely tough job to do. He gathered all of the mythical creatures and shouted “I can not slay this dragon alone! I call upon all the creatures of this magical, mythical land to stand forward and join me on my quest and slay the ferocious dragon.”
                    The fairies gasped in fear, the gnomes looked at each other in horror, the whole of mythical land fell silent as each creature contemplated the dangerous request raised by Archie.

                    Archie stared anxiously into the crowd, then one brave goblin stepped forward and volunteered to join Archie and help slay the evil dragon. Slowly, one by one, each creature in mythical land stepped forward to accept Archie’s request to work together as one to slay the dragon.

                    Archie ordered everyone to get ready for battle…

Everyone was ready for battle.
“Are you sure you want to go through with this Archie?” Bubbles asked.
“Yes! I am sure!” Replied Archie. “I am certain! We are ready to defeat this nasty dragon because if we don’t this mythical, wonderful land will be destroyed!”
Putting on their shiny armour Archie and his followers set off up towards the fearsome dragon’s cave.
“Everyone stay here I’ll check if the dragon is inside or not!” Archie quietly said.
He searched around the dusty, dark cave and heard an almighty “ACHOO!” Archie’s legs shook, knocking his spindle knees together. Gripping his hand tight in his mouth he slowly tiptoed into the dragons cave even further. Before his eyes, he saw a red hot fire like a volcano in the pitch black corner and in front of him on the dusty floor lay a purple diamond necklace. Carefully he picked up the necklace and out of nowhere a shadow shot past him! Trembling with fear Archie investigated further into the dark, damp cave.
Looking around he saw this enormous boulder in the corner of the cave. He approached it and pushed it but it did not move. It felt silky and smooth.
“AAAAAH!” Screamed the dragon in fear “Don’t hurt me!”
Scratching his head, Archie replied.
“Hey? Wait, you can talk?” Archie questioned.
“Of course I can I’ve been talking for many years, please don’t hurt me”
“Hurt you?” Archie replied. “I don’t understand,why do you sound so nice, you attacked mythical land and destroyed half of the kingdom?”
The dragon clearly explained that the purple necklace, which Archie was holding, had once turned him evil. The dragon continued his story for quite a while and Archie listened intently until all of a sudden the dragon noticed Archie was holding the necklace. Stumbling his words, the dragon cried
” No, no I wont go back to being that ferocious dragon again!” His long, wide wings started to flap and he flew out of the cave.
Outside, Archie’s team were ready with their sharp swords pointing them towards the exit of the dragons cave. Frantically, Archie ran after him
“Stop, stop don’t hurt him!” He shouted to his people. “This dragon is not evil or ferocious!”

    Harrison Hawksworth · 2nd February 2017 at 8:16 pm

    The team of fearless men explained
    “The dragon has done this before! He says he is not evil and ferocious but he lies and sometimes gets away with it! We need to stop him!”
    “But I don’t understand?” Questioned Archie “Why would he do that?!”
    “Just listen and trust us” The people exclaimed. They continued on their quest to find out answers from the fire-breathing purple dragon and to see if the purple diamond necklace was truly evil.

    As they trekked through the world of mythical land, Archie spotted a beautiful castle at the top of a magical, sparkly pink hill and shouted
    “LOOK WHAT I FOUND, IT’S A BEAUTIFUL BLUE CASTLE WITH AN ADDITION SIGN ON IT!!!”
    Bubbles replied “That is the tower of math, there is one question that the mathematicians have not figured out, MC squared. It’s soooooooo hard!”
    “Can it help us in any way to find the dragon?”…

      Melissa · 5th February 2017 at 8:42 pm

      Suddenly, the purple,shiny necklace in Archie’s hand flew up into the air and travelled towards the pretty, blue castle on the big hill. It disappeared into a dark open window!

      “How is it doing that? We better follow it!” Archie exclaimed.

      “Are you really sure, it could be dangerous?” Bubbles said worriedly.

      “Yes, we need to get that necklace or we can’t fight the dragon.”

      They crept cautiously up to the castle and decided to bang on the door. They reached up to an animal-shaped door knocker and all of a sudden it started to speak.

      “Please state your business!” It exclaimed.

      Archie gasped at the site of the talking door knob.

      “Err, we would like to see the owner of this tower!”

      There was a loud click and the door swung open revealing a long, large room with weird statues on each side. At the far end there stood a tall, thin wizard wearing a purple, starry robe and hat.

      “I’ve been expecting you Archie, I heard you’re the chosen one!”

      Archie looked at Bubbles and she explained
      “This is the wise wizard of math sums.”

      Archie noticed the diamond necklace around the wizards neck.
      “If you want this necklace you must complete a task.”

      “What would that be?” Archie asked.

      “You must go into the forbidden forest and get me the crystal skull of enchantment!”

      Archie and Bubbles then looked at each other and gulped…

        Worried, Archie and Bubbles took one last glance at the Wizard in fear! He asked for one more request. “You must go and get me three ingredients for a magical potion, the ingredients are antifreeze, an addition sign and a number 2.” Archie and Bubbles set off on there quest for the ingredients.

        They set off, walking, searching far and wide. All of a sudden they stumbled across the antifreeze which was on bigots hill.

          Shannon Campbell · 10th February 2017 at 12:22 pm

          They thought they’d never make it after an hour they were finally there they were so excited they grabbed the antifreeze they had a glance down and gulped ” how are we going to climb down safely ” said bubbles . “We will figure it out” said Archie. An hour later they finally reached the bottom. Now. They can go on there search for a number 2 . Bubbles was confused with Archie when he said that he wanted a number 2 but she just went with it . Half an hour walking and they found the number 2 but it wasn’t so easy to get it the number 2 was in a hounded house now one would ever go in so they had a challenge to face….

          Jamie · 13th February 2017 at 12:33 pm

          Archie picks up the antifreeze and places it in his golden, brown backpack.
          Archie and his army looked further and searched around for clue in order to find the + sign and the number 2.

          They carefully walked towards the pink suffocating fog, into the valley, when they noticed the number 2 and the + sign dangling down together from Mount Vesuvius.

          “OH NO!” Cried Archie. “How are we going to get that without getting burnt by the vicious, burning lava?”
          ” I have an idea,” Replied Bubbles. “We can get the dragon to help us because we know he hasn’t got the purple necklace on, so he isn’t evil!”
          “Great idea!” Exclaimed Archie.

          Breathing in deeply, Bubbles let out an almighty whistle and the dragon came zooming through the sky and accidentally knocked off both the number 2 and the + sign. With a sigh of relief, they returned to the castle to deliver the ingredients to the wizard…

On their way back to the wizard, Archie and Bubbles had to go back through the forbidden forest. When all of a sudden a mysterious creature ran in front of their path. Then it spoke
“Who are you and what are you doing here ?”
Archie scarcely replied ” I am Archie and I am the chosen one, who are you? ”
” I am Biggle Boggle the Wizards pet and I have been sent by him to help you back through the forbidden forest .”
“Why?” asked Bubbles
Biggle Boggle replied ” This place is full of mysteries and evil creatures.”

” I hope you have managed to collect the ingredients the wizard demanded from you?” Inquired Biggle Boggle.
“Of course we have!” Echoed Archie and Bubbles.
“Then there’s no time to waste,” Demanded Biggle Boggle “LETS MOVE!!!.
After an exhausting walk along a meandering path which led them out of the forbidden forest, they finally reached the wizards sparkling, blue castle Biggle Boggle approached the door with great enthusiasm and spoke to the extravagant door knocker with tremendous certainty …

    Thomas · 14th February 2017 at 12:57 pm

    Biggle Boggle exclaimed
    ” I have led the chosen one named Archie through the forbidden forest and he has brought back all the ingredients.” Crash, the door swiftly swung open and there he was stood it was the wizard with the purple, diamond necklace around his neck. He spoke with enthusiasm
    ” Thank you for delivering the ingredients and now it is time to mix it!”

    Firstly, he added antifreeze and the number 2. Then he slowly poured and added the addition sign, making the precious potion a green and sky blue colour like a mermaids, long tail. Out of nowhere, a bolt of lightning struck down and the evil wizard did his evil laugh.
    “Haaaaa Haaaa Haaaaaa!!”

      Ethan Russell · 14th February 2017 at 4:07 pm

      Archie quietly spoke to Bubbles
      “What on earth is happening?”
      Bubbles replied,
      “I don’t know!”

      Out of nowhere the Wizard exclaimed
      ” You have finished your quest of finding an antifreeze, a number 2 and an addition sign. Here is your reward-the purple and diamond necklace.”
      Bubbles and Archie hesitantly said
      “Thank you very much.” But they were unsure whether to accept the gift because they knew the necklace was tainted. It can make people and animals evil!
      Then all of a sudden the ground started shaking and the tower started to crumble like rocks being thrown from the sky. Archie screamed
      “What is THAT!!!!!”
      Bubbles softly mumbled
      “Its the dragon we need to get going NOW. Archie and Bubbles started to scramble down the forbidden rocky stairs when they reached the bottom. Archie tripped and lost the necklace! Frantically, they both rummaged to find the necklace as they needed it to save Mythical Land. Luckily, Archie found it under a large rock.

      The enormous purple and black dragon suddenly came out of its cave and shot over to Archie
      ” Have you found the necklace of enchantment? We need to destroy it so we can save the land and prevent others from becoming evil.”

        Archie exclaimed to the massive black and purple dragon,
        “Yes I have retrieved the enchanted necklace, now let’s get to Mount Oblivious where we can finally destroy this wretched necklace once and for all!”
        Archie and Blake, (the dragon) set off to Mount Oblivious. Archie was riding Blake when a heard of bloodthirsty toolons were coming towards them at swift speed. They looked like a group of pteranodons, they were black like death. They screeched like demons! Coming towards Archie and Blake, Archie took out his sword of fire and took an almighty swing.

          Caiden Hussain · 16th February 2017 at 1:44 pm

          With his sharp sword, Archie fought off the pteranodons with the help of Blake. Blake used his tail as a defence and swiped them to the ground. Thud! They hit the ground with an almighty crash!

          Archie used Blake’s long scaly tail and crawled up onto his spine, mounting onto his head. They quickly flew to the Sea of Death, Blake’s wings gracefully cut through the air. When they approached the sea, Archie forcefully flung the necklace into it and it dangerously demolished, blowing up the necklace!

          Once the necklace was destroyed, Archie and his friends, including the dragon Blake, returned to the castle to share the delightful news with the wizard.

            When entering the castle, something wasn’t quite right- no one was around, the air was still and silent.

            “This is strange, where is every one?” Said Archie to Bubbles and all their friends.
            “I’m not sure!” Replied Bubbles.
            They continued to walk down the corridor and they saw this dark purple light coming from underneath the door.
            “What’s that under there Bubbles?” Cried Archie.
            “I’m not sure! Let’s go and investigate.” She replied.

            Creeping, they approached the door and slowly opened it peaking through the small gap.
            To their astonishment, they saw the wizard, planning to destroy Mythical Land.

            “What are you doing” Screamed Archie. “Why do you want to destroy Mythical Land?”

              Miguel · 16th February 2017 at 2:48 pm

              “SILENCE!” Bellowed the wizard. “I have had enough, listening to your nonsense. I will continue my duties and I will wipe out all of the people in mythical land. I will be king!”
              With that, Archie draws his sword and he accidentally cuts the top of the wizards hat off. The wizard throws back a magic spell at Archie slamming him to the floor. The wizard gets closer and closer to Archie and is just about to zap him when all of a sudden, Bubbles steps in and saves Archie. She falls flat onto the floor!

              Then, Archie quickly runs and steals his magical cane and snaps it in half, throwing it out the window and into the chocolate sea. He rushes over to Bubbles and she slowly opens her eyes, Worriedly, Archie starts to cry.

              “Archie” She whispered “Don’t worry I am fine, I feel even stronger than I did before. My body is changing the bad magic into good- we can now spread this joy across mythical land.”

Caiden · 15th February 2017 at 2:03 pm

“Yes we have found it and we need to destroy it.”Replied Archie.

“Hop onto my back and we will fly to the sea of death. There we can ruin it; the evil will be gone forever!”

Archie stood at the side of the dragon, he flicked his pointy tail and placed Archie on his scaly back.

Gliding through the air, they looked below for the Sea of Death. They spotted it and aggressively threw the necklace so it could never, ever bring wicked back to Mythical Land.

Splash! The piece of jewellery exploded in the sea in front of their eyes! They were relieved that the main source of evil had been demolished forever!

Grace · 16th February 2017 at 2:55 pm

The wizard steps forward and says
“Thank you. Thank you for saving me from the evil powers. The curse has been lifted when you snapped my magical cane. All the good powers have now entered Bubbles, she will spread happiness and love across Mythical Land to all people and animals.”

Archie replied
“I realise now that I am the chosen one! I have lifted the evil curse from all people and animals. Mythical Land is now a safe and happy place once again.My duty here is complete.”

Darcie · 16th February 2017 at 3:05 pm

Walking out of the castle, with Bubbles and his other friends, Archie noticed a magical, grey and purple stone.
Bubbles told Archie
” This a magical portal, whenever some one visits us, this is how they return home.”
“How do I work this?” He asked Bubbles
“All you need to do is tap the side button and the portal will open, transporting you back to your home.”
“Ok, that sounds easy enough, But before I go, there is one last thing I would like to say. Thank you for this adventure of a lifetime. It has been great meeting you all and I am glad happiness is restored in Mythical Land.”

Archie pressed the button and leaped through the green hole back to normality.

Korben · 16th February 2017 at 3:10 pm

Once Archie returned home he placed his hand in his pocket. Confused, he discovers a red token which states
“World Transporter – The Chosen One!”

He says to himself – this is how I can change worlds and he questions himself, has this been in my pocket the whole time? I wonder where my next adventure will take me…
