​The Grumpy Donkey

St Mary’s JNS, Blessington, County Wicklow, 2nd class, 24th May 2018

Mr Grumpyhead the Donkey was sad because it was wintertime but there was no snow.

Mr Grumpyhead was so grumpy that he wanted a holiday where it was really cold because the heat made him grumpy.

“Mrrrr, I hate hot weather!” he shouted in a deep voice. So he set out leaving Spain on a quest to find snow.

His best friend Jimmy the Banana went with him to find snow. Jimmy wrapped up in lots of banana skins to stay warm.

The first place they went to was Antarctica. It was icy and steep but there was no snow.

When they started to climb up a mountain to look for some snow, they saw people with pencils and paper.

“Oh look, we’ll write this story about that grumpy donkey!” they said to each other.

“Oh no, stick my head in the ice so I don’t have to see this!” he said.

Jimmy the banana turned to him and said, “Do you really not want to be in a book?

You’ll be famous.” Mr. Grumpyhead said, “No, I would hate to be in a book.

I don’t want to be famous.”… DUN DUN DUN
