The Get Away

Once upon a time in Liverpool, Sparky Sparky Boom Boom the dragon had an idea to dig to China. 

Sparky Sparky Boom Boom had this idea because there was a new player on his football team from China.

The new player was a book, called Mr Smarty Pants. He was a book about British history and he could talk with a British accent.

One day, during half-time at a match, Mr Smarty Pants said to Sparky Sparky Boom Boom, “I’ve seen my parents in the stands, and I need to run away.”

“Why?” said Sparky Sparky Boom Boom.

Mr Smarty Pants said, “Because every time they think I am being bad, they rip out one of my pages. It is making me less smart - soon I’m going to be Mr Silly Pants!” 

“Let’s go to China!” said Sparky Sparky Boom Boom.

After the match, Sparky Sparky Boom Boom and Mr Smarty Pants pretended they were going to get a drink, but really they started digging a hole behind the stands. 

They had to dig a hole because they didn’t want Mr Smarty Pants’ parents to see their little book flying away on a dragon’s back.

As they got close to the earth’s core, it started to get hot. “I’m made of paper and I’m starting to burn!” cried Mr Smarty Pants...
