Zappy the greatest flying zebra

Bray School Project, County Wicklow, 3rd Class, 25 October, 2016

Once upon a time there was a zebra called Zappy who lived in a galaxy nobody knew. Then she went to earth to go trick-or-treating. 

She went to someone’s house and they kicked her out because she wasn’t a human and they didn’t want a zebra in their house.

She felt lonely and sad.

In the next house she met a marshmallow and she screamed so loudly that a baby woke up and started crying. She ran away and bumped into a tree and a sugar glider fell down.

The sugar glider said, “Hey, this is my tree! Go away!” 

“Well, you’re ugly!” Zappy said.

“Oh, sorry for saying that. This tree belongs to Mother Nature and is for everyone!”

Suddenly, another sugar glider appeared. He said: 

“Hi, I’m Elvis. This is my brother Peachy, and he’s a bit grumpy.”

Zappy said to Elvis, “Seeing as you’re so big, could I go on your back? I’ve always wanted to fly.”

“No, I don’t think so. You could fall or you could hurt my back,” replied Elvis.

“What if my brother Peachy and I glide together and you can ride on both of our backs?” Elvis suggested.

While they were flying they saw a giant marshmallow dragon flying towards them…
