The 24hr Trial
St Patricks, 4-6th Class, County Wicklow, 6th April 2017
There once was a Kangamoose called cushion. His best mate was Harold the pig.
He lived in the land of the Mookangas and always wished he could be a Mookanga too.
His destiny was to become a Mookanga, like a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. But it’s taking ages.
He didn’t know he had to do a trial – he needed to spend 24hrs in a special cushion: the legendary Mookanga cushion. But I’m sorry to say that he was scared of cushions!
One night Harold came over for a sleepover and watched horror movies about cushions.
Cushion said to Harold “Harold, I’ve always wanted to be a Mookanga but I don’t know how to become one.”
Harold replied: “What’s a Mookanga?”
“But you live in a world of Mookangas!” Cushion said. “How do you not know who they are??”
“Look: I have the top half of a kangaroo and the bottom half of a moose” Cushion explained, “and I want this inverted!”
Harold the pig said “Why don’t we go onto ’Moogle’ and search how to become a Mookanga, then?”
On Moogle they found out the terrible truth about the trial by cushion. He was going to have to face his fears...
