Scoil Chualann, 4th class, County Wicklow, 28th March 2019
Once upon a time, I was a baby growing into a banana from a tree.
When I was born my mother and father, who are both banana trees, called me Barry.
One day I saw a kiwi riding on a mole and carrying a genie lamp.
I went over and said:
“Hi. My name is Barry.”
He didn’t look like any of my brothers and sisters. I was nervous at first, but then the conversation started and I really enjoyed it.
We were friends for a couple of weeks, until the day we got fruit-napped.
Kevin the Kiwi told me:
“Mr Plum is trying to take over the banana tree.
He wants to start bringing plums into the banana tree and convert it into a plum tree and kick the bananas out! Maybe he fruit-napped us!”
“Maybe you could use your genie lamp to help the bananas out?” I said.
We rubbed the genie lamp, and a big fat genie came out.
“You have three wishes!!” said the genie.
“First of all, I would like to turn into a mole!” I said.
“Alacazam!” said the genie. There was a gust of blue wind and I became a mole.
As a mole, I burrowed my way out of the black bag we were stuck in and headed over to the plum tree to spy and gather some useful information.
I found out that the plums were killing bananas to construct a mysterious banana killing gun… DUN DUN DUN
