One morning Kung Fu Chicken heard about the World Tae Kwon Do Championship.
From the moment he saw the sign, Kung Fu Chicken was both nervous and excited. On his way back home, he met Dr Fox.

One day Moustachio and his best friend Skeleton Spider Jockey were in Fighting Words, reading the newspaper. They were reading about  Mr Chipper taking over the world with his army of minion chips.

Once upon a time in a jungle far, far away, there was a monkey called Molly.
Molly really wanted to fly to the moon, because there was a candy tree with a house on top of it that she wanted to climb.

Creamy Chloe the ice cream cone lived in an ice cream van with her father Choco-Chuck. One chilly day, Creamy Chloe met up with her friend Ruby the Rainbow Unicorn at the corner sweet shop.

Once upon a time there was a poor boy named Jim. His only friend was his husky named Maisy. Jim’s fear was the Fluffy unicorn man, his dream was to get another dog. He didn’t have a home, he was a hobo. He needs money and food. When he got money normally he would spend it on the dog.

I love the summer.  Especially when it’s time to go on holidays.  We usually go camping in Wicklow,  in our tiny tent that water goes through.

By Eoghan O’Connell 2014
“Damn it!” Frank shouted.  “My half-brother Zebulon has found a way to cloak his and his henchmen’s telepathic signals!”

“Om nom nom...” A Kit-Kat always tasted best of you nibble this bit, give your tongue a bit of that tickly-sugary sensation and then gobbled up the rest of that end...

“I want you to put a small amount of this in Mr. Gubblesworth’s drink. Follow him until you find him drinking something,” my boss said, “and slip this in his drink.”

By Alison Tait 2014
INTRODUCTION
This is the story of the Demon that makes your socks go missing.

By Amy Curtin 2014
As I walked past the train station I looked in and saw that Mr. Livery and Mrs. Goregea were sleeping.

He told us his name was Glen.
It was clear he wasn’t normal; well, no-one in the room was entirely normal, that’s why we were there in the first place...

There is a land far far away,
Where the sun is shining every day,
and the only rain comes at night.

By Colm Carey 2014
