The Bad Mistake

Fighting Words at Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again Exhibition at @NationalLibraryofIreland, Réalt na Mara Girls National School, Donacarney, Co. Meath, 2nd Class, 10 March 2020

One day there was girl called Abigail and she bought a dog called Choco. Choco dreamed about playing with a squeaky frog toy in the back garden.

When he woke up, Choco was in a completely different place altogether and there was a dinosaur beside him.

He was in the bathroom and the dinosaur had stuck his head through the window.

“Hello,” said the dinosaur.

Choco realised that he hadn’t seen Abigail in a long while. Choco thought that maybe the dinosaur was Abigail.

Choco heard the door close. He realised that Abigail was going to the shop, looking for a toy for him.

Choco ran out of the house to find Abigail and the dinosaur chased after him.

When they got to the door of the shop, they forgot to open the door and they bumped heads on the door.

Abigail heard the big bump and the door broke! She noticed that she would have to pay a lot of money for the door.

She blamed Choco for it so she wouldn’t buy him a squeaky toy…
