The cranky old man

​Scoil Cholmcille, 4th class, County Wicklow, 12th September 2017

Once there was a cranky old man called Billy and whenever a football went into his garden he would pop it. He hated kids.

The kids threw rocks at his windows, pie at his face and nick-knocked his door and then ran away.

One day Billy was cooking his dinner: a piece of cheese was lying on the table and came alive.

‘My name is Millie’ the cheese said. Billy tried to whack Millie with his walking stick. Millie screamed.

Billy’s neighbour Jack heard the noise and went in with his dog Buster to see what was going on.

When Billy saw the dog he screamed. ’Get out of my house you little mutt’ he shouted.

Buster smelt the cheese and ran up to the counter to try to eat Millie…
