The Golden Peacock Glittering Hot
Just yesterday, I saw three elves, one golden fairy and a peacock mixed with fire. They were all reading books in Santa’s library, but the fairy was doing an important job – guess what it was? She had to make all the words and put them into the books and the peacock had an important job too, to make Santa warm with its glittering hot fire. Wait! Don’t leave this book. There’s more. On Christmas Eve they all didn’t do their jobs and so I’m writing this story for you.

A long, long time ago, in the jungle, there was a flying zebra called Super Zebra. He was always very nice to people and Santa heard about him from the reindeers who were flying over and saw him rescuing a baby possum from the swamp. Santa asked Super Zebra to help deliver the presents because he was one reindeer down in the sleigh team. The night before Christmas, Super Zebra was flying high in the sky picking up presents and delivering before morning. That was the beginning of his job as Santa’s delivery zebra.

One Christmas Eve one thousand years ago, in the workhouse where the elves were making sure all the presents were working, a reindeer named Kyle was humming to himself while watching the elves work. He was unhappy because Santa didn’t choose him to lead the sleigh. As he went looking for Santa, he ran into another reindeer who told him to go away. It all got better for Kyle when Mrs Clause heard him singing and told him how special he was. That Christmas Eve was one that Kyle would never forget.

One year a special caterpillar went around Australia and the caterpillar’s name was Henry. Henry had special powers and his special power was changing colours, so he could turn purple, red and lots more. At the very last river, Henry met a frog jumping across the gold coins floating on the water, who said, “You can’t cross until you do something special for me.” Henry’s mind lit up and he said, “I’ll let you see me change colours,” and the frog loved that idea. Henry’s trip around Australia was good and he loved meeting a new frog friend.

Now the dragon was a popular story writer but was always under pressure to produce a new book every year. One year the dragon wrote a strange story about a dragon who wanted to be an author.

Ryan the Rhino had one mission in life and that was to become an undercover member of Charlie’s Angels. The problem was he couldn’t shoot a gun, he was too big and he was not agile on his feet at all. At the Charlie’s Angels course, the gun slipped from his hand and when he bent down, a huge crack meant he had a tear in his pants and the whole class cracked up. His cheeks flamed bright red and he stomped out of the room, which showed the Angels that he was not light on his feet. A trainer said to him, “Ryan, I’m sorry but you can’t be an angel”, but Ryan never gave up his dream of joining Charlie.

One day, an extremely brave bilby determinedly dug a burrow in front of a fox. The black and brown bilby kept digging and digging and so did the fox but the bilby was too hard to catch. After two hours, the bilby’s burrow suddenly reached the end and, although the bilby didn’t know it, he had reached the edge of the earth. He made a quick move and covered his head with his ears and then he flew off into space. That day the brave bilby was the first astronaut bilby in the world.
