    “The day I got Lost in the Rainforest”

     

    It was a Friday when it happened. I had just finished showering and was pulling on my nightie, a snug weekend feeling in my stomach. Jumping into bed I pulled the dinosaur covers high over my head and checked my alarm clock before drifting off to sleep.

     

    In my sleep I was walking through the old park. I discovered a hidden doorway next to the blossoming cherry trees. Sneaking forward to get a closer look, I saw that it was surrounded in thick, bristling thorns and coated with ivy. Desperate to take a closer look I winced as I pricked myself and bent down to examine the scratches which were by this time stinging painfully. Looking up through the cracks in the door I thought I saw dock leaves and a small ray of hope began to form inside me. Pushing aside the ivy I grabbed the door, expecting it to be locked, and stumbled backwards in surprise, as it swung open revealing…

     

    What I saw was wondrous. A huge flickering light that seemed to be drawing me towards it, glowing dangerously. It gave me a strange sensation that tingled inside me – a sensation that made me want to run but at the same time didn’t.

     

    Walking cautiously towards it I felt a mix of excitement and anxiety. It seemed to be calling me, beckoning me to it and I did not want to refuse. I stopped about a centimetre in front of it, common sense holding me back, but its dreamy voice seemed to think this was not close enough. So I moved, leaning my nose in so that I was almost touching it. I lifted my leg into the air, tilting forward, craning my neck, trying to get closer but not so close that I was touching the substance.

     

    Then it happened. I teetered over and toppled into the substance. It was like… nothing. I felt no feeling, no emotion, just the dreamy bubble that had washed over me before. I was falling endlessly and I wanted it to stay like this, just falling and falling….

     

    BANG! I hit the ground with a hard thud smashing my head against a large tree. 

     

    Then I woke. Feeling ruffled I checked the time. I had been asleep for hours! I was late for school! Grabbing my jacket I ran for the door and was bolting down the street when I realised – it was Saturday! With a mixed feeling of stupidity and glee I turned and strolled lazily back home. Just as I was reaching for the doorknob I felt something calling me, drawing me back. Looking round I saw… The light!

    The same dreamy sensation washed over me as I saw the strange light. 

     

    But no! It couldn’t be! The light was from my dream it couldn’t be HERE in Hackney Lane could it? It has to be, I thought as I was sucked into the light. It has to be, or else why would I be here falling, falling…

     

    I was going to the rainforest in real life!

     

    As my head hit the tree I realised that this was going to be no ordinary rainforest – I mean I had just fallen through a shiny portal thingy that I had already fallen into in my dreams! No, this was no ordinary rainforest…

     

    Standing up I rubbed the back of my head and looked around, finally settling my eyes on a tall mud-brick building set right across the horizon line. Deciding to set off there I stood up and strode up to the temple. After I had reached the last few trees I heard a lion roar near the structure. Looking around warily I listened for another roar but no sound came. After that I broke into a run.  

     

    I was sweating by the time I reached the mud-brick building. My lips were parched and my stomach was rumbling. Wrapping my arms around my back for comfort I touched a bag. Then I realised that I still had my school bag! Never before had I been more grateful for the ugly thing. Gratefully I gulped down my water and was just pulling out my snack box when a light bulb of thought hit me. I would be much more grateful if I saved it till later. Staring reproachfully at it I stuffed my snack box into my bag and set off into the temple. 

     

    Almost the moment I had touched the smooth stone floor a bodiless voice had filled my ears.

    “You have entered the temple. Whether of eternal life or eternal death- well,” the voice gave an unmistakable cackle here. “That is for destiny to decide.” Pausing to see if I was listening the voice coughed before beginning again.

    “If you wish to proceed you will face 3 challenges but if you wish to back out you may leave now and face the possibility of wandering the rainforest forever. Though there is another exit it is well hidden and destiny rarely ever allows people to find it. Most of them starve to death before they have time to consider. ANYWAY… we will give you a choice. You can choose now but once you have chosen there is no going back. Which one do you choose – to stay and complete the challenges or leave and risk staying in the rainforest forever?”

     

    The silence made me jump. I had kind of fallen into the voice’s trance.

     

    “WELL?” boomed the voice, “kindly make your decision, we haven’t got all day!”

     

    I considered. This destiny person didn’t sound very nice, I didn’t want to risk my chances with her but on the other hand I was never any good at challenges….

     

    “Um, I pick… err… um, I think I’ll go with…” I wanted to sound like one of the heroes in films, destiny seemed to like them but I was sadly failing.

     

    “I think a hero would pick… I mean I would pick, sorry, I’m going to go with the challenges?”

     

    “Excellent! Now have you ever met destiny? You know, like a person? The person who decides everything you do, the person who sent you here. I wonder why, you don’t seem like the hero type… Anyway you’re going to meet her but make sure you make a good impression because well… she can make you jump into a lava pit. I’ll call her in… Destiny! Come here! Your guest…. Oh sorry, she’s busy making sure the Patterson family win the lottery, she’s rather fond of them…. DESTINY! Your GUEST!!!”

     

    Nothing could have prepared me for what happened next. A tall dark haired woman came sweeping into the room but she made me feel so… dreamy. I felt an overwhelming sensation of loyalty, like I’d do anything for her, anything….

     

    “Come,” she said, but her voice was nothing like I’d expected it to be. Harsh and sour like lemons, not sweet and calming like sugar. Nevertheless I followed. She led me to a door. It was old, black and flaky and had clearly been used many times.

    “Beyond that door lies your first challenge. Here,” she gestured to a couple of plush chairs sitting in the hall, “is where I answer all your questions. Now sit.” Obediently I moved myself to the closest chair and sat, waiting.

    “Now ask child.” And her rough voice suddenly sounded sweet and inviting, nothing like it had before.

    I didn’t know where to start. Questions where pulsing through my blood.

    “Mind you, I’ll only answer three questions,” said Destiny, in her new sing song voice.

    Well, I thought to myself, that makes it SO much easier to choose…

    “And you have 10 seconds to think of each one,” she sang and I thought I glimpsed a ghost of a smirk flicker across her face.

     

    “Um, ok well my first question is…” there were so many questions, so little time, the pressure was getting to me I knew I was going to say something stupid. “How was the voice speaking to me, it had no body?” I could’ve slapped myself. All the voices in my head were screaming at me, yelling that I’d wasted one of their precious questions. 

     

    “He was a spirit,” said Destiny, her eyes popping madly. “My dead brother, who failed to accept my challenges. He was fate, much more powerful than me, he was the one who created his own death. I brought back his soul, his spirit but he was ungrateful. He did awful things, he haunted people, took control of their bodies, for he was not satisfied with being a spirit. He became untamed. I had to threaten him with the destruction of his body, the only thing keeping him partly alive. From then on he has been cursed to serve me, forever more…” 

     

    I couldn’t speak. My whole body was shaking uncontrollably. Then she spoke again.

    “Would you like to see him? Shrivelled up, eyes rolling around in his sockets, yellowing, rotting…”

     

    “No thanks I’m fine,” I interrupted, sweat rolling down my face. “That’s my only question actually. Bye I’ll go face the challenges now.” And with that I sprinted to the black door and set off on the challenges…

     

    Nothing could have prepared me for what happened next. The moment I opened the door a flash of green light erupted from one of the far walls. It hit me full on the stomach, winding me, dazing me. Then another flash of light came, blue this time, and with such force that I was instantly knocked over. Then with a lurch in my stomach I turned and saw a big gaping hole, and with another lurch I realised that I was going to fall into it! There was nothing I could do about it! THIS was how I was going to die. Lost in the rainforest…

     

    I don't know what happened next. One minute I was falling and then…

    Rubbing the back of my head I felt a lump beginning to form there. Just great. 

     

    Standing up, I ran my aching hand over the floor. Mud-Brick, just like everything else in this blasted place. Looking around I saw strange markings on the wall. One of them looked like a stick on fire. Hold on a minute - a torch! Just then something flickered into life; a torch?! That was strange. The torch cast an eerie glow over the markings, making them look almost sinister. Casting a wary glance back at it I crouched down to begin to decipher more markings. One of them looked a bit like a fork. No, not quite, the figure holding it seemed to be doing something different with it. More like a twisting movement… A key? Just then something shiny and silver landed in my palm. I knew what it was before I even looked down. A key!

     

    Suddenly it all became clear. I had to decipher the markings to complete… what?

     

    “10 more minutes to complete the tasks.” The sudden arrival of the voice in the silence made me jump. “10 more minutes to escape mortal peril! 10 more minutes child, the timer is ticking! 9 minutes 59 seconds!” and with a harsh laugh Destiny’s voice disappeared into the gloom.

     

    Heart beating furiously, I started to decipher but thoughts clogged my mind.

     

    you shouldn’t have wasted your time on the lights, you should have dodged them!

     

    I didn't know what was coming!

     

    you should have asked about them in your questions, shouldn't have run off, scared of a body!

     

    How was I supposed to know?

     

    wasting time answering back!

     

    If you could just let me decipher the code? 

     

    Isn’t it obvious? Door, leads to challenge 2!

     

    but that’s-

     

    It was in fact, genius! Heart beating furiously I thought harder than I had ever thought before, even when I'm choosing what flavour donut I want. 

     

    Door, leads to challenge 2, door leads to challeng-

     

    But my thoughts were interrupted by something that sounded very much like mud walls moving! My mind racing in excitement I turned to see a bright red door with the words ‘challenge 2’ emblazoned on them in gold writing. Reaching for the handle I took a deep breath and turned the handle, preparing myself…

     

    But what I saw was the opposite of what I was expecting. I was standing in a small room with crystal walls. The room was empty apart from in the middle where a huge throne stood, beautiful but completely empty.

     

    Then, without warning, one of the thrones velvety cushions tore in two, creating a mouth like hole. The others followed suit. As strange as this was, I couldn’t help feeling a little bit of pity, for the throne and cushions had been so beautiful.

     

    Then from their mouth shaped holes they began to sing.

     

    “Oh little one, oh little one, we have not had many of you. Mostly big strong men with no brains or beautiful women who try to charm us. But no little one, not many of you most of them think they’re monkeys and run off to the wild. We are impressed but we will not go easy. I can tell you think we once were beautiful and you can make us pretty again. You can try and sew us back together but we will not just shut our mouths. Or you can answer our riddle and a door will appear. If you answer it wrongly you are stuck in this room, you will become the throne or a cushion like us. You may only pick once so choose wisely young one.”

     

    They all looked at me expectantly, or they would if they had eyes. I didn’t know what to do. To sit down and think would be to waste more time but to rush would be throwing away life. Before I could decide a screeching voice from over head yelled-

     

    “5 minutes little child!”

     

    It was too much. I just wanted to sit here forever. Maybe becoming a cushion wouldn’t be so bad…

     

    Before I could tell them my desire a voice spoke of its own accord and I realised it was mine. Bracing myself I listened. My voice spoke and said riddle.

     

    “Hear hear!” called the first cushion. “The child is not as dim as we thought!”

    “Yes!” called the second one.

    “The riddle?” cried the third and together they chorused-

     

    “What has many keys but can’t even open a single door?”

     

     “You have three guesses young one! Answer the third time wrong and we shall have a new friend. Aaah,  I know, you can be yellow with a diamond pattern on you. No! Even better a-”

     

    “The riddle!” called the middle one.

     

    “Oh yes!” called the first. “3 guesses and so little time.”

     

    As if on cue Destiny’s voice rang through the air-

    “3 minutes…”

     

    I had definitely heard this one before. At school. But who had told me it? Ms Claren? She plays the violin, but what has that got to do with keys? What do I know about violins?

     

    Taking a deep breath I called-

    A violin!

    “No silly young one! Where are your brains? A violin? Keys? Have you gone mad! I don’t think I want you as a cushion anymore.”

     

    Dang. A waste of time. The clock was ticking. Wait a minute, was it the caretaker, George? He loves clocks. There are loads of clock riddles!

     

    “Clocks!” I called.

    “No! NO! Wrong again! You’d better get it right his time, I don’t want to have to share my seat!”

     

    “2 minutes…”

     

    Time was running out, and fast. I hadn’t even got to the 3rd challenge yet! But answering this riddle was my last hope, and I was going to cling onto it. I just had to relax. The pressure was getting to me. I just had to relax, breathe. Closing my eyes, I tried to imagine my class photo. There was everyone, smiling up at the camera and next to me, a girl in braces, smiling the widest of them all. Of course, Sharonelle Mouse! She was obsessed with riddles, never a moment when she wasn’t inventing them. Then I saw a piece of paper in her hand. Yes that was definitely in the photo. I squinted to read it. Half of it was facing the camera, the other half invisible to my eyes. Zooming my brain in, I saw the words she had scribbled.

     

    a single door. A piano!

     

    Never in my life had I been so glad to see her handwriting.

     

    “A piano!” I yelled and bolted for the door.

     

    I watched her from the trees, watched her run. I watched her stare at my maze with mixed curiosity and fear etched onto her face. Watched her stumble and run, trip over the brambles I had put there. I looked at her worried face as Destiny called 50 seconds. I watched but I did not help. I never help them. The humans, the brave ones. I only help if they call my name and only one did, by accident. He has escaped now, but I think he left some sort of clue to help. I was rather fond of him, I’m rather fond of anyone who calls my name. Like Destiny and the boy. And maybe her. 

     

    I stumbled endlessly through the maze, terrified. Destiny had finished her call of ‘30 seconds!’ and I didn't think I could, or would, be able to escape this maze. Panting and puffing I sat down, exhausted. I needed help right now. I looked down at the oak tree I was sitting on. Maybe it was just a dream? I hoped so, but everything was so real. I rubbed the bump on my head. It was definitely there. I looked around, hoping for some kind of clue, anything to help me escape. If only a monkey would come down from the tree, somehow help me escape.

    “I need a monkey.” And then I slumped down, exhausted, and prepared to die.

     

    I need a monkey. Why did the child use that choice of words? I watched her slump against the tree , looking forlorn. I was a monkey. But she hadn’t said my name. But she had said she needed me! As Destiny called out 10 seconds I made my choice. Scrambling down the tree I pushed her palm against the oak button. Completely disguised to anyone who didn’t know where it was. As the button disappeared into the depths of the tree I watched the girl vanish. Destiny would be outraged. Definite pray escaping. Being outsmarted. I was Fate’s brother after all, I can twist things…

     

    I woke up feeling drowsy. I expected to be in my bed. After all, it was just a dream wasn’t it? Well when I opened my eyes I found that I was on my bed. So it was just a dream. An exciting one at that. Scrambling out of bed I absentmindedly rubbed my head. I felt a lump there... 

     

     The End *

  2. This terrifying day I was petrified to the bone. I got lost in a deep, dark rainforest. “How did it all start?” You’re probably thinking, oh! don’t get me started on that. Well, I guess telling you that would be a pleasure. It all started when I went on holiday to Brazil with my little brother Aly and both my parents.

    Our lovely caravan was right next to the Amazon rainforest where I used to play every day [even if it was raining!] But I had to go with my dad and my little brother because it was not safe to go alone.

    One fine morning, I woke up without seeing my dad hugging me. I ran up to my mum asking her where he had gone and my mum calmly said that he went to a friend’s house. I wanted to go to the rainforest but I had to ask my brother first. Apparently, he was watching television and refused to join me in the rainforest. I burst into tears because I wanted to go as I loved the rainforest. Luckily my mum said that I could go by myself and I made my way after breakfast, even though I was a bit scared.

    I dared to go inside and play for a bit. I turned around to wave goodbye to my mum and before I said goodbye, I realised there was a monkey standing behind me as if he/ she wanted me to follow him/ her. Curiously, I decided to follow the monkey. As I cleverly got the leftover bread from breakfast so I made a little passage with the bread that would lead me if I got lost.

    Well, I did get lost and the bread didn’t work out as I thought it would, because on the way all the birds had eaten it and I was completely lost.

    I started to panic and I didn’t remember a single step I took. (By the way, the reason the monkey called me was, because one of the monkey’s family members had died). I was completely doomed!

    I really wanted to cry but at the same time I wanted to act brave in front of the monkeys so they don’t attack me and stay scared of me. In fact, they were so kind that they helped me with survival and got some fruits for me from the trees. It was getting darker and scarier so I decided to go and sleep in some shelter.

     When I woke up, there was a horrible Python in front of me! I was ultra petrified now because all the things that had already happened to me had worn me out enough and now this! I said to myself  in my head, “today and yesterday are probably the worst days of my life.” I ran quicker than I had ever run in my life. Finally the Python was out of sight but it could still come so I kept running fast, looking back at the same time to see where the Python was. Accidentally, I hit a tree on my head and fainted because of that.

    When I woke up, I was so relieved to see both my parents and my little brother’s faces in front of me, trying to wake me up whilst I was in the ambulance. I couldn’t believe my eyes but I was actually saved!

     

    The End

  3. One day I was off on a camping trip with my family, the place we were staying at was near the rain forest. My mum told me not go far because I might get lost. Later, my dad asked me to go and collect wood for the fire, ready to roast marshmallows on. So off I went looking everywhere for the best sticks I could find. After what felt like seconds, I suddenly felt a splash of water on the tip of my nose, so I decided to head back to the caravan site.  When I looked up, I was shocked to find that I was surrounded by greenery, I realized I was in the middle of the rain forest!

    Filled with panic, I started to walk back the way I thought I had come, then something caught my eye. When I looked at it, it turned out to be a beautiful butterfly, then I discovered that it wasn’t a normal butterfly because she could talk.

    “Who are you looking for? “ she asked

    “My mum and dad. “ I found myself replying.

    “This poem might help you.”

    You have walked deep into the rainforest

    Start with the broadest

    Then the smallest.

    A couple of moments later, the beautiful butterfly disappeared into the clear, blue sky. I stood there feeling puzzled, I found a tree to lean up against and wondered what the poem meant. I looked at the tree I was leaning against and thought to myself, this must be the broadest tree in the rainforest. Broadest, that’s what it said in the poem maybe the butterfly meant the trees.

     

    I carried on walking from the broadest trees to the smallest ones, until in the distance I could see my caravan site, I was delighted to see I was almost back. I ran and ran until I came to a river which was very muddy, to my surprise in the middle sitting there was a family of crocodiles. I screamed for help and then a couple of moments later a pair of spider monkeys swung down from the tree, one of them spoke to me too.

    “I will carry you over the lake by swinging from the trees.”

    “Are you sure?” I said in disbelief.

    “Yes, the sooner you get on my back the sooner you’ll get back.”

    “OK let’s go.”

    As we swung, I collected the sticks, and before I knew it we were at the other side.

    “Thankyou” I said, and off I went. I could see my caravan getting closer by the second.

    Finally, I got to my family I hugged them tight and told them about what happened in the rainforest but the only person that believed me was my brother Xander.

    As we sat down by the fire the butterfly that told me the poem landed on my arm, I tapped Xander and he looked, the butterfly winked at us and then said, ‘you did it’. My brother stared in amazement.

    In the distance we could see the monkeys that helped me, we stared at them then our mum and dad asked;

    “What are you looking at?”

    “Nothing. “ we both said quickly whilst giving each other a cheeky smile.

    I wondered and hoped that Xander and I could meet some more animals later in the week and enjoy another little adventure together.

  4. We ran a creative literacy workshop at St Bartholomews School in Wotton Basset with two reception classes. We made shoes to inspire the children to come up with stories about lost shoes. We helped them scribe their stories which we present here for your entertainment.

  5. Once upon a time there was a dog called Pojo. Whenever his paw got itchy it's time for an adventure. 

    Today Pojo wakes up, runs out the door and finds himself in a beautiful place with coral. He sees lots of fish and dolphin around. He explores the ocean and plays with the seahorses. He sees more coral and more and more. He saw fishes in seaweed, clownfish hiding in coral and eels were in the rocks. Pojo didn't understand what was happening. 

    "What's wrong?" he asked the fish but fish said "ahh!" So he turned around and saw a shark. Pojo said "help!" A dolphin saw up and got him and they swam to a shipwreck to hide. The sharks went away and Pojo found a magic button which took him home. 

    The End

  6. Pojo was sleeping when his paws started to itch then he went to Manchester he went on a shooting star to get there. It was warm and he noticed that he was in a stream. Then something grabbed his arm and pulled him up and Pojo said, "Thank you."

    It was Sam. "How did you get here?" asked Pojo.

    "I don't know I just woke up and I was in a stream." 

    Then they heard a noise, brrrr. "What was that?" asked Pojo

    "That's a saw," said Sam

    "How did you know that?" asked Pojo.

    "I read lots of books."

    Then when they saw a snake they ran then the snake was gone so they went back to bed. Next Sam woke up when Pojo wasn't there, Sam was terrified and he looked for Pojo but he wasn't there and it was night time and he went to bed. Then when he woke up he saw Pojo. 

    The End

  7. Pojo was asleep with Sam, his paws was itchy. Then he quietly slid off the bed. He was near the sea and something made him jump, it was a ghost. After he dived under and saw a shark. Pojo swam to land but the ghost made him jump into the water. Then the shark nearly ate him. After a dolphin came and helped Pojo. Then he got onto a boat. 

    After the dolphin ate the shark. He was safe now and he said thank you to the dolphin. He changed to a speed boat, he tried it and it was really fast, he was so happy. The dolphin was happy too so he squirted water and then he did a loop. Pojo saw another dolphin. After the dolphin that Pojo saw he did a loop.

    Pojo asked "what time is it?" 

    "It is seven o'clock."

    Pojo said "It's past my bed time. I have to go home."

    So he went home and went to sleep. Then finally he was at home so he went to bed and his paws was so so so itchy. Then he was dreaming about pirates. After he fought a real and scary pirate and then he was smiling at Sam. 

    The End

  8. Once upon a time there was a little dog called Pojo and he wanted to go on a trip to the future! He wanted to go somewhere that was dangerous. Pojo needed to find something he could travel in. Pojo found a time machine and it didn't work. Pojo got some tools and fixed the time machine. He opened the door and closed the door, that meant he got in it! He turned the clock and the time machine moved to the future. He got on a beautiful desert island. 

    It was a desert island with a rainbow on, an unusual island. Pojo found some friends on the island which were friendly! One was called Teco, one was called Mono and one was called Croco. Pojo wasn't used to this island but his friends showed him around. Pojo said, "Thanks."

    Pojo has to get back to Sam but he doesn't know how to. Pojo thought and thought but he just couldn't think. Suddenly he had an idea but it went! Also human monsters were attacking. Pojo was worried. Croco said, "Cheer up lad."

    Pojo stopped and thought. He had an idea this time it didn't float away! Pojo called the animals and insects. They ran to the human monsters and scared them away. 

    All the animals cheered but they were sad, very sad because Pojo needed to get back to Sam. Croco's tears dropped down his eye. as Pojo left he gave a note to the animals and insects which was saying "Thank you for showing me around the island and it was nice to meet you guys! I hope I will come back again." 

    Pojo went into the time machine. 

    The End

  9. One Saturday Pojo and Sam were having the best time of their lives. Sam's mum was sunbathing in the scorching sun. Sam was playing in the paddling pool with Pojo looking at him. Then a bored Pojo asked Sam if he wanted an adventure. Before Pojo could blink his eyes Sam was jumping and clapping his hands. Then Pojo's paws started to melt like melting ice cream, it was time for the story to begin. 

    Pojo leapt toward Sam and pulled him into the deep depth of the water. In a flash they were off. The landed on a sunny beach. After five minutes Pojo saw coconuts in a forest. So they were knocking them down. However they disturbed Mr Black Widow Spider They tried to say sorry but he did not accept. He started chasing them into the forest. Unlucky Pojo tripped and was bitten. So it happened Matilda was the ant she knew how to make an antidote. 

    "You have to get a handful of berries, a cup of worms and four fat sticks." Pojo was cured. Then he said to Sam, We had a busy day we need to go home. They floated through a cloud and reached home. They splashed in the pool and the splash woke mum. She asked "have you had fun?" screamed mum. "Oh yes you have no idea," they shouted. 

    Finally they some rest and to sleep.
