Wonderful stories written by a group of amazing kids with huge imaginations!

Thank you to the following children;

Amelie. Author of 'The Dragon with no friends'

Sophie and Lucy. Authors of 'The Hippo in Sharknadia'

Kata. Author of 'The Dragon and the Sand Kastl'

Ned. Author of 'The Dragon and the Orb'

We love the effort and creativity that has gone into writing and illustrating your stories.

We never before have heard about the place called 'Sharknadia', and we don't want to visit there. We might end up in shark jail!

If you see something falling from the sky, please take care! It might be a magical orb that will turn you into a dragon 'faster than the speed of light'. Believe us when we tell you that changing from human to dragon presents some challenges, not least of which is that everyone is terrified of you! This story will keep you hooked with twists and turns to the very end...or is it the beginning?

Some stories were sad and then happy. We cried when the Dragon had to leave his best friend Tom. Then we laughed when Dragon made a new friend Lexi and 'scared her so, so, so good' by breathing fire!

We learnt that some rocks hold special powers. When the dragon 'found a nice rock he put it on his sand kastl it tirned into a ramboae sand kastl'.

Thank you for your stories, you each have wild imaginations! If the children that wrote these stories have not yet redeemed your $5 voucher, please do so on your next visit to Emporium of Wonders.

Now for the story that won the grand prize....drum roll please...

Millie, age 7, Byron Bay Public. Author of 'The Dragon and the Fairy'

Millie we loved the effort put into your presentation and illustration. We also love the message in this is true, sometimes the smallest creature in the land can help the biggest, strongest creature! Everyone has their special talent!

Please read on;


 Once upon a time there lived a fairy. The fairy's name was Nia. Now what Nia loved to do most was walk around in the blue bells.

One day when Nia was walking around she heard a noise. Like a moaning noise. It was coming from a cave. The fairy bravly steped into the cave. The cave was dark and damp. Just as the fairy was turning a corner she saw a Dragon.

"Arrgah" she cried. But then the Dragon said "please will you help me?" The fairy could not believe her ears. "You want me to help you?" The Dragon nodded. Then the fairy said "what do you need help with?".

"Oh, I was walking along and I stepped on a thorn."

"Ouch that must of hurt!" "Well then " said the fairy, "I will do a spell to get it out".

"No!" cried the dragon.

"It will not hurt because it is magic."

"Okay" said the Dragon.

"Alaczam, alaczam, pull out this thorn as quick as you can" and woosh, the thorn was out.

"Thank you, thank you very much"

"Your welcome", said the fairy.

And that is the story of how the fairy and the dragon made friends and they all lived happily ever after.

the end.
