Hi everyone – Kris here
This week I wrote a silly story for Nik to read on our trip to Oklahoma City. But then I also forgot to have him read it. So instead I’ll just paste it here and hopefully he’ll have already read it by now! The story is simple and meant to be read by a hyperactive 6 year old. If you have one of those, see if they can read along!
Tick-Tock’s Great Adventure!
Tick-tock. Tick-tock. The clock on the wall was very loud. Tick Tock the kid sat on his chair wondering how to get the clock.
“I know!’ He had a great idea. He could use TNT! Old Bob kept some under his desk.
Tick Tock opened the door to his playpen very sneakily, using a screwdriver he had disguised with a mustache. He opened the door to the hallway.
SQUEAK! The door was crazy loud!
Tick Tock dove under a table and froze in place, to make sure nobody had spotted him.
He covered himself with a blanket so he could hide on the go. Looking both ways, he saw the coast was clear and snuck away. He tiptoed down the hallway as fast as a tiger. No! As fast as a dragon!
He flew down the hallway like a dragon, using the blanket for wings. Vrooooom!
OH NO! A grown up! Tick Tock dashed out of sight into the laundry room. No one would suspect a blanket in the laundry room of sneaking about. The old people walked by and noticed the blanket on the floor.
“Say, why is this blanket on the floor?” One of them asked.
“Ah, don’t worry about it, someone will pick it up” the other replied.
Whew! His cover had almost been blown. Tick Tock snuck into Old Bob’s room like a ninja. Like a moving shadow! “Let’s see,” he said. “One stick should be enough, but I better grab extra in case I need it.” Tick Tock packed up ten sticks of TNT and ran back to his room as fast as lightning. Success!
He stuck the TNT into his pocket and climbed up a chair. Then he stacked another chair on top of that chair and climbed it too. Finally he was face to face with the enormous clock. “Okay, now I just have to put the TNT into the tube and it will blast the clock onto my bed.” Tick Tock checked his pockets.
“Oh no, I have nothing to light the fuse!” He sat in his chair to think.
“Maggie has a flamethrower in the kitchen, that would be perfect!”
Tick Tock ran off to another big adventure!
