Here you go, here’s the lastest result of my three word challenge. The words Tractor, Unicorn, and Dinosaur, came from Laura W. So thanks very much for the inspiration. This might be my last attempt at a children’s story, not because I didn’t enjoy writing it but because I don’t see my writing career going in that direction right now. Who knows, never say never. Anyway, I hope it’s enjoyable, let me know what any kids think…
The Brave Little Tractor
When all the Woodward children were tucked up in bed, the clock struck midnight and something stirred.
It ruffled out from under a bag, puffed its self up and began to roar. Trevor the Tractor was a sock. He didn’t know what he was other than a tractor but he certainly knew his engine was loud.
BRRUUMM, BRRUUMM, he whizzed loudly across the living room floor. He was going so fast he skidded into the bookcase making it wobble.
He zoomed out into the hallway, he’d never been down there before. He stopped when he saw a pile of shoes and wondered if his friend was there, he missed his friend, they made a great pair.
He nudged a few shoes out of the way, it was a good job he was a tractor and didn’t mind the stink. He was about to turn and go when he saw a flash of pink.
‘Hello? Who’s that over there?’ he asked.
‘Err, hmm,’ said a little voice.
‘It’s ok, don’t be scared.’
‘Well, erm, my name is Estrelle,’ said the pink unicorn with rainbow hair, she was a sock too but didn’t really know it.
‘Hello, Estrelle. My name is Trevor. What are you doing under there.’
‘I lost my twin. I’m sure to get put in a box if I’m found on my own.’
‘I’m looking for my friend too. Have you seen him?’
‘No. I’m sorry, he’s not under here.’
‘Do you know where else I can look?’ Trevor asked.
‘In the kitchen maybe. But don’t go in there, the whooshing machine will swallow you up!’
