A Dog Called Cat – Tracey Glasspool
1040 words Children 3 – 7 years
Digger is in the doghouse. He has eaten the sausages, chewed dad’s slippers and tiddled on the kitchen floor. Digger decides that being a dog isn’t much fun anymore – but what should he be instead?
Digger the dog sat in the garden. His ears drooped, his tail drooped, even his whiskers drooped. “Outside!” Mum had shouted. “You are a very naughty dog!” Digger hadn’t meant to eat the sausages that had been left out for tea. He hadn’t meant to chew Dad’s favourite slippers. And he really hadn’t meant to tiddle on Mum’s clean kitchen floor. “I don’t want to be a dog anymore,” he said. He padded off, thinking about what he could be instead.

Blackbird wonders what happens when the sun goes down. When he flies off to find out he makes a new friend in Owl. But Blackbird loves the day and Owl loves the night …. how can the two friends be together?
Blackbird was a bird of the day. He loved sunshine and rainbows, butterflies and sunflowers, green leaves and cotton-wool clouds. He loved singing with the other birds and swooping through the brilliant blue skies. But Blackbird couldn’t help wondering what happened when he went to sleep. Sometimes, just as he was settling into his nest with heavy, half-closed eyes, he caught glimpses of the deep, dark night and of shadowy, fluttery shapes.

Chloe lived in a land of grey – a dull and dreary and dismal land. Everybody who lived there knew that there was something missing. But nobody knew what it was. One evening, as Chloe was having a cup of grey cocoa in a grey mug in her grey kitchen, she heard something WHOOSH overhead. She rushed to the window and looked out. She saw a bright flash and a ribbon of light snaking through the sky overhead. It seemed to be heading towards a nearby wood.
