All for Julie, the prettiest girl
A story by Alex Case

In a town called Moreton lived
three friends called John,
Harry and Graham.
One winter, a girl called Julie
moved into the little cottage at
the end of their street. They
thought she was the prettiest
girl in the whole world. From
that day, everything they did
was just to impress Julie.
First they tried to impress her
with poems.

John wrote a long poem,
Harry wrote a longer poem,
and Graham wrote the
longest poem in the whole

Then they tried music.
John played a loud guitar,
Harry played a louder
trumpet, and Graham played
the loudest drum in the whole

Then they decided to show off
their engineering skills.
John made a fast go kart,
Harry made a faster go kart,
and Graham made the fastest
go kart in the whole world.
Finally, they thought she’s
definitely be impressed by
circus skills.

John juggled something
dangerous, Harry juggled
something more dangerous,
and Graham invented the
most dangerous juggling trick ever.

The next day was Julie’s
birthday party.
So John bought a big present,
Harry bought a bigger
present, and Graham bought
the biggest present in the
whole world, and they all
arrived nice and early and
ready to impress, but…

Julie’s garden was small, her
cottage was smaller, and her
door was the smallest on the
street, so…
there was no space for huge
presents, for juggling, for go
karts, or for guitars, trumpets
and drums. There was room
for poems, but not for poems
as long as John’s, Harry’s
and Graham’s.

So they took everything back
home, went into Julie’s house
with nothing and had to have
a tea party with Julie’s little
tea set, eat Julie’s little cakes,
play music on a little toy
piano, and make new, smaller
presents with origami.

But they had the most fun all
year, and when they left they
were the happiest ever, and
John, Harry and Graham
were the best of friends.


The Sharpest Chin in the World
A story by Alex Case

His eyebrows are
long, his nose hair is
longer, and
his nose is the longest
in the world.
His armpits are
smelly, his farts are
smellier, and
his breath is the
smelliest in the world.
His cheeks are fat, his
legs are fatter and
his tummy is the
fattest in the world.
His elbows are sharp,
his nails are sharper,
and his chin is the
sharpest in the whole
But his silly faces are
funny, his silly noises
are funnier, and his
jokes are the funniest
in the whole world.
So I’m still glad that he’s
my Dad.
