Worms for Dinner
Since it was a holiday, mother told her two chicks, Chu- Chu and Chuza, to switch off the T.V. and go dig up some worms for dinner. Your father has invited old Mr. Rooster for dinner.
The chicks were very upset, since it was a lovely February morning. They soon started to enjoy their work. They collected a lot of worms~~~ some curly, some squishy, one smug, the other a bug, one long, one strong, one light, while some were straight. They packed them tightly in a box. Suddenly, Chuza spotted a thick, long, juicy worm.
Though they had collected many worms, this one would certainly make their mother happy and she might reward them with an extra helping of grain. So, Chuza ran and pecked at the worm, but couldn't pull it out, so he called Chu-chu and both of them pulled hard. While they were pulling hard, the worm pulled away with a sudden jerk and both of them fell over backwards. From behind the fence, out popped Mr. Field Mouse with a sore tail! He scolded the two chicks, who took hold of their worm- box and fled home!

Green Creatures in the Dark
It was our first adventure camp from school. After a long day at Dumduma, we were about to sleep in our cottages. Suddenly, I noticed tiny spots of green light outside my window. I was so curious, I tiptoed outside, to explore. I could not believe what I saw in front of my eyes! Two creatures, about four feet tall, fluorescent green in colour were moving about in the grass. They had the face of a rat and the body of a wasp. Before I could recover from my shock, I heard voices.
A Strange Meeting
I followed the strange creature silently almost on tiptoes. It moved around my neighbour hood doing strange things. I was astounded to see the creature walking, at times flying like a bird by flapping its hands to stay up in the air and at times crawling under bushes like an infant. Instead of fingers it had feathers and its palms were padded. This creature had an antenna, coming out of its forehead. It seemed as if the antenna was showing him the direction to take. While I followed this creature I noticed, he seemed to be interested in the flora and fauna of our neighbour hood. It was busy collecting samples of plants.
