We studied the book ‘The Hodgeheg’ by Dick King Smith. It inspired us to write our own hedgehog adventure stories. We hope that you enjoy them!
One day Max woke up at night. He wanted a wonderful adventure. So he went across the road to the park. He went to the hill and dug down and down, further and further. He was digging for a day or two and then he had reached the core of the planet.
One day Max the brilliant adventurer wanted to have an adventure in the dark, dark night to the park. He crept to the park in the dark. He entered the park and rolled up the hill. He was fighting with the bugs. They were terrible. Then Max was all alone, lost and frightened. He saw the hill. He ran up and down till again he was where he started. He went over the dark bridge and then he was home. He slept and slept. The next day he told everyone about his adventures.
The little hedgehog Max went to play over in the park. Max went to get some food. Max was watching the humans. He wanted to cross the street to get to the park. Max crossed the street. He then wanted to go back home .At home Max wanted to go to sleep. He slept for a long time.
Max went to the park. He wanted to have an adventure to look for food. He was frightened from the humans. He wanted an adventure but he had to go over the bridge. It was very dark and he had to go over a pond. The pond was as a big as the sea. It was a super adventure!
Max woke up at night. He wanted to go to the park. He couldn’t go to the park because the park was closed!
Max went to the park. He ate all the apples. Max was lost. He couldn’t find his house!
Max woke up with a yawn. He crept along in the dark, dark, creepy night. Max was hungry. He went to the park so the adventure started. Max went to the creepy, dark underground tunnel. Then he got to the park. He ate everything there!
Max went to the park. He made his own house there. He was eating. He was not scared. He is intelligent, clever and brave.
Max went to the big park for food but there were no bugs. He walked further, “Now wait…..where are the spiders?”, he thought to himself. He ran to Ma and Pa. “Were there no bugs at the park?” “ Yes, no, they are all gone but I have an idea. We will build a park in the garden so we can eat lots”. “Yes, woohoo!”
One dark, dark night Max woke up…..he was STARVING!. He crossed the busy road so that he could get some food from the park. He was so happy. He ate all of the food. The he got lost. Max was crying and it was very spooky! Max was very scared, He followed the road and then he finally got home.

As you can see the children’s writing is progressing really well. They have been working very hard to make their writing interesting for the reader by including lots of adjectives and similes.
Well done my clever Owls! I can see that I have many budding authors in the making, Dick King Smith had better watch out!
