The heart warming story of a small town boy, to a fearless daredevil.

“PHOMP, PHOMP” goes my heart beating fast.
“Earth to jack, Earth to jack?” A voice says.
“Huh, awww I was just imaginin-” I start saying
“That you were in pixie and rainbows, fighting with your glitter!” my teacher said, cutting me off.
“Meanie” I mutter to myself.
"Now blah, blah, blah” she starts sayingalso How could I forget miss’ banurs nickname? miss borurs.
“Hey, jack!” the girl, who had a crush on me, hannah whispered to me
“Whaaatt?” I whisper back, dully
“I wanna know what you were-” she says
“ERR” goes my seat moving away from her, also cutting her off.
“Okay, you're just A bit tired today, I know, sorry” she says, sounding a bit sad.
then suddenly the word “daredevil” busted through the blah blah blah of bore speech, which made me come to my senses.
“The annual daredevil contest will be held in the park of north east, and in the contest, the best stunt will win, the judges will judge for the best flips, turns, and less injuries for the winner, and the prize for winning is the slimmest motorbike in Taradale!” she says like a news announcer.
“Wow, I can't believe I understood that!” I chuckled to myself.
“Now put your hand up if you want to enter, then jack will give you a notice.” she says again.
I take one for my self when she gives them to me, then I pass them out, making sure Hannah didn’t touch me.


“I can't do it, I just can’t, dad!” I say, staring at the pool with blow up sharks in there, with a ramp beside it.
“Why did you sign up son, I’m ashamed.” my dad says
“I thought it might be fun, but its scary.”
“well, then try it, son!” he encourages me.
“Okay.” I say
50 degrees 300 degrees 301, and Lift off, FOMP FOMP, BAM goes my bike
“Whaaaaaaaat” my dad says.
“What, dad?” I say
“That was 2 flips then a perfect landing!” he yells picking me up and hugging me. “You can win for sure!”
“Awww, thanks dad” I say.
“And the competitions in 1 week! We got tonnes of time to practice!”
“Wahooo!” I yell.

I think I can beat the others with my loop the loop, then flip, but it’ll have to be perfect.
“Hey, if it isn’t Jack, the old rack of BOOORRRIIIING” my arch rival, Shaun says.
“hrmmmmm” I mumble to me self.
“You’ll see.”
"And now jack, the golden devil!” the announcer says.
“Dumb name, Lozer!” Shaun says
Here I am, my heart beating, sacared to the bedrock on minecraft.
Then I realize, I’m not here for the prize, I’m here for the fun!

then I realize I’m speeding down the track, twirling and twisting, then finally, landing on the spot, screaming “WAHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”
“YOU DID IT, JACK!” my dad says.
“The judges have just decided that Jack wins! the performance was amazing!” The announcer says

The present.

Its been a pretty good life now, writing stories, doin’ stunts, you know, that kinda stuff.
And now I understand Miss Borur’s language.

Also, here's the link to the animation I made!

The eye

The eye
It took a couple of months before we could identify the creature from the eye, its now the year 2013.
How lonely I feel in my laboratory, but thats another story, and this story is about the creature.

Day 1: as we finally identify the creature’s eye, a creature pops up, but it is too big to fit on the screen, so we set off to NASA for their big computer. Once we plug the data file in we see the creature has a huge stone colored body with two big eyes, we zoom in to the body, identifying the inside of it. We see it has a number of five hearts colored deep green. While all the other NASA and my scientists are looking at the hearts, I push the “play” button and it shows that when the heart beats it changes color, so does its eyes and body, now it has a blue heart, red skin, and rainbow eyes. I marvel in this discovery, but things took a turn for the worst, everyone started to hunt these endangered creatures with electro hook, the best thing to kill a fish with a shock!

Day 2: Everyone was asking where to find these creatures, so I had to change my email address, phone, facebook, and twitter! I was stressed even after no more calls. I was literally tearing my hair out because of where to find them and put them in their own safe habitat.
Then someone knocked on the door.
I stepped up opened the door, and it was one of my fellow scientists.
He started saying “Boss Boss!” holding a piece of paper.
I yawned and said “what?”
He said “We found where to find the creature!”
“WHERE?” I shouted. My eyes open wide even with sleep in them.
“In” he said then whispered “Underground in caves using their tails to dig dirt.”
“Well we are going to set off!” I said.

Day 3: we were in my secret sub-plane invention, and we had found a burrow at last, we were inside it. it was a little dusty and dark in the entrance but in the deepest part of the cave it was not dark at all, there was an island with a giant tree on top of it, and it had glowing roots! We were shocked that so much minerals, even jewels were inside this cave.

Day 4. now things were just fine, we realised we don't need to get the creatures a habitat, because they already have there own place of choice.

The ocean.
A note from the scientist: No one but us found the creatures in the end, and I got to name it. I called it the colourful genius.
And no colourful geniuses were harmed in the end, but we got an example of the root, we made it into a lamp.

The End.

My Sydney Diary.

Day 1: My family and I have arrived at sydney, nice place I have to admit.
We've taken our luggage and we're on our way to travel lodge (Hotel).
We got our room and went to bed.
Day 2:because sydney's time is two hours less than new zealand's, so I woke up at 5 AM.
we were exited to see some of the things ing sydney.
Mum, dad, and I went to a sydney park with a water park, then we went to the PHM (Power house museum)
The PHM is a gigantuan museum, It is deticated to sience and technolgy, But also at the moment It has a narnia exbhidition.
I loved the narnia exbhidition, and I got to launch foam rocks with a catapult, and marveled at the frozen water fall.
one of the really cool things about this museum is that it has so much stuff that I like.
But what's even cooler... IS THAT YOU CAN INTERACT WITH LOTS OF STUFF! My favourite exhibit in the main museum was the robot that would actualy chat to you.
I asked him when would he get a body, then he said "Soon, watch out"!
Then we went to bondi beach, we went with mum and dads freinds.
After boni beach we walked to a food court and I had bondi bites (Chicken nuggets.) By this time my legs were wobbly like spahgetti.
So I was pleased that we were going back home even though I had a good day.
Then we went back home.
Day 3: After the museum we traveled by train to one of my mums freind's place.
She lives in one of the suburbs of sydney and it to about half an hour to do it.
Mum's freind aroha is very nice, and she had a cuwte wittle kitten, who wants to play ALL the time
Day 4: because of the time difference of Australia and new Zealand I was waking up at 5 AM, So again we got straight into seeing some more stuff, Today was all about Maritime stuff, so we headed to the maritime museum, And got a big ticket wich meant we could visit the shi- sub and ships. I enjoyed the submarine the most, But I would not want to live on one, because it's very tight, But at least you could stand up in the submarine.
when we got to the endeavour i could just inmagine how dirty it would get, but at this time i was really starving, so we left early to get something to eat.
then we got to my freind mums and slept.
Day 5: We stayed at aroha's house
Day 6:we went into town, and then went on the monorail, And there was my nana and grandpa!
Out of THOUSANDS of people in sydney, we found them!
then we did some "Stuff"
day 7:We're getting on the ship! SO EXITING! From there its down hill, Checking in, And... Stuff.
Now we're finnallllyyyyyyyyyyy In our cabin!!! I see free chocolates!

Letter to V.M. Jones

Dear V.M Jones

Hello, I’m Teva Tait, My school is Parkvale School, and I’m writing a letter to you about Buddy.

I liked your book, Buddy. Very interesting and very emotional too.

Suzanne, she’s a bit weird.

I loved the chapter “The end of the race” When Josh wheels Jakey (Cute name!) in his wheelchair through the finish line.

You described and surprised, and even astonished my class.

Sincerely, Teva Tait.

Licked (my end).

Wow dad was holding up.
time for my secret weapon...
“3... 2... 2...” I whispered to myself, then pulled out dad’s fly swap and swatted my plate.

“Y-y-y-yes?” I stammered.
“YOUR SON IS SO ROTTEN!” says Mr Spinks.
“B-b-b-b-but” says dad.
“BUT NOTHING!” says Mr Spinks.
“You broke your promise na na na na na!” I say.
“3 2 1” I think to myself.
“YOU’RE GROUNDED FOR...” Dad said as I waited for the dreadful word.
“Zero days!” I say, quickly interrupting him.
“NO, 10 WEEKS!” Dad says.
“WHAT, NO, NO, NO, NO,” says Mum.
“One day,” says mum.
“BUT!” says dad.
“No buts,” Mum says like Spinks said.
“Because, he made you break his promise,” says Mum.
“AWWWW MAN,” says Dad.

The End
