Children’s Picture Book (minus the pictures)

Beastly

Hazel has a secret.

No one in her family knows it.

Not her mum, or dad, or gran or brother Ben.

Hazel has a secret.

It lives under her bed, beside her old beanbag and toy dinosaurs.

It’s a big blue and green and purple secret.

Hazel quickly eats her dinner and brushes her teeth.

She hugs dad and gran and Ben good night,

Then drags her mum upstairs to tuck her into bed.

When the light is turned out and the door clicks shut…

Whoosh

Out jumps…

Cazalla the beastly

Cazalla throws Hazel’s blankets through the air.

“Good evening, good night and good play Hazel” Cazalla shouts,

Scooping Hazel up out of bed, twirling her around the room.

“What shall we play tonight?” Hazel asks.

Cazalla scratches her blue and green belly and pats her knobbly knees,

Looking around the room until…

“Racing cars!” Cazalla says.

“Vroom” Hazel says, steering past the cupboard.

“Vroom” Cazalla says, steering up and over the bed.

“Vroom” they both say crashing into each other and sprawling across the floor.

“What shall we play next?” Cazalla asks.

Hazel rubs her head and wiggles her toes,

Looking around the room until…

“Dress Ups!” Hazel says.

Cazalla puts a blonde wig on and a yellow tutu and spins and leaps across the room.

Hazel finds a pirates hat, drapes herself in pink and orange scarves and looks out from the bed through her telescope.

“Quick Cazalla, the great Crocodile Pirate Captain is coming for us!”

Hazel and Cazalla build a fort out of sheets and pillows and boxes.

They climb inside and hide from the Crocodile Pirate Captain.

“Shhshh” Hazel whispers, looking out her telescope.

“Shhshh” Cazalla whispers, peeking through the window.

They hide all through the night…

And into the morning…

Hazel has a secret.

No one in her family knows it.

Not her mum, or dad, or gran or brother Ben.

The End

Note: If it had pictures I’m sure it would make more sense, but I have spent the better part of today trying to draw one picture for the first page… after several hours of my drawings on paper not looking like the images in my mind, I gave up and accepted the fact that I really can not draw 🙂
