In writing club this half term the children are re-imagining fairy tales as Jon Scieszka did so wonderfully in The Stinky Cheeseman. Here is one of the stories that will appear in our magazine later this month:

Once upon a time there lived a young girl named Rapunzel.
Rapunzel had been locked in a tower all her life, never to be let down. She had very long hair, but instead of the hair being “hair” it was spaghetti!
One day Rapunzel was looking out of the tower when a big fat man came along.
‘I’m your Prince,’ said the man untruthfully.
‘Then come and rescue me,’ said Rapunzel.
But instead of rescuing her he sprinkled cheese on her spaghetti hair and ate it all up.
‘Are you a food critic?’ Rapunzel said.
‘She’s onto me,’ the man said and he ran away.
