And here's a little story we wrote for you!




Harry stood in the school playground,

Head to toe drenched from the rain

Hair dripping to his face,

Water bouncing off his brain


‘Now what? My costume’s ruined?’ He cried,

Matilda standing by his side,

Equally soaked,

With a cheeky glint in her eye.


‘Come on Harry, it’s not so bad, it’s just a little shower.

School doesn’t even start for another hour.’


‘Follow me, we’ll get it fixed’, she said.

We’ll make brand new World Book Day outfits.


Running into the classroom,

‘With What?’ Harry called out,

Matilda laughed.

Picking up pieces of paper, ‘Whatever’s about!’


Curiously watching, what’s she looking for?

Crawling around on their classroom floor.


Popping up from under a table she cried.


‘Harry, who’s your favorite book character?’


…..A long pause, for what seemed like an hour….


He leapt to his feet with excitement,

Claws out, grinning from cheek-to-cheek

Standing tall on his pointy-little feet.


‘Cat In the Hat, No doubt about that!’ came Harry's shout.

Matilda coming in closer to check him out.


‘Well you’ll need some pointy ears…..’

Tearing some paper into triangular pairs,


‘…A giant bowtie.’

Tying her scarf around his neck


‘….And………of course, a cat certainly needs a tail.’


Matilda ran to her coat rail.

Hanging poised ready for action hung her Black Cat Tail.


She fixed it around Harry’s waist, took a step back.


She looked,

She saw him,



He stretched up his neck, wiggled his hips,

Flowing the following words from his kitty-cat lips.


“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.” - THE CAT IN THE HAT
