A Tale of Two Friends 🐧

The Boy

Today I was opening the door and there was a penguin! I went shopping but it followed me! I went to my room to tidy up and it followed me! So I thought It must be lost! I went to the coffee shop to see if there were any posters for a missing penguin, but there were none there, I went to the dock to ask the local seagulls, but they just ignored me. I asked the sailor of the seas, but even he didn’t know! So I went to bed, unsuccessful and sad with the penguin lying beside me. In the morning though I had more hope, because I had discovered that penguins lived in the south pole. But first I needed to get there. We packed all we needed, food that kind of stuff, I said bye to my parents and then went to the harbour. There was a boat just about to go, I shouted with all my might, but it was no use, my voice could not be heard over the loud noise of the boat. So I had to go back home and get MY boat out, and see if that was in good condition. Luckily, it was and I took that out. Said bye to Mum & Dad and then set of to the south pole. It was a rough journey with waves as big as mountains, but eventually we made it, all in one piece too! I helped the penguin out of the boat,  but he looked really sad, and when I was leaving he looked the saddest I had ever seen him! A couple of minutes later I realised I had made a big mistake, the penguin wasn’t lost it was lonely! I quickly turned around a quickly as lightning & in a couple of minutes I was back but the penguin wasn’t there! I panicked then settled down & started to cry, now I was lonely! But soon I saw a little thing in the distance it was bobbing about like a umbrella with a PENGUIN IN IT! Then I cried again but this time, it was a relieved cry, relieved because I was with my penguin again!!!!! 

The Penguin

I was lost in the far, far oceans I felt lonely, cold and sad. So soon I made up my mind – if I went to England, or some other place I could find a loving and caring child to look after me, but you may be thinking ‘why is this poor old penguin on its own in the deep dark sea, when he should be with his mate on the ice!’ If you are – here is your answer – well in the first place I didn’t even have a mate, I was lonely in the first place, I am on the sea now because I needed someone to look after me – and there you go, my story, pretty boring, anyway I am nearly there! Yay! I am here! “Now, time to find a house! One there, one there, one there and one there, no, nowhere, oh we – Ohh, That One!” and with a hop, skip and jump, of the penguin went , RING RING, RING RING, RING RING, and moments later a boy opened the door, “Umm, Hi There!” “come in,” it was very clean, I LOVED IT! I followed the boy up to some kind of room, I think.

  1. I like your post Adam! It was cool how you gave to sides of the story, one from the penguin’s perspective and one from the boy’s perspective. Nice job!
