- The Magic Cave, by Mingyan
One day William, Benjamin, and Mia got lost in a forest and found a magic cave and inside were many books. They picked one up and they wished they could go where the story was and then they accidentally went inside the book.
The book was about a very large forest and the friends need to go on a mission to find a magic harp. When one person plays the harp, whatever the other person thinks begins to happen.Read More Read Less
A human with a very, very small heart, four times smaller than a regular heart, put the harp inside a hole which had a tunnel. Where it was deepest is where the harp was. But there was a booby trap that had freezing rays and fire guns.
Inside the cave there was a riddle on a piece of wood that led the kids to the hole.
When they got there they read the riddle again and it said, “The hole is full of traps. Go with your bravery, never stop with your heart.”
The bad guy followed them, but he stepped on the freezing rays and, ‘bzzz’, got frozen. The friends bent down so they didn't get frozen too, and passed the fire guns, but Mia and Benjamin got hit by the fire gun and were toasted!
Willam grabbed the harp, and Mia and Benjamin began to sing together while Willam played.
“I wish, I wish I was back home uh, uh, uh uh uh...”
They all got home and the bad guy came home too and his mom waited for twelve hours for him to be unfrozen. The bad guy never set booby traps again!

"I’m getting to see a side of students that I have never seen before. Students who are normally very quiet and barely talk in class are speaking up and sharing their ideas - oh my gosh, it’s wonderful to see!" Ms John, grade 5 teacher
