Chapter one

The Giant's Daughter

The Giant's daughter hated the castle she had inherited after her father fell off the beanstalk. He was a cruel man who took pleasure in singing the old family song

Fee! Fie! Foe! Fum!
I smell the blood of an English man
Be he alive or be he dead
I'll grind his bones to make my bread

And bread he baked, but more than this he also baked cakes and pastries of all shapes and sizes which she still missed. He was famous across the sky for his Belgian buns ( made with real Belgians of course) and French stick loaves ( made with French cyclists legs) and Cornish pasties ( made with Cornish miners)

But to be honest she was pleased to have the castle to herself, it was time she made some changes and over the next few days she decided to clear the castle of all the old junk which her father had hoarded.
Chapter two

So she ordered

So she ordered the servants to clear out the west wing and haul all the furniture and decorations outside and place them on the castle drive. She looked at it all, swords, shields, tapestries, paintings and without a twinge of regret nodded to the servant to begin.

Then the giant's daughter got to work revamping the west wing, she plastered and painted throughout, all white and bright, none of the old dark fusty colours. The halls became sleek and modern, open plan with sparse pieces of black leather furniture interspersed with coffee tables and angle poised lamps. Magazines of stylish interiors were neatly piled everywhere and centrally in the room stood a very large curved TV.

She sat down in one of her new chrome edged recliners with a view across a gently rolling cloudscape, from here she could clearly see the servants struggling with the furniture as they took piece after piece to the edge then pushed it off to litter the land below.

The Mummy in a Coffin surprise

Once, Laurel and Mary lived in a castle with their dad who was a giant. They all loved baking. So they went to the cake shop. A young cute baby with brown silky wearing a sleep suit started to cry and scream. But the giant was used to it. When they got home they made a firefly spit cake. The giant swashed one lucky firefly and the girls spat in the bowl. Three hours later the cake was ready and they all agreed to do a gigantic spring clean.
They found a slightly smelly carrot that smelt like a pair of worn socks. They found all sorts of rubbish, insects and even a yellow old and dusty bones of a rattle snake.

They also found a maroon coloured diamond shaped coffin.
2 hours later, the antique went CRASH BANG CRASH!
The mummy crashed a posh, loving mansion. In the mansion lived 21 week old Curtis, 3 year old Paige, 9 year old Tilly, 37 year old Corinne and 38 year old Darren. The coffin crushed the house into pieces. Tilly was so angry because the coffin had crushed her homework into a million pieces. Her homework was to make a 3D model of a beanstalk. Her model was made of fossil rock!

Corinne and Darren opened the coffin to see what was inside. Inside was lead a old mans body with a note saying i am Uncle Raymond. The family were devastated to remember that Uncle Raymond was the Uncle of the family 1000 years ago. They all went to see an archaeologist. The smart, tall and skinny man said " do you have any more evidence that Uncle Raymond is really who it said he was on the note?"
The family had to say no. Just then, a ghost called Destiny who was wearing a farmers hat loaded a picture of Raymond and how he died. In a blink of a pretty eye, Raymond shouted" excuse me?"
Paige shouted " HE WAS KIDNAPPED!!!!"
As by magic Paige was correct.
" I hope not," Tilly said in a worried.

The hippos teeth were as sharp as swords.
After that they went to the mini banana bridge but when they got there the sides were on fire and there was a whole with a shark in the middle jumping up and down and the bridge was very very wobbly.

The 4 things that fell .

Once upon a time there was a giant's daughter, called Emma who lived in an amazing, beautiful and huge castle high up in the fluffy, white clouds which floated in blue sky. She ordered her dad's servants to throw all of the junk that her father had bought over the years off the edge of the soft clouds.

The first thing they throw off was a book of laws. All of the pages fluttered off like birds and floated down to the ground below. They covered a man, whose name was Mark, an important lawyer, like a blanket because there were so many pages. He thought he was dreaming as the pages were so big and the letters were massive . Then the sound it made when fell off was sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssswwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwpppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

The third thing that Emma made the harassed servants push over the edge was the worlds 'BIGGEST GARDEN GNOME !' whose name was Tibult .He was a magic gnome who was painted in bright colours - ruby red for his pointed hat and sky blue clothes. He could grant all your wishes and his favourite food was sweet, marmalade sandwiches.Then the sound was aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww SMASH CRASH BANG .

The fourth thing that the tired servants threw over was Emma's whaleshark but luckily she spotted what they had done and managed to catch the slithery shark with her long, giant arms . She told her servants "lets not do this any more , lets leave it all how it is. "

Everything they threw off the cloud fell into the kids Adam and Eve's back garden . One night all of the things came back to life and attacked the giants but that is a another story for a nother day .Fear well for now by .

Little Blue Riding Hood

One sunny day, Blue riding Hood was in her house baking a pineapple pie. The pie smelt sweet. The kitchen was a little bit big with a metal oven on the side.

Then little Blue Riding Hood skipped through the dark, spooky forest. Suddenly, a big metal mirror with a light pink edge smashed into a large tree. It had fallen from up in the sky. Little Blue Riding Hood stopped and she crept to the mirror. She looked at the mirror and she tried to pick it up but it was to heavy for her.

Little Blue Riding Hood saw another little girl in the mirror. She had short, brown, shoulder length, curly hair. She was was wearing a pretty, red dress.

The girl in the mirror sang a song "My name is Rolla and the giant zapped me into the mirror!" Rolla said. "You need to smash the mirror to let me out!" Said Rolla.

So little Blue Riding Hood got a small heavy, sharp rock and threw it at the glass. The glass smashed!

Rolla came out of the mirror with a happy face. They skipped to Granny's house and gave Granny the delicious pineapple pie.
"Thank you!" said Granny happily.

Chapter ten

The End

The giant's daughter was enjoying her minimalist decor of the west wing as her servant brought dinner of beans on toast.

She took one bite and the dry white processed toast made her pine for her fathers old mill to run again; the mill which ground the flour and made incredible breads, pastries and pies for all the sky castles for as far as the eye could see. Oh what she would do for a Welsh cake right now (made with real Welsh choral singers of course!)

But at that very moment a grounds man servant was lifting a massive family crest painted on a shield to throw off the ramparts. Through the window she glimpsed the motif of mill wheel and Fee! Fie! Fo! Fum! written in a banner across the top.

No, not that she thought beginning to regret all those old artefacts which she had ordered to be thrown off. Running through the castle she caught the servant just in time as the shield teetered on the edge.

'Stop!' She shouted and it was saved in the nick of time.

Now, where are the keys to the mill house, I've had enough of cheap breads made with grain, it's time we renewed our family history and got back into grinding and baking!

But for the mill wheel to turn again, she would have to find some human bones to grind, so she commanded the castle navigator to take them down. As cloud castle descended it became foggy on the ground below. So thick was the fog the castle created people used to call it a pea-souper!

'Navigator, where are we?' She asked. 'Yorkshire I believe, my lady' came the reply. 'Great we'll have to bake some proper Yorkshire puddings, with extra gravy too.'

So she sang, in her lady giants voice ready for the mill wheel to turn once more.

Fee! Fie! Foe! Fum!
I smell the blood of an English man
Be he alive or be he dead
I'll grind his bones to make my bread
