Jess loved crystals. She had a huge collection . Pink crystals were her favourite.
One day Jess and her dad went on a bicycle ride to try and find some new crystals. They stopped at the Victorian bandstand in Grand Central Park.
Usually the one-man band, wearing his crystal covered hat, would be here with his miniature gorilla that danced when he played, but today the bandstand was empty. Jess was really disappointed. As she turned to start the journey home she heard the tunes of the one-man band in the distance. Jess laughed, she would see the gorilla dance after all!

Once there was a pink gorilla and she was walking through the woods when she saw a house that looked very grand because it had soldiers guarding it. Just then she saw a mouse walking out of the door of the sparkly mansion. Quickly she scurried over to the mouse and introduced herself. “Hello my name is Georgina, what is your name?”
“My name is Mickey” said the mouse” would you like to come and have an umbongo juice and then we could go on a bicycle ride, what kind of animal are you? ”
“I’m a gorilla” Georgina laughed happily.

he met a pink, amusing snake who was a clown in a grand circus. “I know how to cheer you up!” said the pink anaconda, “come to my show and join in with me for the act!”
When the gorilla arrived, he found his clown costume. It had big red and yellow shoes and a spotty
clowns overall. Then gorilla stepped on to the stage in his costume. The anaconda sneaked up to the gorilla and went “boo” and a bucket of silver paper went flying through the air and landed on the gorillas head! The crowd cheered and the anaconda laughed. Surprisingly the gorilla laughed as well!

Today it was her 97th birthday. She gazed out of the window. The reflection in the shed window was that of her old dance academy. There on the window sill were her old ballet shoes unworn for many years.

Blossom was her name. She remembered the posters that were displayed all around the town.


Blossom was passionate about her ballet . She had trained every night all through her younger days and had become very famous but now as she was too old to dance she enjoyed remembering her happy dancing days.

Very happy memories!

In a dark gloomy street there was a witch standing grumpy staring at a shop. She thought the shop was a bit dirty and needed cleaning up. So she broke in and started to clean the windows and then she mopped the floor! The witch then said to herself, “maybe I should work here and wear these pink shoes.” The witch thought she could call the shop, “Brooms and Shoes”. She started to put brooms and shoes in the clean shop and then the witch smiled because she was so happy. She had to go home and tell her cat.

It all began in the town of Mixemupalot.

A town where nothing was normal.The trees were pink, the sky was yellow and the sea was white.

Down Sunnyside lane Mr Getitwrongalot (the local chef) was working on his new menu.It was the menu for the queen’s birthday party and as it was for the Queen it had to be just perfect.

His starter was treacle sponge soup, his main course was apple pie, mushy peanuts and gravy but his pudding was the masterpiece!

A huge vegetable trifle where the custard tasted like mustard…YEUCH!

Well, what else would you except in a town called Mixemupalot!
