Year Five and Other Stuff We Made Up

‘One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.’

– Goethe

I love it when kids are inspired to create something. Whether it’s a short story, a stop-motion movie, a drawing or something that no one in the world has ever imagined.

Last year I visited a school in Brisbane, St Elizabeth’s, and spoke about my books Galactic Adventures and My Life & Other Stuff I Made Up. The year five students from that fine institution have since produced a book titled Year 5 and Other Stuff We Made Up, full of inventive stories about monsters and numbats and curses and kids in space and giant chickens.

I thought I’d share it with you.

Here’s a link to another funny story by a talented kid – Morris by 12-year-old Raph Atkins.
