Ava’s History Project

Ava used a real quill to produce her scrap book about her visit to Hampton Court earlier this year:

Behold…. Xavier’s Cockentrice

Xavier in Marlin followed up his roasted boar’s head by stitching together a rabbit and a chicken to make the legendary Cockentrice. This was a mythical creature, brought out at feasts to amaze and amuse the dinner guests.

Billy Beast’s Wedding by Evie

At the wedding of Billy Beast and Beauty, Slime Castle, Transylvania, the bride looked stunning. She wore a long grey dress with black, yellow and green patches on the armpits. Her veil was made of real life brambles, they must have gone to great expense to get that. She also went for the cockroach style, cockroach bracelets, a cockroach necklace, even the wedding ring had a cockroach on it.

Billy almost matched his bride, but even he can’t be THAT good looking, no matter what his parents say. He wore a brand new mouldy waistcoat, complete with a worm for his tie. Oh, and to match his fiancée’s style, he had a cockroach on his shoulder.

The castle was decorated beautifully, this perfect venue for two beasts to get married. The walls were already covered in sludge, so they hardly had to do anything for the wedding, apart from adding a few slugs on the floor.

Billy’s dad, Benjamin Beast, insisted on being the minister, on the grounds that if a father should walk the bride down the aisle, then why shouldn’t the father on the other side not be involved?

The vows were incredibly touching and by the time they were over, there was not a dry eye in the house! These vows included the original: “I swear upon this ring that you take a bath, I will desert you and let you starve!” I bet you’re all reading this and crying!


Evie’s writing was inspired by a story from this book by Laurence Anholt
