FIGHTING WORDS STORIES
A HOP INTO SPACE
Aughascasla National School – 5th & 6th Class
Once upon a time there lived a Giant Superfast Rabbit called Sir Hops-a-lot. He shared his home, an underground bunker in the Amazon, with his best friend Chopper the pig.
Chopper never stops talking. Morning, noon and night he talked and talked and Sir Hops-a-lot never could get a word in.
Every night Hops and Chopper sat gazing at the moon and wondered what it is made of.
Hops had a dream of being the first rabbit in space and to discover that the moon is actually made out of cheese.
Even though Hops is a super fast rabbit and can run at great speed, he has one problem – he is terrified of heights!!
Despite Choppers attempts to encourage him to overcome his fear, all efforts fail. How is Hops going to overcome his fear of heights if he is to realise his ambition of becoming the first rabbit in space?…………
JIMMY & THE SILLY SAUSAGE

THE SIEGE OF BANANIO
The Spa National School – 5th Class
One day Maniac the Monkey was walking along the street when he bumped into Straight Banana who was his best friend. Unfortunately, he knocked Straight Banana down the hill and Straight Banana got angry and decided to gather an army of banana friends to destroy the monkey race.
They hold a secret meeting in the middle of the banana tree but they didn’t realise that there was a spy at the meeting who was dressed as a banana.
He overheard the bananas plans so that when the monkeys ate them they would become ill.
The spy goes back to Monkeyland to tell them what the bananas are planning.
When the monkey went back to HQ he did not know that the bananas had fitted a secret tracker to his tail.
