Catching a Crate Creature

Every time a parcel arrives at our home the children get excited.  Is it for us they chime.  Well quite often it isn’t but one parcel that was for them held something truly monstrous.  Hidden within the deep darkness of the bag was a crate, and locked within, a creature with glowing eyes that made monster noises.  Was it friendly or just grumpy from it’s travels?  The children were about to find out soon enough.

In dived an arm and fished out the crate which shook from the motion made by its prisoner.  A tongue hung out of the crate bars, a quick pull of it resulted in more ghastly noises.  The outside of the box was labelled with a name “Blizz”.  The crate was sealed firmly shut with a giant chain and humongous padlock.  Then a sound was heard slurp, slurp slurp, a fart, some other strange noises and then snoring.  All was silent for what seemed like hours.  When the inhabitant awoke it was much calmer.  A snack and a nap had done him a world of good.

Feeling brave the children opened up the crate using the crow bar and out popped the monster who was really a big softie in more than one sense of the word.

He wasn’t just friendly but he also had a super soft fur from head to toe.  For hours and hours the children and Blizz played but, when it was time for him to go back into the box he was nowhere to be seen.

“Oh dear,” the children cried in despair, “we’ve lost our new monster friend”.  But then they had an idea…….
