When 12 year Kier Hodson dreamed up a “50 word saga” for a school competition, he never imagined it would end up in print!
Kier, a Y8 pupil said he was inspired by two of his dreams: “in one of them, I was in a boat and really enjoyed the trip; in the other one, I hated the boat trip and that became the twist in the piece." Now his work has been selected to be published in the New Year. Kier is still surprised by his success – “I was never the creative type! I feel quite good about it!”
The Dream Boat
It is a sunny day and the Dream Boat rides the waves. There are five people on the Dream Boat. They all have lots of fun. They want to come into the docks, but the Dream Boat says no and goes faster. The people got really scared. The nightmare boat.
