This will be the last Sunday story unless there is a call for more. This is a short children’s story which I can imagine with lots of lovely pictures in it. It’s actually an award-winning story too! It’s about a South American Mammal called a kinkajou and there’s a picture to show you what one of those is.
Cheeky, a Kinkajou living in the forests of North Brazil was awoken by a loud THUD! Kinkajous are nocturnal creatures so Cheeky was not happy to be woken at Noon. Sleepily, Cheeky peered out of his hole to see what all the fuss was about. He stared in horror. For what it was making the racket was a pair of loggers out to make some money. They had terrifying machinery and they looked like they meant business.
The loggers looked around and decided to cut down Cheeky’s tree. Cheeky didn’t know what the loggers were saying but he did know he had to get out the way of them. Very quietly, he sneaked out of his nest. When he was halfway down the tree, he was spotted.
“Oy look here, Fred,” said one of the loggers. Fred looked up. Cheeky was rooted to the spot.
“Just get rid of it,” Fred said.
“We can’t cut down its home” complained the first logger, whose name was George.
“Look, if every logger worried about destroying stupid creatures homes there would be a whole world covered in trees!” yelled Fred. The arguing went on and on. Cheeky was still frozen on the spot. Luckily, after an age of arguing, a ranger of the park came along on his daily round.
“What have we here then?” he said. The loggers looked up and they knew the game was up.
“You’ll come quietly I suppose?” laughed the ranger.
“What’ll happen to our machinery – it costs a lot y’know?” Fred asked. The ranger just grunted. As the loggers were taken away, Cheeky climbed back up to his nest. He had a lot of sleep to catch up on. Meanwhile the loggers were given an extremely large fine that they couldn’t afford to pay.
There you go, that one is very short but quite sweet I think. Remember that there will be no more Sunday stories unless you ask for more. And don’t forget to comment with what your perfect sandwich is for a chance to become Minion of the Month!
