I was at the carnival on a Saturday morning when I heard a scream from the merry-go-round. The horses had somehow come alive! They ran off in twenty different directions. It seemed impossible to catch them but to my amazement, a man dressed in black came out of nowhere and started chasing the horses. No sooner had he started that he reappeared dragging a cage with seventeen of the horses. The last three ran towards the cafe where I was enjoying a hot chocolate. He lassoed them and threw them into the cage. That was the most exciting thing I have ever seen!
In the ’13 storey treehouse’ the two main characters are the author, Andy Griffiths and the illustrator, Terry Denton. They are friends and they live together in the treehouse and work together in the treehouse. They write funny stories and draw pictures.
Funnily enough this book has 13 chapters with a different disaster happening in each chapter. My favourite chapter was the last one when Silky, Andy and Terry’s neighbour’s pet cat saves the day. This is a great book for children to read but my Mum enjoyed it too!
Hi 3/4 Baker,
You have nearly finished Term 2 and I’m sure you have continued to work hard whilst I’ve been away! I have been in Florida the last week, in Orlando and Miami. The weather is extremely hot and humid, so we have been swimming in the pool to cool down. We spent four days at theme parks, both Disneyland and Universal Studios which was amazing fun! The scariest ride was The Hulk, which is a huge roller coaster where you get shot out of a cannon and then loop around! We went on that three times!! We also went to Harry Potter world which was really cool, it looked just like the movies!
We needed a rest from all the rides so we went to Miami beach to spend some time relaxing. We went on a gator tour but it poured with rain, so we didn’t get to see any ☹. We also went to NASA and saw some space shuttles which were enormous! Next we are off to Washington DC to see the White House but hopefully not Donald Trump!

I’m having a great time in the USA so far. I have just spent four days in LA doing some sight seeing and shopping! The weather is beautiful and sunny which is such a nice change to Melbourne. Below are some photos of my trip so far! Hope you are all behaving for Mrs Collins!

Storm clouds rolled in from above and trees shook crazily from the wind. Then lightning struck! In the flash of lightning I saw a flicker of fire. Then some trees nearby burst into flames. A tree was heading down, about to land on my head. I ran, I ran as fast as I could because I was running for my life. As I was running I realised that I was getting surrounded by flames. Trees were toppling everywhere. I kept on running but I knew I was going to find my peril eventually. Then a helicopter came and saved me.
