Charlie Crow And The North Wind
Charlie woke up and popped his head out of the window of his tree house to see which way the wind was blowing.
Today the wind was from the North, it was strong and cold.
Charlie opened his front door and launched himself into the air, up he flew and then he saw the billowing clouds that came with the North Wind.
“Whossshhhhello hello Charlie Crowwwhhhoooossssshhhh” said the North Wind in a voice that gave Charlie goose bumps and reminded him of Winter mornings.
“Whosssshhhhh do you want to ride in my cloud with me on this fine breezy morning ?sssssshhhhooooohhhwwww”, “Oh yes please” said Charlie because he was a very polite Crow indeed and riding clouds was one of his favourite things,
“Whhhooooshhh Whoosshhhhhhop on board then” said the North Wind and puffed up some clouds for Charlie to sit on.
No sooner had Charlie Crow sat down than the cloud was rushing through the air at an amazing speed, they flew through Crow Forest and out over wide wide lake going so low as to skim the water, they flew on over Gorse Bank and the Lower Field where Charlie waved to his friend Sam, then the North Wind gathered all his energy and spun the cloud around to head for the Bright Woods, they circled the church then they flew through the village where Charlie waved at his friend Danny the Dalmation.
When they reached Charlies house again the North Wind dropped him off on the ground then shot off again waving and shouting over his shoulder “Whhhoooooossssorry Charlie Crow but there are leaves for me to blowwwwww about and umbrellas to turn inside out, goodbyeeeeeeewwhhoooosshhh”, “Goodbye, come back soon” was the answer Charlie Crow shouted as the North Wind blew away over the trees.
