The Cotton Candy Tree...(Part 2)

The following is a guest post from Lyn, my daughter. 
Lyn is a twelve- year old who loves singing, reading and 
she's the girl who upholds what is just, especially fair treatment 
and due reward in accordance with standards, honour and law. 
And, the best of all she has a great passion for writing and storytelling.

This story was written and shared during her recent holiday camp.

The great old man started telling...

brown furry body. It had twelve brothers and all of them had the same face.

There was an orange fish. The fish liked singing and humming. There were birds and swans and other creatures too. The creatures were born alongside the Babutra  trees. They lived there happily. They had never  fought nor quarrelled. They always helped each other.

One day, a man named Loo-Ler came to the Miracle Garden on a horse. He planned to chop down the 
Babutra  trees and get their leaves. The leaves were to be made into a special cloth called GicClo. After putting down his tools, he started to chop. One of the trees were felled in a jiffy. The creatures were sad. 

All of a sudden, the sky turned dark. At a distance, the 
awe-stricken creatures saw a bolt of lightning strike the fallen tree, and.....
