Stars the Terrified

Once upon a time there lived a bunny named Stars. Stars was not an ordinary bunny!

Once upon a time there lived a bunny named Stars.

Stars was not an ordinary bunny!

He was gray with orange polk-a-dots.

His most favourite treat was honey-glazed carrots.

Stars wouldn’t dare to enter the spooky forest in Happy Valley with his big family.

He was very brave but he didn’t act like it.

Why didn’t he want to go inside the spooky forest?

Because he was scared to enter it.

Even though he was brave he was terrified of the wolves.

There were a lot of wolves in the forest.

The wolves loved to chase Stars around.

Even the bears loved to chase him around.

This kept happening for two years.

Then one day the spooky forest changed to be a nice forest.

It changed because it was magical.

Stars was so relieved that most of the wild animals stopped chasing him forever.

But there was one creature that never stopped chasing him even though the forest had changed.

That creature was the guacamole!

It was hairy and it had razor sharp teeth and gigantic feet.

It was very evil and the magic didn’t work on it.

As a result, Stars ran away forever.
