  • The Red Prince

    So far this book is a great book my favourite part so far is when all the snow came down because it was a beautiful relaxing view.

    Just Imagine comment: Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the story with us. I wonder if the Red Prince feels the same way about the snow?

  • A Jolly Quest

    We really enjoyed creating A Jolly Quest.
    Roll on the next competition…

    Just Imagine comment: Hello Merrylands Gladiators. What an amazing Quest you have created. We look forward to seeing your next challenge.

    Just Imagine comment: Hello Laindon Park Gladiators. Thank you for sharing your display wall with us. Let us know what you think of The Cake the Wolf and the Witch, when you get to the end. we hope you enjoy the new book…. it is completely different.

  • Reading ‘The Cake ,the Wolf and the Witch’

    So far I have read just past chapter 17 and it has being AMAZING!!! In case anyone hasn’t read up to to this bit, I’m sorry for any spoilers but my favorite bit was when Max and Nettle climbed up Rapunzel’s hair which was white.

    Just Imagine comment: we love hearing about you favourite parts of the story. The fairy tale characters are different to how they appear in the original stories. Have you been noticing the differences?

  • The Cake the Wolf and the Witch

    I have already started this book and have read a bit past chapter 14 and it is FAB!!!

    I really enjoyed the part where the witch took Wild to her castle in her cauldron.

    Just Imagine comment: It looks as though you are really enjoying this book. We hope that the Merrylands Gladiators will enter this month’s competition .
