The Tree And The Vegetables The Tree And The Vegetables

The Tree And The Vegetables
Once upon a time, there was a lovely vegetable patch, on which grew a very leafy tree. Both the patch and the tree gave the place a wonderful appearance, and were the pride and joy of the garden's owner. What no one knew was that the vegetables in the patch and the tree couldn't stand each other. The vegetables hated the tree's shadow, because it left them only just enough light to survive. The tree, on the other hand, resented the vegetables because they drank nearly all the water before it could get to him, leaving him with just enough to...

The Last Dinosaurs
In a lost land of tropical forests, on top of the only mountain in the region, trapped inside an old volcanic crater system, lived the last ever group of large, ferocious dinosaurs. For thousands and thousands of years they had survived all the changes on Earth, and now, led by the great Ferocitaurus, they were planning to come out of hiding and to dominate the world once more.

The Paper Rocket The Paper Rocket

The Paper Rocket
There was once a boy whose greatest dream was to have a rocket, and launch it to the moon. Unfortunately, he had little money and couldn't afford one. One day, at the side of a path, he found a box for one of his favourite kinds of rocket. Opening it, he found there was only one rocket inside, made of dodgy paper, the consequence of a factory malfunction. The boy was very disappointed, but at least he now finally had a rocket of sorts. He started preparing his plans for the launch. For many days he collected paper of all shapes, sizes...

A Resentful Thumb A Resentful Thumb

A Resentful Thumb
There was once a hand whose fingers were great friends. The owner of this hand started a dangerous job and, despite the care he gave the rest of the fingers, the thumb always came off worse, with lots of cuts and bruises. At first, the other fingers asked the thumb's forgiveness for their clumsiness, and the thumb did indeed forgive them. However, this happened so many times that, one day, the thumb decided to forgive the fingers no more. He stretched himself away from the fingers, and wanted nothing to do with them. Initially, the thumb looked dignified, straight, rigid and aloof. However,... Stories For Kids - Post by : GuruBaron - Date : May 2012 - Author : Pedro Pablo Sacristan - Read : 3533

The Cloudsqueezer The Cloudsqueezer

The Cloudsqueezer
Wincey Wise was a young lady who worked cleaning the King's advisers’ building. She was a very intelligent and studious girl, and wasn't going to waste the opportunity of being around these wise men. Even so, after a year there, listening to their meetings through the keyhole, she was worried. The wise men never talked about anything new. They just went on about old matters: when he did this and he learned that. Wincey had been reading all the books the men mentioned, and about all the subjects they discussed. But there came a time when she didn't know what to learn... Stories For Kids - Post by : luquete - Date : May 2012 - Author : Pedro Pablo Sacristan - Read : 3575

Searching For Stars Searching For Stars

Searching For Stars
Charlie could not remember how many times he had heard his grandpa tell this story: "Everyone's soul," said Grandpa, "is like a fidgety bug. It is always looking about, trying to be happier; more content. Have you noticed that? All this wanting to laugh, to have a good time, to be happy... These things are a sure sign that the soul is forever searching. Souls don't have legs, but they need a way to get from one place to another so that they can keep looking. That's why they live in a body, like yours or mine." "Do they ever escape?" Charlie... Stories For Kids - Post by : mbriceno - Date : May 2012 - Author : Pedro Pablo Sacristan - Read : 1905

Edward And The Dragon Edward And The Dragon

Edward And The Dragon
Edward was the youngest knight in the kingdom. He was still pretty much a boy, but was so brave and intelligent that, without having to fight anyone at all, he had defeated all his enemies. One day, while riding through the mountains, he came across a small cave. On entering it he found it was enormous, and that inside was an impressive castle, so big that he thought the mountain couldn't be real, and that it must have been a facade put there to hide the castle. On nearing the castle, Edward heard the sound of voices. Without hesitating, he climbed over the...

The Photographic Elephant The Photographic Elephant

The Photographic Elephant
There was once an elephant who wanted to be a photographer. How his friends would laugh when they heard him talk about it! - "How silly," said some, "there aren't any cameras for elephants!" - "What a waste of time," others would say, "there's nothing to photograph here anyway..." But the elephant kept following his dream, and, piece by piece, he managed to cobble together some old bits of junk and some spare parts, and ended up with a camera of sorts. With this camera, the elephant had to design practically everything himself, from a button he...

The Flying Contest The Flying Contest

The Flying Contest
Two bats were training for a great flying competition in which all bats took part. On the day of the race, the smaller bat flew incredibly well, clearly deserving the prize. The other bat, although very disappointed at not having won, ran to congratulate him, while the other bats started criticising him or went away in anger. Grateful, the new champion decided to share the prize. The little bat had not only won the race and the prize, but he had also won a friend. And all this came about from knowing how to lose in a sporting manner.... Stories For Kids - Post by : jay12 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Pedro Pablo Sacristan - Read : 2684

The Bad Neighbours
There was once a man who went out to look for a job. As he was passing his neighbour's house, an important piece of paper fell out of the man's pocket. His neighbour happened to be looking out the window. He saw the piece of paper fall, and he thought: "What a disgrace! That guy deliberately let that fall out of his pocket. He's trying to mess up the front of my house, and he's being sneaky about it, too!" But instead of going out and saying something, the neighbour planned his revenge. That night, he took his waste-paper basket and went to the... Stories For Kids - Post by : Ben2005 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Pedro Pablo Sacristan - Read : 3197

Win Or Lose Win Or Lose

Win Or Lose
Pete hated losing at anything. His parents, teachers, and many others, said he didn't know how to lose, but the truth of it was that he couldn't stand losing, not even at marbles. It was so great, and he felt so good, when he won, that he never wanted to give up that feeling; not for anything in the world. On top of that, losing made him feel precisely the opposite. It seemed to Pete that losing was the worst thing that could happen to anyone. If there was a game Pete wasn't brilliant at, he simply wouldn't play...

The Boy Who Made A Country Smile The Boy Who Made A Country Smile

The Boy Who Made A Country Smile
There was once a truly miserable land where everyone was depressed. There was no reason for this to be so: the people were normal, and they led normal lives, but they were very sad. One day, a baby boy was born. He was a really good child; always thinking of others, always clean and tidy, always quick to do as he was told... he was equally good in all such matters. As a result, the boy managed to cheer up everyone around him. People saw him and wanted to be like him, so they behaved cheerfully, and, in turn, cheered up others. The...

The Happy Sweeper
A loutish kid and his mates were visiting a theme park. They arrived very early and everything was empty and clean. A park cleaner came by, singing and dancing as he swept. As everything was already so clean, the group of friends found it amusing to see how the cleaner worked so joyfully, and so early in the morning. They had a great time making fun of him. But the cleaner didn't mind, and just kept sweeping the area clean. So the gang started throwing bags and bits of paper on the ground, 'to give him something to do'. When more visitors...

Prince Lapio Prince Lapio

Prince Lapio
There was once a very unfair Prince, although he seemed like the perfect Prince: handsome, brave, and intelligent. Prince Lapio gave the impression that no one had ever explained to him the nature of justice. If two people came to him over some dispute, expecting him to resolve the matter, he would decide in favour of whichever one seemed most charming, or most handsome, or whoever had the best-looking sword. Tired of all this, Lapio's father, the King, decided to get a wise man to teach his son about justice. "My wise friend, please take him away," said the King, "and don't...

The Creature In The Attic The Creature In The Attic

The Creature In The Attic
The first anyone heard about the creature in the attic was after one of the children went up there to look for an old book. Everything was dark, but between the shadows, the boy could clearly see two eyes watching him intently from above, with a horrific expression on its face. They were big eyes, about a metre apart, giving some idea of the size of that terrible being's head. The boy yelled with every bit of air in his lungs, ran out, and locked the door, leaving the monster in the attic, growling to himself. For the next two days the...

Once upon a time a boy was walking through the forest, looking for fruit. He spent so much time searching, that night fell and he got lost. He scrambled through the darkness for a long while, until he could hear a loud disturbance off in the distance. He followed the noise and discovered that it was coming from a small cottage, with a light at its window. The boy thought that maybe he could spend the night with the people inside. He knocked at the door several times, but no one answered. There was still a huge racket coming from inside,...

The Tidy Toys
Once upon a time, a boy moved houses. On entering his new bedroom he saw that it was full of toys, storybooks, pens, pencils... and all of it was perfectly tidy.

The Island Of Inventions The Island Of Inventions

The Island Of Inventions
The first time Luca heard talk of the Island Of Inventions, he was still very young, but the wonders he heard about sounded so incredible to him that they were forever engraved in his memory. Ever since he was a little boy, he never stopped searching for clues to investigate. Clues which might lead him to that place of wonder. He read hundreds of adventure books, histories, volumes of physics and chemistry; even music. Taking a little from here, a little from there, he arrived at quite a clear idea of what the Island Of Inventions was really like. It was a...
