Beth's beginning

Congratulations to Beth Garrigan, Newbottle Primary School, who won the "Beginnings" competition I ran with the Y5/6 class at Houghton le Spring Library. She has won a signed copy of Super Maxwell and the Burning Boys, which is on it's way to her now - snow and Post Office permitting. Her beginning, which is wonderfully imaginative and intriguing as all good beginnings to stories should be, follows below:

Suddenly there was a beautiful glittering array of parrots flying across the misty waterfall, which gleamed in the burning sun. It was paradise. Mermaids swam in the deep sparking ocean and flowers sprouted in the meadows where dew drops covered the tall trees of the valleys. I just lay there on the sandy beach looking into the mountains as the sunset on that magical day that changed Rose’s life.
Beth Garrigan
