We wish to go places but at the end of the day, long to return home, isnt it? Here is a wonderful story of a boy and the moon, by 6 year old Ryan Advik.B from Nellore of Little Readers Nook, Chennai.
Once upon a time, there was boy who wondered about the moon. He loved gazing at the night sky. He always dreamt of going to the moon.
He used to hear stories about the moon and the stars all day long.
One day, he felt sure he had to go to the moon.
The boy asked the butterfly in his garden, whether the butterfly could give him a ride to the moon.
But the butterfly said, “The Moon!! Oh boy, I can’t carry you to the moon. I am
too little to carry you.
Why don’t you ask the bird?”
The boy went to the bird which was sitting on a tree and asked whether the bird could give him a ride to the moon. But the bird said, “The Moon!! It’s too high for me to give you a ride. I will be tired soon. Why don’t you just take a flight? ”
The boy went to the airport to get a ticket to moon.
“One ticket to the Moon please!!” asked the boy to the ticket seller. But soon realised that there wasn’t any flight to the moon.
The boy was very sad and immediately knew what he had to do.
He made a rocket and set off to the moon.
He met some alien friends on the moon, played and laughed with them and ate some jellies. He taught them how to play hopscotch.
He wandered everywhere on the moon and soon got bored. He started to
miss his home.
He said bye to his alien friends and set off to home in his rocket.
He parked the rocket in his garage and ran to his mom, who was baking his favourite chocolate cake.
The boy gave his mother a tight hug and said ‘No better place than home sweet home’.
