In winter at 1 a.m. everyone was sleeping.
The snow was falling heavily like big balloons on to the frosty ground.
The goblin was a bad guy; he told the snow to fall.
He was happy the flakes were so big.
The chicken was sleeping in the hen house. By 4 a.m. the hen house was
covered in snow.
At 7:10 a.m. I heard from the chicken house "Peck, peck" and "Peck".
I was so shocked I fell out of bed.
I looked out of my window and saw the hen house covered in snow.
I raced for the shovel and got my gloves.
I clambered through the snow to the hen house. I dug and dug and dug.
Finally I saw the hen house door.
I gave the hens some food.
The hen laid a golden egg and I was flabbergasted!
Suddenly the hen started to talk to me, 'I am going to the king of the
goblins to give him the golden egg to feed to the other goblins. This
will make the goblins good, and stop the snow'. Then he flew away.
One hour later it was snowing small flakes, and I heard a "peck, peck"
at my window.
My hen was back.
