This is a story about a leaf. This is not any ordinary leaf but apparently, a leaf that is in a dilemma about eating other leaves. Unfortunately, for Leafy the Leaf, he finds it difficult not to eat his best friends (the other leaves). But Leafy is very hungry until one day a slice of pizza landed on him. For Leafy, this is his worst nightmare because pizza is his greatest fear!
This brilliant story and character created by primary kids from St. Colmchille’s JNS, Knocklyon, 2nd Class is the reason why the Fighting Words workshop is constantly alive with imaginative ideas from these young brilliant authors. As usual, it has been such a pleasure to illustrate their story. Each student even came up with their own story and different characters during the individual session. Some of them even decided to write completely different stories. One thing for sure, I know that the future of creative writing will be in good hands because we have these wonderful young authors to look up to. Here is their story at the Fighting Words website: https://www.fightingwords.ie/stories/story-leafy-leaf.
Enjoy! You might be inspired to write a story.
