Jabberwocky by Mia

In the Tulgey wood, the glowing, silvery moonlight lit up the dark TumTum tree, and the JubJub bird screeched loudly up in the branches.

And then it was silent. James stood in uffish thought as the branches from the trees around him waved around, trying to tear each other to pieces. But the TumTum stood silent, the only sound James could hear was the faint whooshing sound of the trees around him, waving their branches.

Suddenly, a furious roaring came from the middle of the Tulgey wood! Petrified, James stood, clutching the vorpal sword tighter in hand.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son,” he recalled his father telling him. The roaring stopped, and somewhere in the wood twigs snapped and leaves crunched under the weight of the Jabberwocky’s huge feet.

The Jabberwock burst into sight, its flame like eyes gleaming wickedly in the moonlight. Its huge snake like body, covered in scales, glowed green and the claws on the end of its feetshone white and looked incredibly sharp.

I cant do this, James thought. How could I ever think I could? The Jabberwock burbled loudly as James raised the vorpal sword high above his head and took a step forward….

James, clutching the head of the Jabberwock, went galumphing back. As he was standing with pride and triumph before the people of village they shouted “calloo, callay oh frabjous day!!!!!!”

“Come to my arms my beamish boy,” his father spoke with pride and joy. James looked out all over the village, at the people (many of who had lost family members to the Jabberwocky)

‘Twas brillig, and the Tulgey wood was silent once more….
