The A to Z so far rolled into one big Fairy Tale, plus a peek at the Letter S
The Slightly eccentric A to Z blogging adventure of unknown and rather unpopular Modern fairy tales
Once upon a time a long long time ago lived an aristocratic albino king and architect called King Alfonso; King Alfonso designed and built a huge gilded enclosure for three biggish brown bears who had eaten Bob the boy, the kings jester. The Crimson King had tried to assist and cheer up King Alfonso by sending a cuddy cat to him; the two kings had become friends when the Crimson King had passed by on his quest to find his prized Cream canary.
However the post office had accidently sent the cuddly Cat to the Duke of
Denmark, and Doris the Dragon had then mistakenly thought the
Fluffy Cuddly Cat was Candy floss
(easily done). Doris
the Dragon only realized her
error when an Egret called Edward passed by and shouted “Have you
seen a fluffy Cuddly Cat it has
nicked my dinner a rather nice looking Electric
Eel”. In the end Edward the Egret decided it was easier just to go to Franks Fish Bar in Falkirk which had been recommended to
him by Florence the florescent
fire Faerie from Fife who
happen to be passing at the time along with some Ghosts
Goats and GannetS and a
rather Grumpy granny who had
warned the Egret about a flock of Guillemots although the Guillemots had in fact been frightened
off by three angry Harpies who
were complaining very loudly about being set on fire by Hungarians.
Meanwhile Igor the Pet shop owner was reading a letter from a king asking for advice about feeding bears who seemed a bit fussy about the temperature of their porridge, he was also half watching the rather foolish Jack the Juggler being stupid on the hill; it will all end in tears thought Igor as he patted Ivan the immortal Icelandic Alligator on the head. Then sure enough Jack slipped, although Igor did notice it was on one of the jellyfish that had escaped the day previous that caused Jacks fall. Then Ken the Knight asked Igor if he had any kingfishers for sale but Igor told Ken the Knight that he was banned from the pet shop as he had heard that Ken the Knight had fried all the last batch of Kingfishers in a crunchy batter. But ken said he was going to the wedding of Lucinda the little leprechaun from
and Captain Luke and needed a
wedding present. He said even a Mouse
and a Mole would be alright or as
a final resort a few newtS but Igor said “No” and told him to go and
ask someone else for ideas.
So Ken the knight went and sat looking at the Ocean next to an Ocelot and an Osprey who said that everyone loves Pork Pies and the best Pork Pies in the world were made just up the road in Pontefract by the Pie piper and Princess Peter. They did warn him that they sell out very Quickly so he needed to be QUICK QUICK QUICK to get any, so QUICK that even the Quick Queen would struggle to catch him.
But as he was running Quickly to Pontefract he saw a very Round Rabbit and thought that’s a very ROUND RABBIT that will make the ideal wedding present, but as he contemplated how to catch it he was eaten by a huge Snake that HiSSSSSSSSSSSSed and then Smiled silently before both it and the Round Rabbit vanished off into the sunset.
Leaving nothing but a confused ZOMBIE holding a large sign that said . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
