So here is the picture for this week:


And the words: “Have now been 24 hours on this ghastly boat if it isn’t a dream”. – Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis


“I have now been 24 hours on this ghastly boat if it isn’t a dream. The boat is sailing to destination unknown and I am a prisoner here”

Becky read the words in the old diary that she had found in the attic. It was so exciting and she wanted to rush downstairs to ask her dad all about this mysterious diary. But she remembered that she wasn’t supposed to go through the stuff in the attic. Both her parents had told her that it was strictly off-limits to all the kids. ” Well, they shouldn’t have said it in such a serious way!” She thought to herself. It had piqued her curiosity and now here she was. The diary was very old and it was hard to read most of the entries spoiled because of water. The name on the front page looked like Jonathan, and that was her grandfather’s name. And she believed that he was a sailor. She tried to find another legible entry.

“I have escaped from my captors and trying to survive on the island. There are no animals here that I could hunt so it’s mostly fruit and fresh spring water. I hope I am rescued to tell my story”

There was a knock on the door and her father walked in just as she was trying to conceal the diary. He looked amused. “I knew you wouldn’t be able to resist the lure” I’ll tell you the story of how he was rescued.


Word count; 250
