Here are the winners for the Story Contest!

Third Place-  Gigz

The boy who played with fire:

There was once a boy named Fred who liked to play with fire, which made his parents very worried. They bought a book called 'Preventing Fires for Dummies' so that they could read it and stop Fred from setting fire to so many things, but before they got the chance to read it, Fred set it alight.

Fred's parents tried to put him in timeout, but he went crazy and ran into the garden. There, he found a ladybird which was fast asleep dreaming ladybird dreams. He set fire to the ladybird using a magnifying glass and directing the sunlgight.

Fred's parents saw this and became very concerned over their son. They realised they had to teach him a lesson. The next day, they set fire to Fred's favorite storybook.

When Fred saw his favorite book burning, he realised that setting fire to things was not a good thing to do. He learnt his lesson and never played with fire ever again! THE END.

Second Place-  Katharine Elisabeth 

In the land of Ysdalle, a country whose landscape strangely resembles that of Arizona, a mad sorcerer cast a spell which burnt thoughts - that is, if someone thought about anything, both the thinker and any book on the subject they were thinking about would be burnt. There was much tragedy in the land of Ysdalle, which was a land of great imagination. Even the insects were not spared the sorcerer's curse - even the humble ladybug was roasted to a crisp for even momentarily imagining a butterfly. And so the once proud and prosperous land of Ysdalle fell into ruin, the ashes of a fire of learning. The End.

First Place- Cogitated Kuri

There was this evil, heartless king long long time ago. He loved to shatter people's dreams. Once a young, poor boy came to his court for help. The poor thing wanted money from the treasury for higher education. It was his dream. The king was really interested of the boy's dream. So as a joke he sent his men to the boy's place who burnt all his books. When the boy got to his home and saw the mass destruction he turned in to a lunatic.

There was an unfortunate lady bird too who lived in the castle. He had fallen in love with the purple butterfly who used to live outside the castle on a tree. Once, the king heard the ladybird sing to his love and how he dreamt he could be with the purple princess. The crazy king immediately sent a bunch of men who searched for the lady bird and the butterfly. The king set fire to the ladybird and laughed mercilessly. Later he pasted the purple princess to a book and set fire to it in front of the whole country so that the residents of the country would see it as a lesson and avoid dreaming.

Well there you have it! Make sure to check out the blogs of the two winners that have them! (After all, that was their prize :)
