Not a Cloud In Sight

 walis was a a worm of great charm and charater he had a red and yelow umberela and one a yellow sock and alage purple shoe with a golen buckle and wore a bowler hat with a feather in the band


when it rained it poured


and wallisis home wich incidetaly was in the soil had to be vacated each time it did so


he liked the rain he say ohh looks like rain again nice day for the laundry cups and saucers bowls and spoons

he said the sky was like a big dishwasher and made his life so joyus


then one day he noticed that it hadnt raind for ages and stared to worry about his washing up

he cimlbed to the top of a mole hill tipeetoed and cride aloud ..not a cloud in sight.,

in doing so he woke up malcome mole who was happily hibernating and in a deep deep sleep

thankyou its one of my faves too

A beautiful story... so musical. Your characters are fantastic. I really like your endings too, they're always so clever, with just a little twist - or sometimes a big one. You're really quite a writer.
