Mr Gnome isn’t exactly the politest gnome that has ever lived. In fact, he’s pretty rude. Even when a hedgehog comes along with an apple stuck on his spines, Mr Gnome isn’t interested in helping out - and Mr Gnome does actually quite like apples.
So when Miss Witch politely asks Mr Gnome to stop fishing in her pond, it’s no surprise that he refuses. Unfortunately for Mr Gnome, though, it’s not Miss Witch’s first encounter with such an impolite being, and she has a pretty conclusive method for dealing with rudeness…
Millions of years ago, dinosaurs roamed the Earth: ancient reptiles with horns, sharp teeth and long necks. Around them lived the flying pterosaurs, the marine reptiles and the small furry mammals. Yet a lot of different types of creature shared the same features, whether that was terrifying teeth (T Rex had teeth the size of bananas but Helicoprion - a shark-like creature - had teeth that were like spirals), amazing armour (Ankylosaurus had armoured eyelids) or super sails and spines (the aptly-named Spinosaurus had a spiny sail two metres tall).
My friend Fred does a lot of funny things. He eats dog food, which I think is disgusting. He also howls at the moon. I don’t know why. But even though we are different, Fred is my best friend.
