… a beautiful castle, like you see in fairy tales. They had a look at the castle and said, 'It's beautiful, just beautiful with sparkles.'
Emma and Ben saw an amazing fairy sitting on a glowing mushroom. The fairy told them there was a nasty-looking creature in her town. They were shocked and worried.
Suddenly, they heard a strange noise. It was the creature! He was nasty and stinky and covered in mud, but he was friendly and his name was Ritchie.
He took Emma and Ben to his house. Ritchie gave the dog a candy cane. The dog was very happy.
Ritchie took Ben and Emma inside his house. It was his birthday! The fairy used magic to give Emma and Ben a present to thank them for finding out what the creature was really like.
It got near teatime and it was time to go home. Ben and Emma said bye to their fairy-tale friends and went back through the magic door with their party presents.
