The Fire Forest
Imagine. Create. Share.
Since 2008, the Kids4Kids My Story Creation annual story writing and illustration competition has provided primary students across Hong Kong with a creative platform that enables the budding writers and artists to imagine, create and share their stories.
This story was written and illustrated by kid(s) who participated in the Kids4Kids annual 'My Story Creation competition'. We hope to celebrate all the kids who used their creativity and imagination to create a story by giving them an opportunity to custom print their story, and be able to share and inspire other kids to create their own story.
Proceeds from the sale of this custom print story will help fund the Literacy Development Programmes at Kids4Kids to provide creative learning opportunities to low resourced communities in Hong Kong. By buying a Kids4Kids custom print story, you are not only applauding the future artists & authors of Hong Kong but you are also making a difference in a child’s life!

Once upon a time, there was a city. A forest was next to the city. Everybody called it “Fire Forest” because there was fire quite often.
One day, the head of the village in the forest, Uncle Turtle, called the animals for a meeting.

The animals discussed about the fire.
“There was more and more fire in the forest. Last month, a fire seriously damaged Horse Mom's home,” reported Uncle Turtle.
“We need to assign some animals to investigate it,” said Monkey.
Monkey and Dr Duck were smart and they were assigned representatives.

The next day, Mr Monkey and Dr Duck went to the forest. They went to the north and the east of the forest. But they didn't find anything. They were tired so they ate some snacks. After a short break, they headed to the south. Of course, there was nothing.

Finally they went to the west of the forest.
Monkey dropped his magnifier so he knelt down. He saw something suspicious– a cigarette butt.
“It is something people like putting in their mouth and spout smoke out!” shouted Dr Duck excitedly.
“I know why there are fires…” shouted Monkey.

They rushed to Uncle Turtle's house and showed him the cigarette butt. Dr Duck told Uncle Turtle how and where they found the cigarette butt. When Dr Duck finished his explanation, Uncle Turtle summoned many other animals and thanked Monkey and Dr Duck.

The next morning, they gathered again. Uncle Turtle suggested, “We have to set up a team to patrol the forest and warn the people not to smoke!”
Later on, Rabbit reported to Uncle Turtle, “I saw two people smoking but I couldn't catch them.”

Uncle Turtle dispatched some animals to stop people smoking. They followed Rabbit to the west of the forest. They saw two people smoking and chatting. The men dropped their cigarette butts on the ground. Monkey and Rabbit immediately jumped out to stop them. The men were afraid.

“Why do you drop the cigarette butts in our forest?” Uncle Turtle asked.
“Because it is convenient,” Jack said.
“Don't drop rubbish on the ground because if the cigarette isn't extinguished, it will cause fire.”
“We know now and we are sorry,” the men said sincerely.

From now on, there was no more fire in the forest and no one would call it “Fire Forest” anymore.

This story tells us we must protect the forests and it is everyone's responsibility.
