THE CARROT ADVENTURE
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!

One upon a time, there was a farm named Carlson's Land. The farmer plated many kinds of veggies – eggplants, cucumbers and carrots. There was a little carrot named Carlson Carrot who always wanted to be a hero and do something special.

One day, some elves were playing in the carrot field happily. Suddenly, one of the elves fell down and dropped some magic powder on the ground carelessly. At midnight, something happened - Carlson Carrot GOT A REAL BODY with hands and feet. He climbed out from the field and walked to the farm excitedly.

Carlson met his friend Kit Kit the dog when he walked in front of the gate. “Where are you going, Carlson?” Kit Kit asked. “I want to go on an adventure. Do you want to join?” asked Carlson Carrot. “No, I am an important person here. I need to protect the farm,” said Kit Kit. “Good luck!” They said goodbye and Carlson started his adventure.

When Carlson Carrot left the farm, a rabbit named Mrs. More jumped out from the tussock and wanted to eat him. “Please don't eat me!” Carlson Carrot shouted. Luckily, the rabbit didn't eat Carlson Carrot and listened his story. She felt Carlson was brave. They became friends and adventured together.

Carlson Carrot and Mrs. More wanted to cross a river but the wooden bridge was broken. When they were thinking what to do, they saw a crocodile crying under the tree. “Are…Are you alright, Mr. Crocodile?” Mrs. More asked. “My mouth is very painful!” Crocodile said and opened his mouth.

“Oh, there is a drinking straw in your mouth! Let us help you.” said Carlson. “One…Two…Three…Pull!!!” Carlson and Mrs. More helped crocodile take out the straw. “Thank you so much my heroes!” Crocodile decided to help them cross the river and protect them.

After a while… “We will leave the crocodiles area and I will say goodbye with you after this small hill. But you need to be careful because there are many hunters and traps.” said crocodile. Suddenly, they heard a soft voice. “Help me please!”.

They followed the voice and found a wombat who was caught by a trap. “Are you alright, Mrs. Wombat?” Carlson asked. “Please help me escape. I need to look for my son, we've been separated.” Mrs. Wombat said. “Oh, poor Mrs. Wombat. Don't worry, we will save you.” Mrs. More said.

Mrs. Wombat held crocodile's tail and Carlson Carrot put his body into the trap. “Ready? One…Two…Three…Action!” Rabbit jumped on the button of the trap and crocodile pull Mrs. Wombat out. “Thank you for saving me. You're my heroes!” said Mrs. Wombat.

Mrs. More found some herbs for Mrs. Wombat and Carlson Carrot. After resting, they started to look for little wombat. “My home is destroyed by humans because of deforestation. My little wombat was scared and ran away when a big tree fell down beside our home.” Mrs. Wombat said sadly.

They walked through the woods, passing streams and waterfalls. “Where are you, my little wombat?” Mrs. Wombat said. “Listen! Can you hear?” said Mrs. More. They followed the crying sound and found a cave. “Are you here my little wombat?” Mrs. Wombat asked. “Ma…Mama?” Little wombat said and walked out from the cave.

“Oh, I found you, my lovely little wombat!” Mrs. Wombat said happily. “Hooray! We found little wombat!” Carlson and Mrs. More cheered. “Thank you for helping us!” Mrs. Wombat said. “You're welcome Mrs. Wombat. We can do big things even though we are little.” said Carlson Carrot and Mrs. More.
