The Village ADVENTURE 葉柏言

The Village 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!

Ethan had received a strange letter. It must have been a prank. . . . But . . . it. . . . wasn't!!

When Ethan unpacked his boxes, underwear and rubber duckies, Lionel, his new neighbor, banged on his door.

As Ethan opened the door, Lionel shoved a magic egg to his face. A garbled, “Thank you for the welcome gift!” came from Ethan as he tried to close the door on his strange neighbor.

“This isn't a welcome gift! This thing will save your life!” Lionel ominously cried out as he ran into Ethan's living room, open the curtains and said, “Look!” It was sunset and hundreds of green figures were marching on to his lawn.
“Zombies?!” Ethan gasped.

Lionel dragged Ethan to his own house that was filled with eggs in every room, and shouted, “Start throwing! Only magic eggs can kill them!!”

Two of them covered their lawns with eggs. Then Lionel did some impressive magician moves and said, “Hgbyvghchh! Eggs attack!!”

Suddenly, a cloud of sparkly smoke covered the lawn. When the smoke was gone, the magic eggs enlarged, and were ready for battle!

The zombies were close! They were angrily, eerily chanting, “No EGGZ! No MAGIC!........”

Fortunately, the magic eggs grew hundreds of sticky strands of yok tentacles that wrapped around the zombies. Dead zombies lay all over the lawn. They looked horrible with rotten flesh that smelled terrible. Their skin, a disgusting green-and-vomit-brown.

Ethan and Lionel, exhausted from the battle, left the zombies to be cleared the next day.

In the early morning, Lionel greeted Ethan excitedly, “The dead zombies are gone. They turned to dust at the touch of first light! And, I just found out that zombie colonies have a Boss Zombie that keeps making more zombies each day!!”

Just then villagers barged up to Lionel and shakily said, “We can still hear zombies.” The boys calmed the villagers down and hatched a plan. They gave each villager enough eggs to cover every part of town and planned for Lionel to do magic at dawn.

It was a tough battle. But their plan worked! As the zombies were lured to town, the villagers kept them battling - until sunlight arrived and turned them to dust. Strange zombie echo sounds rang out as they burnt up.

Now, the only problem was the Zombie Boss!

Lionel and Ethan tracked down the zombie lair, deep down beneath the town. There were thousands of zombies! Everyone threw eggs like crazy and soon the eggs went through the pack of zombies in a flash. Sadly, trampled and cracked eggs were everywhere, but their enemies were defeated!

Lionel and Ethan set out to find the Zombie Boss. The Zombie Boss sat on a throne, beside him, two enormous helper zombies. In the boss' hand was a wand with a strange gem at the end of it. As Lionel threw magic eggs at the throne, the Zombie Boss waved his wand, saying “Zzzukinuef” and the eggs shrunk!!

The villagers then charged towards the helper zombies and took them down with a hundred eggs! One of the villagers then threw a tangled zombie at the Zombie Boss. It knocked the wand out of the boss' green-and-vomit-brown hands, and the eggs enlarged and recovered their yok force. The Boss was afraid and ran for his dear life. But the yoks finished him off!

As everyone returned to their homes, they noticed the streets were no longer covered in a green-and-brownish fog, street lamps were shining brighter, echos of zombie sounds no longer haunted the streets.
