    OJ course, the teacher didn't betieve Wittioms stories, but theother chitdren in the closs loved them. 'You might win o writingcompetition one dog!' hi.s best Jriend said. 'You might write o storgbooh one doy. You might be Jamous!' the others soid.

    One morning, Wiltiam loy in bed thinking obout visiting otherplonets. When he turned on his mobile phone ond sow the time, hethought, 'Oh nol I'm going to be lote ogoin!'

    He jumped out oJ bed and storted getting dressed. Then heremembered something importont. He hod to toke o dictionorg, opair oJ sclssors, some glue ond o botl oJ wool to school. He needed

    'Wow!' thought Wittiqm. 'I've got a reotlg big problem now. Withouto mop, it might take much more time to get to schoo[!'

    Then the spoce monster sow Wi.ttiant'sgtue o.nd batt oJ woot. It piched themup but the gtue Jett through its Jingersand dropped on the Jtoor. The topcome olJ ond the glue come out. Itwent o[[ over the spoce monster's Jeet.'Do gou drinh this or wosh in it?' thespace monster ashed.

  • The monster jumped Lnto the gtue ond tried to jump out agoin buti.t coutdn't. It threw the bo[[ oJ wool in the oir, and when it stortedwaving its qrms round ond round, the wool went round ond roundits arms too. Soon the monster couldn,t move ot o[t.

    'A^&o/o'> my ship!' it shouted. (lt wos Jorgetting its Engtish words.)'l've got o horrible heodache beco.use I,m >^( * gour strqngelanguoge.
