Ackbar The Viking
We’ve been working with the young members of Monkey Puzzle Glasgow Central to create some wonderfully exciting and creative stories. This following short story was written as a collaboration between three storytellers.
Ackbar the Viking
By Nella, Darren & Henry
A Viking called Akbar, who had six fingers on each hand, came to Monkey Puzzle and stole everything. And took the staff hostage.
The children will help the staff by going to Sweden and by throwing balls at Akbar and kicking him. Then take the staff back.
The children secretly jump on a boat to Sweden and ask the villagers if they know where Akbar is.
They say “Who is Ackbar, you’re on the wrong island.”
The children have to swim to Greenland. They make it to the island. They find a prophet who says “The only way to make it there is to take the path of doom and encounter giant squids.
They have to swim all the way down to the bottom of the ocean, and are rescued by a porpoise.
They swim all the way to Iceland and there they meet a grizzly bear.
Then the Saxons come to help them with fighting skills never seen before.
They didn’t know that Akbar’s army was on the island. The fighting has distracted Akbar, and the children ran to his hide out, which is under the ground, where the staff were being forced to mine gold.
They have a plan, to paint everyone yellow, and pull the staff out. Because they look like gold.
All the Saxons are waiting outside where Akbar is captured.
They put him on a stick and take him to the volcano where he melted like a marshmallow.
And that was the end of Akbar!
