  1. 1. crazy Written by Susan Rae & Room 22, Green Bay School Illustrated by Shaylee Edwards, Micheal Clark & Room 22
  2. 2. Ellie, Ah Liang and Moana were excited about the Crazy Hat Day they were having at their school on hdonday. Ellie found a big floppy straw hat with dried flowers and ribbons on it. It was so big it flopped over her eyes.
  3. 3. Moana found a very, very tall hat with red and white stripes, like the Cat and the Hat. It was so big it kept toppling off her head.
  4. 4. Ah Liang made his own hat out of a cardboard box. He painted it bright blue and covered it with stickers and buttons. Unfortunately, he made it so big it fell down and covered his whole face.
  5. 5. Ellie suggested, “Let’s ride our bikes to school with our crazy hats on”. “What a great idea! ” agreed Ah Liang and Moana. “Maybe we should have a practice run with our hats on, ” said Moana. So they went to the local park with their crazy hats and their bikes, as excited as exploding fireworks.
  6. 6. Ellie went first. As she peddled off, her hat flopped down over her eyes. She couldn’t see where she was going and she crashed into a blackberry bush. “OUCH! ” cried Ellie.
  7. 7. Moana went next. Her hat toppled off her head. She went to grab it, lost her balance and landed on her bottom in the mud. “AARGH! ” cried Moana.
  8. 8. Ah Liang took off on his bike and his hat fell down over his whole face and he crashed into a ditch. “YIKES! ” cried Ah Liang.
  9. 9. “That didn’t work very well at all, ” said Ah Liang. “Do you know what was wrong? ” Ellie asked. “I do, ” said Moana. “You’re not supposed to ride a bike without a helmet and you can’t ride a bike if you can’t see where you’re going or you can’t see if there is any traffic before you cross the road”. “Maybe, ” said Ah Liang, “we could ride our scooters instead. ” “Great idea! ” said Moana. ‘; So off they went to fetch their scooters, as fast as pouring paint. ' l
  10. 10. This time they all started off together. Ellie’s hat flopped down over her eyes and she couldn’t see where she was going. Moana’s hat toppled off her head and as she grabbed it she lost her balance. Ah Liang’s hat fell down over his whole face and he couldn’t see where he was going. They all crashed into each other, like battling dinosaurs. “OOF! ” they all cried.
  11. 11. “Well that didn’t work very well at all, ” said Ellie. “Do you know what was wrong? ” Moana asked. Ah Liang replied, “Yes, with our hats falling over our eyes and off our heads we can’t see where we are going”. Moana added. “We also can’t see the traffic and if it’s safe to cross the road and I think you should wear a helmet, even on a scooter”. “Maybe we should ride our skate boards and then our hands will be free to hold our hats, ” Ellie suggested. So off they went to fetch their skate boards, as happy as children at Christmas. ;a«.
  12. 12. BUT! They did need their hands to balance. Ellie’s hat flopped over her eyes and she couldn’t see where she was going. Moana’s hat toppled off her head and she lost her balance trying to grab it. Ah Liang’s hat fell down over his whole face and he couldn’t see where he was going. They all fell off their skate A’ M boards and landed on their bottoms as hard as meteors bashing into buildings. & {I “OOF! ” they all cried. Lu"
  13. 13. “Well that didn’t work out very well at all, ” said Moana. “Do you know what was wrong? ” Ah Liang asked. “Yes, ” Ellie said. “We still couldn’t see where we were going and we still would not be able to see if there was any traffic before we crossed the road”. Ah Liang added, “And I think we should still wear our helmets, even on our skate boards”. What a dilemma!
  14. 14. The three children decided to ask their parents what they should do. “You’re right, you should wear a helmet on a bike, on a scooter and on a skate board, ” their parents agreed. “Why don’t you walk to school? ” their parents suggested. “You don’t need a helmet, you can hold your hats on your head so you can see where your going, you will also be able to see if there is any traffic before you cross the road, and it’s really good exercise”.
  15. 15. So on Crazy Hat Day, Ellie, Moana and Ah Liang walked to school with their crazy hats on. They were able to hold their hats with one hand and see where they were going and cross the road safely. Another thing: they were able to see all the people waving and grinning, like smiley face balloons, at their wonderful crazy hats!
