For Green Eyes Only Blue 
It was a lovely day at Yugumbir State School rainforest. The sun was shining, the grass was green, there were beautiful flowers everywhere and not a cloud in the sky. There was a blue tongued lizard named Blue and a kookaburra named Alfred. One day Blue was taking a nap after lunch. But he couldn't sleep because Alfred was singing so loudly that you could hear him from the other side of the rainforest.

Blue tried so hard to ignore Alfred's singing. He even tried putting leaves in his ears, but it was no use. Alfred just kept on singing louder and louder. Blue got so angry because he couldn't go to sleep he started to wack his tail back and forth faster and faster. He was so angry his tail flew right off!

Well you would think that that would be enough to silence Alfred forever. It didn't though he laughed and laughed at the sight of Blue's tail wiggling away in the leaves and if you go down to the Yugumbir State School rainforest you'll probably hear Alfred still laughing away.
