Wicked Witch of the singing sands

The Wicked Witch of the Singing Sands

There once lived a wicked witch who lived over the shiny singing sands. The singing sands warned the wicked witch of anyone coming. The wicked witch loved to steal children, thats why everyone feared her. The herdsman had three sons which he raised up himself because his wife died. He told his sons about the witch so they were careful but still he was worried. So he built a house in an acacia tree with a smooth trunk they put a rope ladder because that was there only way into the acacia tree. Each day he would tell his sons “ While I’m gone do not let ANYONE up into the house, you will know it’s me when I whistle 3 times”.

The three sons kept to the plan, until one day the wicked witch appeared!! The wicked witch said “Oh boys I will not hurt you just please pull the ladder down, I just want to look at your lovely acacia tree”. The boys didn’t listen to her because they didn’t hear the three whistles. So after a while there father (herdsman) came back and they told the herdsman about the old lady who came. The herdsman said “ I think it may have been the wicked witch of the singing sands”. The herdsman had warned his sons to remember, not to let anyone in the house but him. The wicked witch was behind the bush listening to everything they had just been talking about. The next day,the witch hid near the tree until the herdsman left for the day.

Then she quickly came out of her hiding spot and let out three shrill whistles the boys let the ladder down because they thought it was there father when its not. The witch climbed up the ladder and snatched the boys, which she tucked very hard under her arms. She rode quickly onto her hyena to her hut over the singing sands. The herdsman came back he saw nobody up in the house and the ladder swaying he checked properly but NOBODY was there.

The herdsman ran to the wise man begging him to help him find his boys and said “I think the wicked witch has stolen my sons if you don’t help me i’m sure you will break my heart”. The wise man said “ Listen very carefully there only one way to get your boys back you have to be really brave. You must kill the witch, and the only way to do that is to break her stick it contains all the power. You need this golden drum to walk across the singing sands then she won’t know anyone is coming to her. Disguised himself and off he went.

The herdsman patted the drum with his cloak he got to the witch’s hut and the witch had a big shock and said “Go away, Go away”. So the herdsman said “ Have you got some food I am very hungry”. The wicked witch said NO NOW GO AWAY! But when she saw the golden drum she said “ ooooooooooooo you can come inside I might have some delicious yummy tasty good great food”. So they went inside the hut and the herdsman saw his boys so when the witch of the singing sands wasn’t looking he went and snapped her stick and then the witch turned into dust. He saw his sons and grabbed them tightly. Now they don’t ever need to worry about that wicked witch ever again!!

The End
