The Animal Fairy

The Animal Fairy
by Isabella Fyfe (age 8)

Once there was a fairy named Annabelle. Annabelle was an Animal Fairy. She loved animals. She would do anything to keep them safe. Her job was to look after the animals in the forest and anywhere else she found them and to make sure that they were safe, had a place to live and had food to eat. She also helped tend to sick animals and tried to heal them with special herbs and plants that she would find in the forest.

She did such a good job of taking care of the animals in the forest that, before long, there were too many animals in the forest for her to take care of on her own. She didn’t know what she was going to do.

One day, a little girl named Rose, who lived in a house near the forest, wandered into the forest to play. Rose came across a baby fox with its paws caught between two large rocks. Rose carefully lifted one of the heavy rocks off of the fix, freeing it so it could run back to its den.

Annabelle was watching as Rose saved the fox kit and it gave her an idea. She flew up to Rose and hovered in the air in front of her.

Rose’s eyes grew big. “Oh cool! A fairy!”

Annabelle explained, “My name is Annabelle and I’m an Animal Fairy. I take care of the animals here. Unfortunately, there are too many animals for me to take care of by myself. Do you think you could help me?”

“Sure!” Rose answered. “What do you need me to do?”

“Well, when you see an animal in trouble, you can help it like you just helped that little fix kit. And do you think you could come into the forest sometimes and pick up the rubbish that people leave behind? Sometimes the animals get stuck in packaging or they eat food that people leave behind and it makes them sick.”

Rose promised to help and she kept her word, helping Annabelle whenever she had some free time. Because of her help, Annabelle was able to continue taking care of all of the animals in the forest.
