The Scary Rock Monster: an excerpt from Lisa Noble’s Charman Chronicles Book 2 Letters from Home


On a Mountain was a volcano. When it blew up, all the scary monsters on every corner of the world heard a BARA-BOOM-BOOM-Bang! Lava and ash and boulders and rocks shot out of the volcano. The Boulders landed with BUMP-A-WUMP-BUMP and the ground shook like an earthquake. But the scary Monsters said with a scary growl: “We’re not afraid of BARA-BOOM-BOOM-BANG or WUMP-A-BUMP-BUMP, we’re not afraid of anything!

But as the Earth Spun around for a billion years, one of the rocks that shot out of the volcano tumbled all over the world: China, Africa, India, all over! Yes on the bottom of the ocean across ice ages of glaciers, it even got shot out of another volcano! This rock had seen and done so many things, gone so many places, that, grumbling and tumbling for a billion years that  it wasn’t afraid of anything and the rock was fierce, ever so very fierce!
