Before Sunrise


A dark clock face is standing tall, silently as a ghost. The shadow wished there was more to life than hiding away. Slowly and cautiously he crept into the outside world. 


Sad lonely eyes are lit up by the clear shining moon. He has a slim skinny neck like a pencil and body like a stick.On top of his head there is a black tuft that points to the sky.   Alone, walking through the town, his eyes are stunned at what he sees. They are pale white and beaming.  Where is he going?  What is he searching for?




Gingerbread houses gloom out of the distant shadows.  The balconies are small and the doors are oval shape.  The statue warrior sits on the fountain in the centre of the courtyard, with trumpet statues making water come out magically.


A sudden glow of light  streams out of a window. It looks like treasure. He wants to explore further.  He starts creeping to the shop to take a look at what it is.  Once he’s in the shop he is surrounded by stacks and stacks of books. The stacks look like wobbly staircases. He is astonished.  




The bright glowing candle catches his attention. He is overwhelmed.  She turned her head shyly looking away. Her eye lashes fluttered out tiny fairy dust like golden stars.  The candle burns his hand and he walks away.




Suddenly he feels the candle being whooshed out, and he is completely horrified and is in despair. He collapses to the round base of the candles heart. The shadow is filled with fear.  The candle smoke is swirling, tumbling, and dancing and emerging into a shadow. She falls gracefully into a little sleep. The candle sits up and looks confusingly at herself.  The shadow is delighted.

Out of the Shadows


The clock face is shining out of the enveloping shadow.
The white shining angel stands guard over the village as they rest. The houses have got beautiful curly, whirly doors, but in the secret darkness hides a shadow. 





He has bright droopy eyes glowing with the sparkling moon. His big head is long and oval like the shape of an egg. A tuft is curling and pointing up. Don't you dare touch it or you'll get cut. The shadow wondered why he was stuck with the mischevious ones and thought there must be more to life. Bravely he stepped into the night. 




The moon is glittering like the stars glimmering at night.  The tower has chipped bricks and is very dangerous.


A sudden a glow popped out of a cupcake window.  Slowly and carefully the shadow crept to the library. He was astonished when he made it to the light. Tall towers of books stood crooked all around. 







His eyes were caught by the glittering light.  Fluttering sparkles dropped from her sparkling eyes.  He had found what he had been looking for.





Suddenly the warmth in his heart died as the candle flame got whooshed out.  Everything was black.  In despair the shadow collapsed, cuddling the base of the lonely candle.  



Whisps of smoke are moving closer and they emerge as a shadow.   He looks in wonder.  She is alive!

Story Start

The tower is gloomy and old.  It looks spooky as the clock face shimmers like the soft sky.  Glowing roof tiles lit up the night sky with flying stars.

The water is runing down into a glowing
shimming white stuff as it lights up the night sky.  The water go's all fluffy after the night glows on the roof of all shadows.


The mouton's get covered in soft shimmering moon light sky.

Story Start


A clock face is ticking in the shadows. 


The crows are talking in a small town. 


The shiny roof-top is popping out of the dark sky like sparkling snow. 


The gingerbread houses are big and tall with the steep roof and an empty balcony.

The clock face is shining out of the enveloping shadow.










The white shining angel stands guard over the village as they rest.













The houses have got beautiful curly, whirly doors.


Story Start

The village is dark because it is 5 o'clock at night.  

There are no-one to be seen. 

The clock is shining brightly something is happening. The buildings are creaking. The reflection of the moon on the roof is like shooting stars. 

Around the doors there are carved patterns like worms digging holes in the dirt.

Meet the Shadow

The glinting moon lights up his eyes so they look like silver drops.  The sparkling stars beam across the sky as the clouds puff gently.   The moon is painted with swirls of koru.

A tuft pops up like a light saber out of the shadow's head.  His legs are like twigs when they limp along and his arms droop along in the air. He moves in the shadows silently and sadly.

Where is he going?

What is he looking for?

Before sunrise - lonely shadow

His big head is long and oval like the shape of an egg.

His tuft is curling, pointing.  Don't you dare touch it or you'll get cut.

Describe Character

The alien's eyes light up from the shimmering moon as his face is depressed in the dark shadow's emerging from the clouds.

He walks straight instead of all crimpled over and naughty like his small friends.  The flipper like feet make him look like a slinky seal.
