'Enoki' is the type of mushroom that you can see in the picture above. It is the Japanese name for it, as it's highly popular in Japan and therefore considered to be very special.
Warmed by the rays of the early evening sunshine, the Enoki Mushroom settled down against the trunk of a silver birch tree to read a story from his ancient book of ‘Enoki Tales.’ Two excited baby mushrooms perched themselves on a tiny tree root, eagerly wondering what thrilling adventure would be in store for them today. They had waited patiently all day for story time, and stories from this special book were their most favourite of all.
Perhaps the book contains tales of adventures to mysterious lands, with mushroom castles and magical mushroom kings. Or maybe there are stories about mushroom pirates who roam the seas on board their mushroom ships in search of treasure. There might even be stories about mushrooms who live in, and look after, their woodland home, protecting the tree fairies from the army of nasty, evil wood pixies.
If you were to write a bedtime story for these two baby mushrooms, I wonder what you would include? Well, your BIG WRITE task today, is to do just that. Write a story that might belong in the book, 'Enoki Tales.'
