We left Goldstone last week with the promise of an excellent next task and Year 3 certainly did not disappoint! Shall we see what they have been up to??? Guy set them a creepy carnival challenge…
So, as you know, Fulbert Freakfinder is desperate to recruit Stitch Head as the star of his Carnival of Unnatural Wonders. He goes to great lengths to convince Stitch Head he could be a star, including creating a poster, featuring Stitch Head as the main attraction.
I want you to create your own poster for Fulbert Freakfinder’s Carnival of Unnatural Wonders. It can feature Stitch Head and / or Doctor Contortion, Madame Moustache and the Topsy Turvy Twins OR your very own uniquely freakish attraction / character / star of the show, to pull in hordes of punters! Your job is to make the carnival look as exciting as possible, so that Freakfinder gets loads of visitors and doesn’t go out of business…
Good luck! Can’t wait to see your posters.
Speak soon, and, as if I need to say it, Have yourselves a DiNGLE DANGLE…Guy
I’m Emily and I’m very pleased to be writing to you.
I really liked your challenge and I think it was very competitive. I thought about Fulbert and how horrible he was, so I drew him with a duck body. I renamed him Duckbert. Thinking about it makes me laugh.
I have found the story very funny and when we’ve acted it out, I have played the part of the Creature. Mr Lessel’s thought my performance was very funny because of the voice that I used. I was madder than Professor Erasmus.
Hope Chapter 14 is even better.
Emily … Creations of Year 3 … brave souls of Chuggers Nubbin – Roll up, roll up!
Thanks for your incredible posters – I had a whale of a time inspecting them in all their gruesomely grotesque glory. I loved how much variety there was in terms of composition and content – especially the new characters you threw in there. Some of my freakish favourites were:
THE GYMNASTIC KITTENS!MR MOHAWK! (He will mess your trousers until they come off)THE HIDEOUS MR BONE! (He could bite your guts out)THE SPLITTING SKULL! (It will mess you up for life)THE TERRIFYING THREE ARMED CREATURE THAT IS THE SIZE OF A BEAR! And, possibly most nonsensically nightmarish of them all…
(On a side note, Stitch Head began almost-life as an idea called An Arm and a Leg. One of the two main characters, Leg, had a foot for a body! More on that later…)
Sounds to me like the greatest show on Earth! So, “Roll up! Roll up! We’ll make you crack up!” “Come to Brighton for a trouser messing show!” “You’ll never forget your panic!” “Just one penny a peek!”
After all, as Cousin Bob puts it, it’s “Really really really really really really really really really really really really COOL!”…
Hm, seems like all this superb sideshow silliness has given me an appetite – and nothing satisfies my hunger like a tasty bowl of challenge soup…
By now, you’re all so immersed in the world of Castle Grotteskew you might as well be mad professors. Or perhaps you already are.
So, your not-quite-but-nearly final challenge is to create your own powerfully potent potion! Here are some things to consider:
– Is it a monster-making or creation-curing concoction? Is it something Professor Erasmus might create in his lab or would you more likely find it in Stitch Head’s dungeon?– What is the potion’s desired effect?– What exactly is your potion made from? It should have at least five (but no more than five hundred) incredible ingredients.– What’s the name of your potion?
Don’t forget to include a picture of the bottle, complete with label!
Cheers,GuyP.S. Have yourselves a DINGLE DANGLE!
