Welcome to the 117th Inventors Fair, and prepare to be amazed with the wild and wacky inventions across the field. Once complete you can then write your own inventions and put them into the tale too.

Approach the memorial park from Bush Street near Pembroke Dock School.
Chapter one


‘Roll up, Roll up, the inventors fair is here'.

‘Come see the miraculous, the incredible, the fan-tab-u-lous' announced the orator from his tiny wooden podium. He then leans forward and whispers to you ‘I know that fantabulous is not a word, but this is an inventors fair and if you can't invent a few words here and there, then what's the point, ay!' His moustache twitches in excitement which seems to accentuate the shiny baldness of his head.

‘Buy your tickets here' he announces to the crowd gesticulating in a strange flourish of twisting wrists towards the booth and turnstile.

‘Now good people, ladies and gentlemen, have you been acquainted with the astounding Mr Arac, who will be demonstrating his incredible Home Spider Dentistry Kit or what about Dr Faustus and his amazing security device, The Magic Void'. He pauses for effect before he continues ‘It's a new type of security safe, soon to be available throughout the land (patent pending), its super light construction unlike those cumbersome iron boxes in banks. But best of all it is designed to lock away all your most valuable possessions inside a surprising quirk of space; time itself! It's the craziest thing, seeing your precious stuff just vanish into thin air and then be extracted once more. Go see him, he's at stall number 253. But then he mutters to you under his breath ‘I suggest you don't let him Magic Void your pet, last one came back a little squishy and the boys keeper and mum were quite disgruntled.'

Suddenly you have a ticket and are through the barrier, and there before you is stall - upon stall - upon stall, this is the inventors fair. Tents and turrets are pitched everywhere, flags and banners billow as smartly suited visitors amble between the stalls. Noises fizz from displays where plumes of pink and purple smoke waft from curious contraptions to the left, right and just about everywhere.

A voting paper is then thrust into your hand and you notice it has six spaces for nominations, this is what you need to fill in and post before you exit.

You glance back and see the sun glint off the Orators shiny head as he disappears back through the gates. His wrists spin above his glistening head as he funnels and encourages more paying visitors through the turnstiles.

Now to the fair.
Go to the middle of the park.
Chapter two

The Slice and Dicer

As you approach the stall you hear the squeal of a pig as the ancient machine shreds, you can feel the pain and suffer of the pig, yet you can taste the texture of the meats. You smell aroma as the operators work away shovelling coal into the engine keeping the fire lit. You can see a fresh batch of all pork products varying from sausages, burgers and porkchops.

Then the most incredible thing happened I welcome to you the professor behind this the most incredible invention ever made! SNORTT the professor entered "This machine I call the Slice and Dicer this machine has many purposes as I will now demonstrate." You look to the red curtain as it rolls up revealing the machine the operators first trick is presented by Barclay the professors son. BANG!! In 30 second the machine created 100 burgers which where then past down to the hot dog stand to be made in to beef burgers.

However, the machine quickly changes attitude and begins to bob and hop, smoke begins to launch from the top of the machine and oil begins to leak. You then realise things are getting out of hand so you make a quick exit and begin your hunt again.
Go to the bench in the corner near the road, but stay in the park.

There's a fridge but not any old fridge you can see threw it,you can see the machinery which is made out of candy floss for the cogs and spaghetti for the strings to help make this amazing invention. You can hear Mr popper shouting "roll up, roll up and see this mind blowing inventory". People are lining up to have a go when all of a sudden you can smell an awful smell it's the stall next to you it smells like it is owned by a fish monger.

Super Charging Boots

As you approach the stall you may see two large pillars with different colours and shoes. The tent is rounded with a pointy roof, with pillars either side. There are plenty of wooden tables that have boots arranged in lots of colours and sizes. Over to the left of the tent you may see a stall next to mine that has in big bubble writing 'IF ITS GONE REPLACE IT' this stall is owned by miss skittle. By the way my name is miss Shoes I own stall all about shoes.

You will never guess what the most incredible thing happened my first ever customer had come to have a look his name is professor Trumpet. My point is that these are a new invention and nobody has heard of it so nobody has ever brought a pair I am so excited. My assistant Mr Chips my assistant has arrived with all my new gear for my shoes. Listen up you are in luck because today I am going to tell you how to do these incredible things first of all you have to find your balance and before you know it you will be zooming way.

I can just feel something bad is going to happen. Then all of a sudden the professor asked to have a pair I agree and get his shoes ready when I go to get the chargers and I can't find it, then i I remember Mr Chips forgot them. So I quickly say to Mr Chips come on we need to go so we quickly put all the stuff in the van and grabbed all my shoes and we make a run for it.

Go back to the beginning.
Chapter eight


The Orator approaches, bald head glistening in the sun.

‘Place your sheets in the box and we'll see who the Inventor Supremo is in the 117th inventors fair'.

Is there one invention which is the best in your opinion? Have a discussion now and see which you think is the most impressive, when you have decided then please read on.

‘Good good.' Says the orator as you post your sheets, but suddenly there is a huge sound from the middle of the field, you look over and see a jet of blue flame snatch up into the air. A BOOM follows which is so loud you feel it in your chest, and the orators mouth drops open aghast at what is unfolding.

A flash follows with attendants and visitors running pell-mell away from the ‘Mr Bubbles, double bubble super fizz pop' tent. ‘Run for cover' they shout as people dive behind bales of straw just before the BIG explosion.

The next events seem to happen in slow motion as tents flatten across the field and flags bend horizontally away from the epicentre of Mr Bubbles. Then a black wall sweeps across towards you and there is only a moment to duck before it engulfs you. But thankfully it passes in a moment and you stand again to see the orator is covered head to foot in soot! He turns with mouth still open and moustache intact to the single flash of a reporter's camera.

‘Well it would appear that the 117th inventors fair has come to an abrupt end' he says to you with eyebrows raised as high as they will go.

The next day the local paper lands on your hall carpet with this very photograph, the orator is central, treacle black from head to foot and behind him the stately metal dome of Mr Bubbles is spurting with a mountain of foam.

The headline runs with ‘Inventor's Bubble Trouble. Hundreds flee from catastrophic fizzy pop explosion at the 117th inventors fair'.

To the left of the picture you can see yourself looking rather surprised.

What an event!
