Chapter one

Introduction

‘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 big kids swings.

Xhand

As you approach the stall you see people with phone holograms on their hands. When you reach the pink and white stall, you see professor Ceewee who has grey hair and looks a bit like a mad scientist. "Would you like anything sir?" Asked professor Ceewee you said "No thank you, I don't have any money." A boy came over and he said he's called Mark then the most incredible thing happened...

Mark offered me money for the hologram phone he said it's called a Xhand I said "no it's your money" he still wanted me to have the money because he said "no I insisting didn't want to argue so I just took it. Professor Ceewee said "do you have money now?" "Yes I do" I said when I got one of the xhands a fight broke out so I had to exit that room with the stall, in a couple of seconds.

Chapter four

A little fly which was Super Spliced in a device

As you approach the stall you hear a tiny fly that is whizzing around you although it is so small you can't see it. Then you notice that Mrs Mckeand has a small remote in her hand.
The camera starts when someone sees it and it will take a picture then it will start flying and it will go in a safe place that no one will find it.
If someone sees it they might grab it which is going to be upsetting ,so and if you can't fly it the battery is dead and if that person don't know there's a camera inside it that makes the camera still working but if that person knows someone is watching them and the camera will tell you how long the fly has been flying for and it will tell you how long the camera is on. That means you can locate them if the camera is on because it is showing you where they are going,and if the battery is half way you can take a picture so if the camera does go off you got evidence if the fly goes away.
Go to the early years play equipment.

But, not before long you am teleporting home as your dad sees me with it and he was actually planning to get me one ! You're dads name is Mr Average. He likes to think he's right. Your name is Mrs Emzyma. (I like to think my dads always wrong.)

Realising my watch is flashing you get confused. About 1 hour later Mr Paul Pogba phones me saying 'your teleporter is running out, to charge it you must teleport to 3 places at once!'

Mr Paul Pogba, has very long nails and he has to TUG the dirt out of them! He lives just down the harbour not a far walk.... His house is so big it's like a maze this is where your teleporter comes in handy. All you can smell as you approach the door is lime off the candle MR. Keen made, he also made my watch and he didn't just make it he had to do things you wouldn't dream of doing !

After I opened the door you wiped my watch off and as I wiped it a pile of dust fell swiftly on to the floor making me sneeze! Mr lil de rascale had the same problem!

Just as you turn to leave you spotted someone trying to take my watch off! You teleport straight back to my house. Just then you heard your dad come through the door with a BANG!!!! He was carrying all of the shopping in from the stall he wasn't very happy!

You had to do chores for 1 WHOLE month......

Chapter eight

Further Thoughts

What inventions would you have liked to have seen at the fair?

Are they big or small, can they be held in your hand, or carried on your back?

Is it edible, totally credible or just downright daft!

Have a talk amongst yourselves whilst the other groups catch up.
Chapter nine

Exit

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!
