Noel, Age 11, Belgium

Once upon a time in Tropical Trunkadoodles there was a cucumber named Everett N. Pickle. He wasn’t well liked because he wasn’t a tropical fruit like the others. “You’re just a plain old garden vegetable. Go back to your greenhouse,” they would say.

But Everett wanted to be famous (don’t we all?), and one day a chance came. An old chest washed upon the shore containing three items: a compass, a map to something called The Golden Bananas, and an old doubloon. Written on the chest was a message reading: To the one true cucumber of Tropical Trunkadoodles.

There was a huge commotion, of course. Eventually they remembered Everett. They soon started to get him ready to go on a voyage to get The Golden Bananas. They got him a ship named “The Royal Carrot” and filled it with lots of water, some dirt-beds and some sunlamps (for nighttime and storms) and got him a flying melon-pelican friend named George Flapperfruits III.

They had many marvelous adventures including encounters with strawberry-sharks and milkweed-sea cows. They eventually arrived at Piratantical Parsnips, where the treasure was located. After some tricky clue-hunting, they found the treasure, but it was guarded by a big old evil Durian DRAGON!

An action-packed fight happened with some pineapple punches and some kiwi kicks from Everett (and some stinky breath from the ferocious dragon). But Everett won! Everett and George went bananas over the Golden Bananas!

When they got back to Tropical Trunkadoodles, Everett was named a hero! The treasure was put in the town hall. The day they found the Golden Bananas became a holiday, and everyone lived happily ever after (except for the dragon).
