Mantle of the Expert
We are Global Rehomers and the Intergalactic Space Agency have sent us a message from another planet. We have to decide whether we want to respond.
We are concerned that these beings look to scary for Earth and we are also unsure whether this planet will be able to feed them appropriately. We have lots of questions…
We know that we have to use technology to communicate safely during this commission, so out of our Mantle story we are to "Be Internet Legends" with the Google programme.
We received a Wildlife Safety Award for our work with pine martens. We rehomed 18 from the Cairngorms in Scotland to The Forest of Dean. This is having a positive impact on the habitat as pine martens are predators of grey squirrels. The number of grey squirrels is decreasing so there is less damage done by them to the bark of the oak, beech and pine trees. It also means that red squirrels are able to live more easily in the area as they are not competing with so many great squirrels for food and they are not catching the deadly disease from the grey squirrels.
We read "The Barnabus Project" by The Fan Brothers and created a cityscape with watercolour paint. We decided to locate our Global Rehomers office there in Scotland. After learning about the highlands and the lowlands, we decided that the city of West Metropolis would be in central Scotland where a lot of the big cities are.
We read "The Journey" by Francesca Sanna. The people on the boat told each other stories of sea monsters so we invented our own.
Look out for our happier stories of fairies and magic spells in the forest, also inspired by The Journey...
