Meet Dulcie - winner of our Roald Dahl cereal box competition
You may have seen our competition last year on the back of our Chosen by you cereal packets asking kids to send in their Roald Dahl-inspired stories and pictures.
We loved seeing all the fantastic entries and we’ve now chosen a winner – eight-year-old Dulcie Welsh.
Her winning story will feature on the back of our Chosen by you cereal packets next year.
Dulcie, who wants to be a writer when she grows up, says Roald Dahl is one of her favourite authors and her favourite book is The Twits “because it’s disgusting!”
Mum Nicola said: “I wish you could have seen her face when she heard she’d won – it was a picture!”
Dulcie’s winning story:
Mr Wonker was hungry. He usually was a happy fella and had twinkling eyes and normally did a funny little dance when he jumped out of bed, but not today.
Suddenly a horrible rumbling sound came from Mr Wonker’s tummy. It sounded like a hurricane. It was so loud, all the windows rattled and people ran inside to take cover from what they thought was a storm.
Mr Wonker went in to his factory but all the lights were turned off. There were shadows which looked like trees but were they trees? Then there was stupendous roar, SURPRISE, shouted the villagers.
The lively man looked round and gasped. Saliva drooled from his mouth as he breathed in all the fantastic smells of what he saw in front of him.
There was a huge pile of pancakes dripping in syrup, gigantic bowls of mixed up fruit, yoghurt, cereal and honey and even mounds of salami and sky scrapers of eggy bread and bacon sizzling in a pan.
The eggs looking like great eye balls stared up at him. Buckets of tea and juice and coffee and hot chocolate all of them swirls of steam drifted about and went up Mr Wonker’s nose.
At that second Mr. Wonker could not stand it anymore, he stripped off and dived into the glorious swimming pool of cereal. Finally Mr Wonker cried, THANK YOU! after a huge mouth full of honey hoops.
