Look! There's A Huhu Beetle

Once upon a time there was a little huhu beetle. He climbed up a big tall pine tree. Up at the very top of the pine tree the little huhu found a hole in the tree trunk and went inside. It was slippery inside the hole. The little huhu slid down, down, down. He couldn't stop sliding. BANG! CRASH! Suddenly he hit the bottom of the tree trunk. He hurt his nono. The little huhu found his way out at the bottom of the trunk and slid home with his sore nono. The little huhu's mum said "You naughty huhu. You could have died." The little huhu decided never again to go climbing up tall pine trees ever again.


  1. This is such a great story Taneti. I like the way you have used exciting words like bang and crash to help tell your story. Using words like these help to keep the reader interested in the story. Well done Taneti.

  2. What a really cool descriptive story!!! it was good that you made the adjectives really big and bold. I read your story and laughed so much I got told off. I also enjoyed the hurting of his behind.

    Really intelligent and I hope you make more funny stories in the future!!
