The baby zebra’s blanket

In a land far away,there lived a dazzle of zebras.One zebra stood out from the rest her name was Hazel.She was called Hazel because she had the biggest cutest hazel brown eyes.Hazel was only one year old.Yet she was one of the most popular.This was due to her bubbly fun personality.There was only one thing that would make Hazel upset.That one thing was if she lost her yellow blanket it had a picture of a cactus on one side a worn out picture of a umbrella on the other side that she carried everywhere, she was given it when she was born.The blanket was very tatty and smelly but Hazel wouldn’t let her mum put it in the wash.

  1. i love your writing, and would definitely want to meet hazel in real life too. She sounds like a friendly zebra 🙂

  2. Hi Summer
    I love the way you made the zebra the main character of your 100WC. You described Hazel so well it was easy for me to get a picture of her in my mind. That is quite a clever thing to do as an author. Well done.

  3. Hi Summer,

    I really enjoyed your story! I have three children and one of them did carry a blanket around everywhere when he was little and it did get very tatty and smelly. Fortunately, I was allowed to wash it every so often.
    I love your collective noun for zebras, ‘a dazzle’. You describe Hazel so beautiful.
    Well done and thank you!

  4. I really liked the way you invented your own word for a group of zebras. A dazzle much more fun than a herd or cohort. Also using a name with a zed in it worked really well as it help build a connection for your readers between the Zebras and haZel.

  5. I love Hazel, she is such a likeable and warm character. It is great how you have provided so much detail to describe what she looks like as well as her personality. You were very creative in using the challenge words. The tatty, smelly blanket brings back memories for me. Well done.
