The Monster from the Frozen North by Dan
The polar bears who lived by the Arctic Ocean were worried. There were tales of a hairy creature, much bigger than they were, rampaging across the frozen wastes, chomping seals and fish wherever it went. They were concerned they may run out of food.
One of the Arctic hunters happened by and the bears told him of the tales. He set off to find the hairy creature.
Three days later he came across some great, big footprints in the snow. He crept forward and peered over a snowy hummock. There, sitting in the middle of the snow was the most enormous, most hairy, most horrific creature you could ever wish to meet (not that you would want to...meet him I mean).
The hunter threw a couple of spears at it but the creature just caught them and laughed out loud, showing its horrible yellow teeth.
The hunter retreated to think. Then he heard a snuffling noise at his right elbow. It was one of the arctic wolves who roam about the place from time to time, looking for a bit of company (or perhaps a tasty snack but it had seen the spears and had thought better of it!)
The hunter showed the wolf the horrible hairy creature and explained what he wanted. The wolf climbed to the top of the snowy hummock and jumped up and down a few times, howling loudly. The creature spotted it and lumbered across. The wolf ran swiftly away with the creature following close behind. The hunter meanwhile had sped ahead and had used his spears to cut a big circle in a frozen lake nearby. The wolf skidded across the big circle and turned round to jeer at the creature. The horribly hairy creature stopped right in the middle of the circle and bounced twice in rage. He would have bounced more but the icy circle disappeared into the freezing water with the horrible hairy creature on it.
There are tales of others around the Frozen North, but no-one has ever actually seen them.
