Chapter one

The Riddlers Tale

Welcome one and welcome all
To my broad and brightest hall
A hall with neither roof nor floor
A hall without walls nor doors
A hall where all seasons meet
A hall where grass grows beneath your feet
A hall where daily weather unfolds
A hall where the nights are sharp and cold
A hall where the sky tops the ceiling
A hall with edges marked by railings

This is where I come to play
This is where the innocent stray
This is where I set the test
And I am the Wind and I come from the west.
But before we begin and make our introductions
I think it best you follow these instructions

Make a camera with your hands
And turn it up towards the sky
Find an animal in the clouds
It might be worm, walrus, fish or fly
And if the clouds have run away
Then frame tree bark or a crack in a wall
And spot your creatures shape today

Now in a moment of quiet reflection
Consider your creature with deep inspection
And imagine it sitting upon your palm
Quite content and very calm
Purring if pur it can
And happy to either sit or stand

(When all have an animal then we will progress)
Chapter two

The Wind is fickle the Wind is shrill
The Wind blows warm and the Wind blows chill
And on his path around the world
He stings the cheeks of all boys and girls
And he's stolen six innocent folk
Whose shapes were spotted in his cloak
These kidnapped creatures are now in cages
It's up to you to rescue in stages
He's snatched them from the world around
And sets you six riddles to confound

With a click and a flick of his glassy fist
Bolts of ice skewer the earth
Setting six cages strong
And trapping his prisoners inside the turf

Now cross quickly to your first container
Will the riddle be a no brainer?
But if this riddle be too complex
Then these prisoners will be lost to the test
And set to wander over icy plains
Where cockerels spin on weather veins
And the Wild West Wind chases about
And he whips up storms and delivers drought

So thinking caps on and smarts required
For the Wild West Wind wants you fired
And if you can't solve the riddles below
Then perhaps it's the cages that you'll go
And there you'll be trapped for a year and a day
Until that is the next come to play
And run the riddles set in this test
And try and save prisoners from the Wild West
Walk around the edge of the grass field in a clockwise direction.

Danny the Dragon

Inside the cage sits Danny the dragon, all out of hot puff. He has tried and tried to melt the bars with his hot breath, but the Wild West Wind is too cold and freezes them again before he can escape.

Then he sees you and hope is in his eyes again.

‘Hello, let me read the riddle' he says, ‘I've been trying to work it out but just don't know the answer' says dragon, ‘perhaps you can help me?'

And Dragon reads the riddle.

Where do florists sleep at night?

‘Oh that's so confusing, I have no idea' says Danny.

If you know the answer then remember it as you will need it at the end, where you'll get a chance to release your friends.

Cut me up and I'll make you cry
Fresh juices bringing tears to your eyes
Golden or red with multiple skins
Often pickled but rarely in tins

‘Oh that's so confusing, I have no idea' says Silus

The end

For every correct answer you give, the ice of their cage melts and the animal is set free.

How many were you able to free?

But the Wind is Wild
And he comes from the west
And he asks one last thing
for the end of his test
What were the beasts you saw in the sky
Was it Worm or Walrus or Fish or Fly?

Speak your animals out loud.

And then Wild Wind is gone again to search for your folk
And snatch the ones you spotted in his cloak.
And gather them here for the next round of his test
To see if the new riddlers are as good as the last.

So what is your animal and what is their name and how do they try to escape from the cage?

When you know these things then you must find or make a riddle.
