Superman and a Toy Train

August 30, 2013

The toy train moves down the building to the road so that Superman could help all the people he meets. They see a man shouting for help.

By Mansa, Class V

Superman : Hello, Toy train. I am Superman. What’s your name?

Toy train : Hello! My name is Chug-a-Lug.

Superman : I wish I could move out of the toy room. There is so much sadness in the world around. I want to help people.

Toy train : I will help you. I have special powers which I can use for 3 hours. Tonight, when everyone is asleep, we will go out from here.

Superman : But how will I go out ?

Toy train : You sit inside me and I will take you out.

That night

Toy train : Come Superman, sit inside me. We have to go.

Superman : I am coming.

After Superman sits inside the toy train:

Toy train : Are you ready?

Superman : Yes.

The toy train moves down the building to the road so that Superman could help all the people he meets. They see a man shouting for help.

Superman : What can we do?

Toy train : Wait. I will go and help him.

Superman : I think he is chasing a thief.

Chug-a-Lug stops in front of the thief. The thief does not expect this and falls down. The gentleman takes his wallet and walks away happily.

Then they enter a slum area where they see people sleeping on the footpath.

Superman : There. A child is crying.

Toy train : But her mother doesn’t hear her.

Superman : Come, let’s make her happy.

Chug-a-Lug goes round and round the child and the child starts smiling.

Superman : Okay, you have made the girl happy. How about others around here?

Toy train : With my special powers. I can make money. But in future I cannot use my powers except for moving.

Chug-a-Lug makes a lot of money and distributes it amongst the poor.
Everyone becomes happy.

Superman and Toy train return to their toy room, feeling satisfied. Next day, the news of a slum area becoming neat and posh over-night, spreads everywhere. The Superman and the Chug-a-Lug smile at each other.
