One day, two children from Wales went to a mountain called Snowdon on a very exiting adventure!!! The two children were called Lucy and James.
When they got there, they went to line up to go on a ski lift. They could see the shadowy, dusky forest and the towering mountains far beneath them. They could also see birds soaring below them. Lucy felt a little nervous about being so high up!
All of a sudden, when they were about half way up, there was a terrible screeching noise and the ski-lift came to a sudden halt!!!James grabbed Lucy’s hand and held it as tight as he could. “How long will we be stuck up here?” whimpered Lucy nervously. “I’m sure someone will come soon” said James in a reassuring voice, but nobody did. It was getting colder and colder, and the children couldn’t see anyone else on the ski-lift. They both began to feel really scared.
Suddenly they felt a jolt but they still didn’t move. They looked behind them and there, swinging along the ski lift, was the strangest creature they had ever seen. It was as big as a polar bear with fur as white as snow, but it had the legs and arms of a monkey. Its eyes were lit up like flames of fire and it moved along as quickly as a cheetah. Just before the creature reached the children, it stretched out its long legs an started pushing the back of the chair. Slowly the ski lift started to move.
When they reached the top of the mountain, they told an old welsh lady what had happened. She told them the story of Bobllyeg, a mythical welsh creature, who lived on the mountain and helped those in need. It sounded just like the one who helped James and Lucy.
