Sentence Stacking Maple's Secret of Black Rock.
Erin lived near a big fishing town and longed to go out to sea on a boat with her mum. Everyone told her it was too dangerous because of the legend of Black Rock. One day, she sneaked out onto the boat without her mum noticing and it set off with her on board... As soon as the wind blew, the big scary fog grew. (Thk U RH) The fog was scary!

(Thk U SW) The swirling fog thickened until Erin couldn't see anything (Thk U EM). The colossal rock loomed over the boat, they were very scared (Thk U AB). It was a sooty rock as black as metal chains which were locked to the centre of the Earth. (Thk U MP) "We're going to die! Is this the end?" thought Erin helplessly. (Thk U CB) The enormous waves kept crashing against the tiny fishing boat. The boat turned and swirled up and down the huge waves like being on a roller coaster! (Thk U EW) CRASH! SPLASH!

(Thk U CB) The sharp waves were hitting the life threatening rock. (Thk U RH) She uncontrollably crashed about in the sea but the sea took her down. Falling deeper, deeper and deeper.

(Thk U SW) Black rock yawned awake sharply. Erin jumped quickly (Thk U SW) Erin jerked back! His face looked smiley and friendly. She felt calm and safe.

She was amazed by the the beauty of the wonderful brightly coloured fish that swum around her. A party of parrot fish glided pass. This was paradise! (Thk U EW) Erin was so amazed she just kept staring at the troop of dogfish because they were so special to her eyes. Their ruby heads glittered in the moonlight, it was stunningly beautiful. (Thk U EB) Jumping back in amazement, Erin noticed scrapes on the rocks from rusty old anchors, twisted fishing nets and shiny treasure. She caught sight of a clumsy crab clinging to the shells, a magnificent mudskipper munching on juicy mud and simmering seahorse swaying in the sea. An octopus and an eagle ray followed lazily behind. (Thk U SW) Slick as a squid pulsating in the ocean Black Rock’s hand rose out of the water. “Thank you, my friend,” spluttered Erin. She knew the black rock was unforgettable. (Thk U RH) Erin recognised that this was the most incredible moment of her life. (Thk U SW) Erin relaxed while she gazed at the dark, blue, sploshing sea.
