The Bucket Men Meeting in The White House

The Bucket men meeting in the White House

One very sunny afternoon, a little boy walked with his mother in the park after school. Suddenly he shouted “Wow! A Bucket Man! Cool! I like it. He looks so cute. I want to play with him.” But his mother held him tight and wanted him go back quickly.  As the boy did not want to go home, he started to cry. The leader of the Bucket Men woke up and thought “the little boy loves me and want to play with me”. He felt warm and loved inside. On the way home he decided to open a Bucket Men factory to make toys for children.

A Bucket Men meeting has been held in The White House. The leader of Bucket Men announced that in the near future he will open a factory to make bucket men toys for children. He wants every child to have a Bucket Men toy for Christmas. All of the Bucket men cheer up. They all support this decision very much. When they imagine the big smiles on children’s faces they all feel very happy.


We visited the Royal Academy last Saturday night

After the bucket men arrived on Earth, they decided to go to London. Although London is a big city, they are not afraid of anything. They feel brave because of putting a bucket over their head. They cannot see danger and people cannot see their emotions. They feel safe to hide in the bucket.

Going to London is everything they want. They understand that best way to get in to London is go to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

After they arrived in London, they waited politely in the Royal Academy.  There were many people waiting to be chosen by the jury, who will decide who would be exhibited.  People talked to them and asked them questions.  ‘Who are you?’.  ‘Why do you wear a bucket over your head?’.  ‘Take the buckets off,  we want to see your faces!’.  The Bucket Men paid them no attention.  When the Bucket Men were called in to meet the jury, the jury said to them ‘Hey!  You ‘no face’ men!  What the hell are you doing here?  We do not like you, you look so vulgar.  Get ot of here, this is no place for you’.  However, the Bucket Men showed no feelings to the jury because of the bucket that covered their faces.  As they stood there they looked so brave.  But nobody knew of the hurt they felt when they got rejected.  Then they thought to themselves never mind.  There must be otherways to be seen in London.

They thought, there must be other people who will like them and accept them. So they want to try the different way to get to be seen in London.  So they want to try a different way to get to be seen in London.  They want to be famous, even for only one day.  After a difficult struggle, lasting 3 months, the Bucket Men finally arrived safely in Brick Lane, E1, London.  ‘Bravo!  We welcome you to London!’,  shouted the people, particularly the children.

London is not easy to live in. People are stuck-up and they think you are not good enough to live here.  Also, everything is very expensive so no-one can ever afford to buy anything.  However, to be in London is everything the Bucket Men have ever wanted and they never gave up trying even after many rejections.  Oh how we envy your courage, and how we respect your determination!

We love you, the Bucket Men.
