One day Matilda was on her computer reading the news. There was one story called 'The man from Poland' which made her interested. It was about a best-selling author called Allan Elm, Apparently, Allan Elm sat down to write the first sentence of his novel called 'Winter Time'. It was going to be a brilliant piece of literature. Unfortunately, he got a knock on the door by the man from Poland. And when he sat back down he had forgotten completely what he was writing about. So the book was never written. "Wow!" said Matilda, "He has a very bad memory" When she was having dinner she told her parents who said" You should have been doing your homework". Matilda was sent back to her room to do her homework. But her parents kept asking her to do things so after a while when they asked her again she had something in mind. "Matilda dear, go and turn on the heating" said Matilda's mum. "Sorry mum can't stop remember the man from Poland.” replied Matilda. She did this all the way till she finished her homework. She smiled for she had a trick up her sleeve to get out of ways for doing housework. The following Monday, Matilda got her homework back. She was horrified to see that she had got an A. She skimmed her homework even more horrified to find that all she had written was four words over and over again. The man from Poland!
