Harry Potter 

I would love to be a part of the Harry Potter world, because playing Quidditch seems very exciting and I really want to try it. What’s more, I would get to explore Hogwarts castle because it is so grand and mysterious. I would be able to meet Draco Malfoy and get his autograph. In addition, I would learn different kinds of magic because some of the spells would be very useful in my daily life.

More magic

Harry Potter is a famous series of novels written by British author J.K. Rowling. Its fictional universe is quite special, because people can use magic in it. It cannot be found in our real world. Imagine using magic to do your daily activities – for example, sweeping the floor with a broom that controls itself. I think our lives would be so much better!

Sherlock Holmes

It’s got to be Sherlock Holmes’ world. I admire him very much. He always notices the little  clues that no one else does, which helps him to solve cases easily. I would like to ask Holmes  and his friend, Dr Watson, if I could learn how to solve cases from them.

Dragon Ball

The world of Dragon Ball would be the best place for me. If I met Goku, I would definitely ask him to teach me the Kamehameha power move so that I could fight the school bullies.

I Say: If I could create a new Disney princess ...


The world of the Shadowhunters, where I’d be one of the Nephilim, who come from angels. I’d use a weapon (preferably a staff) and battle – along with other warriors – against demons, vampires, werewolves, and faeries. The Shadow World is such a complex place that only boring people would choose to live outside this universe.

It would be wonderful to be a part of Doraemon’s universe. Almost every child’s dream is to meet the robotic cat. I love Doraemon, too, but not because he has a lot of great gadgets; but because he truly cares about his friend, Nobita, who gets poor grades and is bullied a lot. Doraemon helps him to feel better about himself.

Sometimes, Nobita finds Doraemon annoying, but they are always by each other’s side during difficult times. Nobita has many bad habits, but Doraemon never leaves him. I want to have a friend who can accompany me all the time, too. Then, we would play and study together. Having a true friend is the most important thing in the world.

I would like to go to Wonderland, the place in Alice in Wonderland. I love this story very much. I want to explore the place with Alice. It must be amazing!

Cardcaptor Sakura's world 

I wish I could enter my favourite animated world – the one in Cardcaptor Sakura. I like Sakura, the main character,  a lot. Her adventures are cool, and I want to be friends with her and learn more about her.
