It is difficult for queens to keep friends.  This is especially true for dragon queens,  who like to eat their friends.

Queenia of the Dragons had never had a friend for more than a day. 

“Thanks for playing with me.   Would you like to stay for. ..dinner?” she would ask.  Or even, “let’s play restaurant.   You can be Lunch and climb on into that hot soup pot.”

Now,  dragons are nocturnal and only like go out at night.   But Queenia found it harder and harder to find friends to play with (and eat) so she had to go out in the daytime to find someone.

There,  in the daytime,  she met Mr. Golden Sun.  He smiled brightly all the time.  Queenia liked that.  He made her feel warm all over.  She liked that too.

So she tried to eat Mr. Golden Sun.  And when she couldn’t,  Queenia realized she’d met her Best Friend Forever.

Warthogs in the Sky

WARTHOGS IN THE SKY

Written by Luke (age 31)

Illustrated by Anabelle (age 7)



 

Winifred Warthog was feeling very alone.

Her family and friends had risen early and wandered over the hill and beyond to the watering hole.  Now the sun was high and the heat made Winifred wilty.

She stayed home beneath a leaning tree and waited.

And waited.

While she waited, Winifred did something she had never done before.  There was nothing happening AROUND her, so she looked UP at the sky.

It was blue and bright like a shimmering watering hole.

And there she saw them — two gray shapes that could almost look like warthogs if you squinted just right.  Winifred watched them.

And watched them.

While she did so, Winifred did not feel so very alone.

THE END

VANILLA SWEETPIE THE DRAGON

There was a crescent moon with the dragon.

In the morning, there was a sun and stars came up.  And there was a boat.

The dragon blowed fire at all the things in the picture…the sun, the stars, even the crescent moon and even herself.  She even blowed fire on her fire!

The Jug Of Milk

THE JUG OF MILK

by Anabelle (age 7)



Once there was a jug of milk.  All the other milk friends were gone.

There were only two bottles of juice in the refrigerator.  All the other milk friends were taken by people.

The milk was the worst price.  His sticker said “7 pennies.”

The two bottles of juice were always laughing at him.  But then a person came along and really needed milk.  He saw the milk marked for “7 pennies.”  He bought it.

And the milk lived happily ever after… for one day.

THE END

Now the milk knows humans don’t save milk.

The Elephant And The Crab

by Anabelle (age 7)


Once there was an elephant.  He was going down to the river to drink some water.  And just when he was about to drink some water, he saw a crab.

He was red and had very sharp claws.

The elephant said “Who are you?”

The crab said “I am a crab” and pinched the elephant’s trunk.

THE END

Now the elephant knows, don’t talk to crabs.

FROG TEACHES BEAR TO SWIM

by Anabelle, Isley, Kelly, and Luke



Once there was a frog and she went hopping along the lily pads.

Bear was there in his tight underwear.  His “swimsuit” was two sizes too small.  He hopped along, too, then SLIPPED and SPLASHED into the water!  He lay on his back.  He didn’t move.

He was stuck.

“Do you know how to swim?” asked the frog.

“No” admitted the bear.

Frog asked if he would like a lesson, but Bear became grumpy.

“How could you teach me?” growled Bear.  “You are just a little frog.”

So Frog swam to the shore and made ice cream.  She made Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream, which happened to be Bear’s favorite.

Frog left the ice cream and asked the bear again.  Bear was hungry.

“Okay” Bear grumbled.

So Frog taught Bear how to swim.  She explained swimming step-by-step.  She swam around and around until Bear tried and eventually learned.

Then the two enjoyed the ice cream together.

“Do you know how to make ice cream?” Frog asked.

“No” Bear admitted.  “Would you teach me?”
