6-The Journal, Thursday, January 27, 1977 THIRD GRADERS COMPOSE OWN TEXTBOOKS When the third graders returned to school after the Christmas holidays, they found that their room had been flooded and all of their books had been ruined by the water. This didn't "dampen" the spirits of these kids; they pitched right in and wrote, illustrated, and bound story books of. their own. Here are a few stories from their books. Kermit, the Frog by Kathryn Ross One day a mother frog was about to have a baby. Her husband named him Fred. Fred was well trained and had very good manners, so his dad bought him a motorcycle. But one day he was speeding. A policeman stopped him and he got a ticket. But that was the last thing he ever did wrong. Then, after that he became President of the frogs, and. the people of the town named him Kermit, the Frog. The Fat Woman and The Thin Man by Cheri Duffle Once upon a time there was a fat woman and a thin man. They lived in a big brown house. One day the thin man brought home a dog and a cat. The fat woman was allergic to them. She yelled at him and then sneezed. They had a problem. So they thought and thought. Finally the thin man had an idea. He took the dog and the cat back and they lived happily ever after. p The Mouse's Hole by Lisa Shingleton Once there was a mouse named Tim. He had a family and their names were Sue, the Mother, Bob, the Baby, Fuzzy, the Baby's Brother, and Wuzzy, Fuzz's brother. One day when it was warm, Fuzzy and Wuzzy went to the woods to gather berries for supper. They went farther, and farther into the woods, but they didn't find any berries. When they went a little farther, they saw a hole. It looked like theirs at home, but they didn't know that the hole was their home. While Fuzzy and Wuzzy were at the hole, Bob, the baby, was in bed thinking of what he might do when he woke up. Finally he thought of something he would do. "I will play with my toys." Meanwhile back at the hole, Fuzzy and Wukzy decided to go in and there were Mamma Mouse, Daddy Mouse, and Baby Mouse. The Bouncing Spot by Todd Kucko Once there was a blue ball. It was always getting into trouble. Once he was bouncing and cracked a window. He said, "Oh, Oh." A man got a gun and almost shot him. Then he went into a restaurant and broke some glasses and plates and bowls and spilled soup all over the place. A policeman chased him. The ball got his gun and shot the policeman in the back. He got on his motorcycle and wrecked it. He had plastic surgery. When he got out of bed he was a bionic watermelon and was faster, stronger, and better than he was before. A Dog Without A Tail by Teresa Lile Once upon a time there was a dog. He had no tail. He was sad because all the other dogs had tails. He asked his mother if he could get a tail. His mother said, "Ask Old Owl." So the dog went to Old Owl. When he got there the owl said, "I don't know, ask Mr. Bear." So he went to Mr. Bear. When the got there Mr. Bear said, "I don't know; ask Rabbit. So he went to Rabbit. When he got there the Rabbit said, "I don't know. Ask the King of the Jungle. So he went to the King of the Jungle. The King of the Jungle said, "I know, go to the wishing well. So he went to the wishing well. He wished for a tail, and he got his tail. He lived happily ever after. The Little Star by John Vogt Once upon a time there was a little Star. He was called a comet. The other stars called him names until one day he vanished to Mars. And nobody ever called him names again. And he lived happily ever after. My Friend The Cat by Jamie Cundiff Once upon a time I went to my great, great grand- father's. He had some baby kittens. I took the cutest one home. I named him Elvis because he sang all .the time. One day we got a new puppy. He was a cute puppy. He started chasing and hurting Elvis and made him run away. I whipped the puppy because it was his fault that Elvis left me. Another cat came and she had kittens. Now I will have cats all the time.
