Ferret on a Party Bus
By Rilyn, Second Grade
It was a rainy day in Murfreesboro so my family went on a vacation to the city of Nashville. They had to drive a party bus because there was not a lot of room in just a car. We were almost to the city. I was so excited that I started to jump around in my cage but I hit my head and fell down. I stayed asleep the rest of the way. Finally, we were at the city. I shouted, Yay! While my owners were renting a room I looked at the party bus with an evil eye and saw that the window was open. I hurried up and opened my cage. I snuck to the party bus and looked for the keys. I found them under the seat and started it up. I saw big buildings and shops everywhere I drove. I passed by a little baby chiwawa. The chiwawa thought that a ferret driving a party bus was crazy. Then I zoomed by a manikin. The manikin had a person behind it. The person was like "What in the world!" A bird on a sign saw me fly by and thought I was awesome. Finally, all of the animals wanted to ride in my party bus.
Dog on a Bike
By Grayson, Second Grade
It was a hot day at the Great Wall of China when a boy hopped off his bike to rest. He left his bike at the end of the wall. The big brown dog was walking along the Great Wall when he noticed the big red bike was laying at the end of the wall. He got on the big red bike and did tricks on the wall. The big orange fast fox saw the big dog and thought he could find a bike, too. The fast dog zoomed past the lazy bear. "That's crazy!" said bear. Then dog rushed past a slow turtle. The slow turtle said, "hello, dog." Finally he got tired and put the bike back at the end of the wall before the fast boy came back for his bike.
Gorilla on a Motorcycle
By Nyia, Second Grade
It was a sunny day at the zoo when a gorilla saw a blue and pink motorcycle propped against her cage. Gorilla thought to herself that it was ok to ride it. So she used the key in her cage that the owner dropped last week to open her cage. She ran out and hopped on the blue and pink motorcycle and rode it to her owner's house. The owner thought that the gorilla was funny and silly. As she came back to the zoo she passed a zebra. Zebra said, "Wow!" Then she zoomed by a lion. Lion said, "You sure are a funny gorilla!" Finally, the gorilla put the fun motorcycle back against her cage before the zoo opened up.
