The Good Apple  by: Kaitlyn

Ok, I know all of you know the story of Snow White, right?  Well here is how it really went…

          Once upon a time, there was a beautiful girl named Snow White.  Her mother was the most wicked mom in the whole entire world!  She wanted to be the queen of all the land.  She even had a magic mirror that talks.  She asked the mirror, “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s most fairest of them all?”

          “Your daughter, Snow White,” answered the mirror.

          “What?  That can’t be! I must be the most fairest of them all to be queen of this land!”

          “Well you are not fit to be the queen, but I can tell you what you can do to be the most fairest of them all, feed Snow White an apple with poison on it.  She will be gone and you will be the queen,” said the mirror.

          “Thank you mirror,” said the wicked mother.  Underground, “Wicked” has what she calls “an evil lair”.  She had a cauldron of the poison for the apple, another for a potion that will turn her into the most ugliest, hideous, oldest, person in the land to trick Snow White into thinking she was just an old lady.  And another cauldron for chicken soup, incase she gets hungry later.  One day, the old lady was standing in front of Snow White’s house, holding an apple.  Snow White was very hungry and asked for the apple.  The old woman gave the apple to Snow White.  She ate it and nothing happened, “Oops, forgot the poison!  Oh well!”  THE END



The True Story of Cinderella by: Regan

          Once upon a time there was an ugly girl named Cinderella who lived with her evil but pretty step-mother and step-sisters.  Cinderella was treated very badly by her step-mother and step-sisters.  Late one night the price called for a dance at his beautiful, white palace in the ballroom.  The ballroom had so many lights and decorations.  Cinderella wanted to go to the dance so bad but her step-mother wouldn’t let her go.  So, Cinderella sat home alone.  Until a fairy showed up and said, “You are the ugliest girl I’ve ever seen.”  So that moment the fairy decided to turn her into a beautiful princess and told her that she has a spell, and it will wear off at 12:00 midnight.  Cinderella was so happy that she really didn’t care what time the spell wore off at.  When Cinderella arrived at the ballroom, the prince noticed her right away because of her beautiful, sparkling blue dress.  Right away he knew that they were made for each other so he asked her to dance.  Cinderella said yes.  They danced and danced until midnight.  All of a sudden, Cinderella heard a clock strike 12 and she remembered what the fairy said.  Cinderella tried to get away, suddenly she lifted in the air and turned back into herself again.  When the prince saw her like that he said, “You are horrible looking.”  Cinderella just looked down at the ground in shame  Then the prince decided to marry one of the pretty step-sisters instead, and they lived happily ever after.  Poor Cinderella had to run away from the evil step-mother and step-sister, because the one step sister moved out.  The mother and sister would make her do more stuff because one of the sisters moved out with the prince so she actually had one more thing to do.  So that’s the true story of Cinderella!  THE END!

          “It’s ok,” said Grandma.

          “I have to go check on Goldylock’s cottage, ok?” said Little Red.  So Little Red went back to Goldylock’s cottage.  The monster was not there.  The monster went to Grandma’s house just to say Hi (ya right).  So, the monster went.  He knocked on the door and sounded like Little Red and said, “It’s me, Little Red.”

          Grandma said, “Come in!”

          “Time to eat you,” said the monster.  “Ew!!! Why do you have purple skin and smell bad?” said the monster.  “I think I have the wrong granny and so he ran out of that smelly place.  Eventually, Grandma got better and everyone lived happily ever after.  The End.
