My Schedule

I want to go to the beach on Friday.  I want to go to Niagara Falls on Monday.  I want to go to Egypt on Thursday.  I want to go to the place that they call China on Wednesday.  And I want to go to Paris on two days after my birthday when I turn six.  And I also want to go to the aquarium on Sunday to see a whale if they have any, and a couple of dolphins.

Two eggs, please. by Sarah Weeks

 Two eggs, please. by Sarah Weeks

There’s a fox, a rhinoceros – who we could actually call a “rhino,” there is a mouse with the alligator and the snake.  And there would also be two dog police officers and one pelican.  And I would call the baby gorilla a CUTE baby, because the baby is rather a chimp than a gorilla, because it acts like one all the time by crying.  There is also a ram that has curly horns.  And there’s a bear. 

They go to the restaurant and they get the fox to give them two eggs.  The snake gets them raw.  They’re different cooked (the snake’s is not cooked at all).  But they are the same because of the inside – brown and white eggs always have the inside yellow.

The real moral of the story:  all eggs are the same, even when they’re raw, when they’re cooked, and when they’re fried.

I like the book.  Because it is very very very very very very funny.


If you could hold your breath for three days, where would you go and what would you do?

I would go to the sea and I would swim.  Only if I know how to swim.

I would stay up high.  Because I don’t want sharks to see me.  I think maybe we could tame a shark if we put more brains in him.

I would see a clownfish.  And I would see little guppies, I hope.

The actual moral of the story is NEVER swim in the ocean because there are sharks in there.

The end.

Family Portrait

One night I decided to take a family portrait.  I got everybody, Tweety on top of the fridge, and even me…

The Once-ler

Inspired by The Lorax:Onceler2

[The Once-ler] is sad because he misses the Lorax.  The girl next to him is me.

He has spikes on his head to knock people or animals over.

He can fly – he has wings, with five feathers each.  One wing has been in the water.  It needs to dry and fluff up to look like the other one.  If you see one quarter of it fluffed up, that means it will take seven more days before it is all dry.  If you see half of it fluffed up, that means it’s almost dry.

He has a tiger pig outfit on with tiger stripes and pig feet.  Tiger pigs are real animals.  They live in the jungle in Africa.  And their heads look like normal pigs’ heads, but one thing is different.  Their ears are round like a bear and on the side of their head, instead of pointy.

He has a bow tie on because he’s going to a wedding.  Actually, he’s getting married to another Once-ler who looks just like him, same head, same wings, except the opposite wing is fluffy.  Her suit is a horse suit, and she has a skirt around her suit.  Because it’s a play-time dress-up wedding when everyone has to wear an animal suit or a Disney suit to the wedding.

The girl he is marrying owned all the trees.  She watched him chop down all the trees, and she didn’t mind at all.  She only planted those trees so that people could make things out of them.  And now she’s gonna plant more trees, so that he can chop down more trees so that more people can have Thneeds.

I’m all done now.

Mrs. Pig

Mrs. Pig

Written and illustrated by Carl Johnson

Once upon a time, there was Mrs. Pig.

And she also acted like a bunny, just like Mr. Pig.

And she was very normal, too.  Extraordinarily normal.

And she ate moss for the first time of her life.  And she kind of threw up, but she did not really get sick.

And then she hopped like a bunny, and then she fell.  And she got hurt, and then she had to go to the hospital.

And then she went back home. 

And also, she ate corn, and it was very good.  Then she realized she was a pig.

The End.

Mr. Pig

Once upon a time, there lived Mr. Pig.  And he really was normal.

But he did do BUNNY things.  And he fell when he hopped.  And then he ate some moss to act like a bunny.  But he threw up.

And then when he ate corn, he knew that he was a PIG.

Fashion During the Great Depression

I like clothes from the 20s, like this:

But clothes from the 1930s are much better.

Aren’t they pretty?

I like the white gown with the green bow. And the silver gown.

The thing that I like about this shoe is that it has rainbow colors on it.  Also it has a birdie on the side – on the buckle.

I don’t even believe this is a man’s coat.

I like jewelry.
Fashion jewelry first appeared in the 1930s as a less expensive, disposable accessory meant to be worn with a certain outfit. Also known as "costume jewelry" Fashion Jewelry is made of less valuable materials including base metals, glass, synthetic stones and plastic.

My Favorite Movies…

imageare mouse movies.  And I like to watch movies about rats and about kitty cats and about everything – all the things that God even created.

My very favorite movie is about the mouse on the motorcycle.  It’s fun.

I’ll have a pet mouse someday.  I’m gonna put it in a cage so Flamey doesn’t get to it, and whenever I’m gonna play with it, I’ll make sure Flamey is out of sight, just like we do with Tweety.

I’ll feed it cheese.  I’m gonna buy lots of cheese, so every lunch and dinner and breakfast time, I’m gonna feed my mouse all my cheese.

I’m gonna name my mouse – it’s gonna be a girl mouse – and I’m gonna name her Kate.
