The Real Snow White Story
By Elbert and Zachary

Once upon a time when I still lived in another place, the queen decided that she would give birth to a baby daughter. When the daughter was born, the queen named her Snow White. Then she died, so I became queen instead. Snow White helped me clean my castle and became one of my faithful servants for 9 years. then I let her go when she was old enough. I ordered one of my huntsman to show her the way to my secret cottage in the forest, but unfortunately, he disobeyed me. He stopped in the middle saying that I was evil and that I wanted to kill her. Then Snow White herself walked into the cottage. There she met the 7 dwarfs. Dopey, Sneezy, Happy, Grumpy, Doc, Bashful, and Sleepy. They helped her clean the house and make supper every day. I was proud. I thought I would give her a treat. A basket of apples. I rode across the river in a suit because I thought it would be funny. I went up to her front porch, gave her an apple, and she fainted! I went home crying. But one day a prince kissed her and she came alive again! Everyone rejoiced. The prince took her to a castle in ten clouds, but unfortunately, I didn't get to go.

The True Story of Captain Hook
By Selina and Calista

Captain Hook was digging holes in the ground for gold. But then a flash came and Peter Pan appeared. "Hello Hook," said Peter. "Hello Peter," said Captain Hook. "Why are there so many holes here," asked Peter Pan. "I just want one piece of gold," said Captain Hook sadly.

Then they both decided for what tournament they could play because Captain Hook knew that Peter Pan had all the gold. They only had swords, so they thought of a sword tournament. The first one to break their opponent's sword wins all the gold!

Peter won, and Captain Hook gave Peter Pan a clock in an orange present box. When Peter Pan got back to his hide out, the clock exploded! Captain Hook saw smoke rising from the island. "Oh no! Peter Pan is in trouble! I must get him," said Captain Hook! Suddenly he saw something flash. Tinker Bell popped up. She looked worried. He's angry at me, thought Captain Hook.

A black dusty thing showed up. Peter Pan showed up with crossed arms. His feather was a pile of ashes. His back was singed. His shoes were burnt. "oops," said Captain Hook. "I guess I bought the wrong clock from teh wrong pirate shop. I thought it was a non-exploding clock shop. Black Bead's shop wasn't what I thought. I guess he is still alive. I've just known him since I was five. I thought he was a legend, but once I saw him here I decided to go to his shop. Anyway, I guess I overlooked his shop," Captain Hook was embarrassed. He then looked away and Peter Pan disappeared.

The Truth About The Real Snow White
By Emily M., Adelaide, and Catherine

Once upon a time, a long long time ago in a castle, a queen wished she had a daughter that had lips as red as blood, skin as white as snow, and hair as black as ebony. When Snow White was born, her mother, the queen, passed away. The king was broken hearted. After many years the king married me!

One day I bought a magical mirror and I thought it was a regular mirror. But I was wrong- it was an evil mirror! So one day I was walking around the castle and I got dirty, so I went to change my clothes. But right before I got in, the evil mirror forced the hunter to kill Snow White! I slipped in a puddle and I fell. Then the hunter went into the woods and found Snow White. Snow White saw the arrow and screamed at the top of her lungs and ran around in circles. The hunter saw how beautiful Snow White was and he said to himself, "She's too beautiful to be killed so he went to kill a pig. When he turned around, she wasn't here. By that time she was running crazy for a rest stop. She saw a little house and went in. She found seven little beds and pushed them together and started sleeping.

The hunter got a pig and killed it and brought the heart to the magic mirror. The evil mirror said, "Good job!" The evil mirror soon realized the hunter killed a pig, not Snow White. So the evil mirror asked me to buy some fresh apples from the market for Snow White. But he put a poison one in the basket and it was the best looking one. I went to Snow White's little cottage and knocked on the door. I said she can have an apple. She ate the shiny apple and fainted. I gasped and ran to the castle.

The little dwarfs found here and started crying. 700 little tears went on the floor day and night. they put her in a golden case that was 7 times as big as their beds. One day a prince came riding on a horse. He saw Snow White and wanted Snow White to be his wife. So he asked the dwarfs if he could take Snow White to his castle. The dwarfs said ok and they cried a lot more.

The prince put snow white on his horse. The horse tripped over a branch and fell a little. The apple core fell out of Snow White's mouth and she was alive again! The dwarfs were so happy they laughed and danced around the horse! The prince rode the horse back to the castle with Snow White on the back. They got married, and I was invited. The dwarfs were so happy!

The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk
By Eric, Isiah, and Brodie

Our story begins here at a castle owned by me, the Giant. I had three treasures- a golden egg, a magic harp, and five gold coins. Then one day I saw a pesky little kid named Jack. My maid came in and said that a boy was stealing the golden egg! I ran outside and saw Jack climb down a beanstalk! I was going to say, "Why did you steal the golden egg?"

Then the next day Jack was back- DUN DUN DUN! I saw the boy go into the closet where the magic harp was. The boy came out of the closet with the harp! I ran up to Jack and Jack ran through my legs! I said, "Why are you stealing my stuff?" Jack said, "I need the money now be quiet!" Then Jack went back down the beanstalk!

Jack got down first and he cut down the beanstalk so that I fell down- DUN DUN DUN! I hit teh ground. I found another seed on the ground. I planted the seed and climbed the beanstalk to my castle. I ordered my maid to get my treasures back. The maid was as big as a person. The maid knocked on the door of Jack's cottage and then Jack's mother opened the door. The maid explored the house for the golden things. then she found them and ran as fast as she could up to the beanstalk into my house. The maid created a huge wall around the castle.

The next day Jack saw the wall and he ran to the store and bought boxing gloves. When Jack returned, he punched the wall and it took two days to break it. Jack was looking for the treasure. It was night time and Jack saw something shiny. It was the five gold coins! He ran back to th ecottage and put the coins somewhere safe. He ran back to the castle and was looking for the rest of the treasure.

I woke up and saw the thief! I chased Jack down the beanstalk. Jack was back! He stole the golden coins and the golden egg. He ran home and I followed him to the cottage. The police sent me to jail, now everyone thinks I'm mean and guilty but I'm innocent! Please report this note to the police!

The Big Giant

Lord Farquad's Diary (from Shrek)
By Blair and Holly

Hello, I'm Lord Farquad. It all started when I wanted to be king. Suddenly my robot guards came back with a magic mirror. I said, "Mirror mirror on the wall..." then Ginger Bread Man said, "Yo Fred, tell him a joke!" "So..." said the mirror. "You want to be king. Here are three beautiful princesses. Princess #1 is one hot chick, give it up for Sleeping Beauty! Princess #2 is Cinderella! #3 is one princess that is surrounded by hot boiling lava. Give it up for Princess Fiona! So is it # 1, # 2, or # 3?" With some help from my robot guards I chose Fiona.

Soon I had a fighting arena for Princess Fiona! Soon Shrek came and this is what I said- Go away ODOR! What I meant was that I wanted the bad smell to go away. The knights thought that I said OGRE, not ODOR! Then Shrek killed all the knights. I let the ogre get Fiona for me. I went to the caslte and I couldn't stop looking at Fiona.

One month later, Shrek came back with Fiona. When Fiona saw how "huge" I was, my muscles made her fall in love by first sight! One hour later, we were at the wedding. Right before we kissed, the ogre came in and ruined the whole wedding! then Fiona turned into an ogre! As if that weren't bad enough, a dragon ate me and it burped out my crown! I am still writing in her stomach!

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
By Brittany, Nayomi, and Sarah

Hi, my name is Sam the wolf. I love oatmeal cookies. One day I was baking cookies for my grandmother. But we didn't have enough flour. So I went to Freddy, the pig's house. But I had allergies so by accident I sneezed and the house fell down! So I went to Johnny the pig's house to ask him for some flour. But then I had to sneeze again. Again, this house fell down. So I went to Alfred the pig's house to ask him for some flour. I sneezed again but the house did not fall down this time. I asked Alfred for flour but he never gave it to me. I really badly needed some flour to bake these cookies so I climbed down the chimney. I didn't know that the pigs had set a pot of boiling water there so when I went down I burned my behind! I jumped up into the air and ran into teh woods to find a lake to cool myself down. The lesson I learned was that when someone says no, that means no! Later that day, I went back home and my grandmother had a surprise for me! She had two whole bags of cookies. She said when I was at teh pig's house she went to the market to get some cookies. So my grandma and I sat down to have some cookies and milk.

 

The Fairy Godmother's Good Side (from Shrek 2)
By Matthew, Reba, and Jason

All I wanted was for my son, Charming, to get married to Fiona. But that nice ogre went into our property! I just wanted to teach him a lesson. So this is what happened.

It's not nice to trespass in our property- that's intruding! To teach him a lesson this is how a tree that can shoot water shot at Shrek. I dressed up as the tree and man, it's going to teach him a lesson. Fiona's mom dressed as Fiona. When Shrek finally arrived at the castle, the queen said I hate you! Go back to the swamp where you belong. Shrek only came to Far Far and Away because Fiona wanted to.

So he went back to the swamp and stayed there for a couple of days. But soon after, Fiona found out that Shrek left and she invited him back but he must promise that he won't intrude on Fairy Godmother's property. The reason why I exposed the king's true form was because he made a deal with me.

The End- They live happily ever after

The Wizard of Oz from the Wicked Witch's Point of View
By Allison, Emily S., and Lexus

It was bedtime and time for Dorothy to go to sleep. Just when Dorothy went to sleep she had a dream. Dancing munchkins danced and sang a lollipop song. Dorothy whispered, "Where am I?" Just then a huge bubble appeared with Glinda in it. Just then Dorothy screamed, "Where am I?" Glinda was surprised to see Dorothy in Oz. "My dear Dorothy, what are you doing in Oz?" "What," said Dorothy. "Oz," said Glinda. "I'm not in Kansas anymore," asked Dorothy. "Noooo," said Glinda. "Anyway, who are you," asked Dorothy. "My dear Dorothy, I'm Glinda the good witch of the East." "I want to go home," answered Dorothy. Just then Glinda put down two beautiful red slippers. Dorothy gasped, "They're beautiful"! "I know," said Glinda. Dorothy put on the slippers. "What are they," asked Dorothy. "They're my ruby red slippers. They will help you get home." "How will I do that," asked Dorothy. "You have to see the Wizard, then you tap them three times," the witch said. "Wait," said Dorothy, "How do you get there?" But it was too late. Glinda had already took off.

Glimmer Glimmer Glimmer went the wicked witch's crystal ball. The witch looked in it and saw a little girl singing a very funny song- "We're off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz!" The witch was mad and said, "First of all, those are my sister's  ruby red slippers. Second of all, she never lets ME wear them! Third of all, why can't we all be friends?" When Dorothy got there with the Tinman, the Lion, and the Scare Crow, Dorothy said bad things about the witch. So the witch got a little mad. The witch punished Dorothy. Maybe that's why she was mean to her.

Jack and the Beanstalk
By George, Mark, Justin, and Derek

I am the giant. This is my perspective of what happened...

One day I saw a boy trespassing in my castle. Then he crept into my giant toaster while my wife was feeding him bread! I came down and smelled him but I didn't know where he was hiding. So I said, "Fe Fi Fo Fum, I smell a boy so I shall skin his bones to make my bread." Then I ate my breakfast and I called my wife to bring me my gold. I counted them until I dozed off. Then the boy crept out, stole my gold, and ran away! The next time I saw him he was trying to steal my hen but I was asleep so I didn't know. I told my wife to bring me my magic harp. I ordered it to play a tune. Again I fell asleep. The boy failed to steal the harp because the harp called out, "Master!" Then I awoke immediately. I ran around chasing him, roaring! Then the boy ran out of breath. How lucky I was! I got ready to pounce but he ran again. I ran after him. "Get back here," I shouted! But that didn't stop him. He climbed down the beanstalk and I climbed down behind him. It was a long way down. "Come back," I yelled! But the boy didn't listen. My guess was he didn't hear me. We were very close to the ground. All of a sudden I was a bit scared. The boy was holding an axe. With one mighty swing, he chopped down the bean stalk and I went flying to Michigan. We never saw each other again. I hope that the boy learned to never steal our people's things.
