Babess, like her big sister before her, has discovered a need to write. This week she has been composing stories about unicorns. She started with the title page to her book: “The Unicorn Story – and 3 other storeis”, followed by a warning page, “Watch out this first story is frekie”. Then a frontispiece, “Please keep good cear of this book. This book belongs to ______________”.
The story she started on the other side of that page is very short (so far) but full of suspense.
I should note that Babess writes until she stops. Sometimes that’s at the end of the sentence, but sometimes it’s just at the end of a word, because she doesn’t know what happens next.
Here’s the first unfinished story:
Once upon a time there lived some butiful unicorns each one went to the lake evry second day but they didn’t notice there were unicorn Hunters spying on them. One tryed to catch All of them because they were so butiful another reched out his
I’m encouraging her to finish this one because I want to know what happens next! Her Dad asked how it ends. She looked at him and said thoughtfully, “I don’t know! I hope it’s nice…”
After that one, she wrote a whole page of another story, and today she has added several more pages. Again, it’s unfinished. I’ll post updates as they come. I’ve edited (formatted) it ever so slightly to indicate how the dialogue is intended to go.
Once upon a time there lived 12 butiful unicorns they were very speacal because evry second day they would go to the nearest villege to be pets the only one who noone wanted she was Elsa she never got chosen its because she was lazy but once when she went to the Princess she wanted the unicorn she asked the gards to put Elsa in the Palace Garden she tryed to escape but the gards leash was to strong. Elsas 11 sisters were Magie, Sophie, Mia, Gabbie, Ella, Lily, Edie, Hannah, Ruby, Bella, Mazy. They were butiful and very nice. Thier mother was the qeen they were all princesses. Villegers were very nice to the unicorns they had brothers 2 brothers Jack and Tom. The all were frends. The villegers fed them and at night they would leave the stable gates open and evry night the unicorns would sneak out of the cosey stables and met in the midle of the villige the meeting place always got robbed so they dicided to set A trap by using their Horns magic by saying Magic Magic Make A big trap.
Once it was morning the robers got ready to go on their jerny to rob the meeting place of the unicorns they pack robing bags to put the stuff in them and some lunch some drinks and robots to make it faster. The unicorns hid they hid out by the wdlnows [windows] to spy on the robers this was their plan. They would make A trap and make it invisable so the robers couldn’t see the trap and that was good because then they [the robbers] would run away and come back tomorrow.
The unicorns didn’t want the robers to come back they wanted to find the things the robers stole they thogt the thing that had been stolen would be in the robers hideout. The things that were stolen were bronze silver and gold the unicorns were ready to fight but the robers wernt when the robers were in a very smart rober siad “Maybe we should go now” but the rober that was in charge siad “No we want bronze silver and gold thing and more than one way more” the smart one siad “I have a fealling the unicorns have A trap set for us.”
Chief: Noncence they would never do that
Chiaf: Yes really now I have the same felling
The robers names were Tom, Jack, Sam, Thor, Blakness and Carol.
Carol: I thingk the traps coming down now
Blakness: I thing your rite
Jack: Then run
Carol: Hurry run it’s too strong
All together: Waaaaaaaah
Whew that worked it really worked our first plan that worked wow I want more plans to work siad Sophie.
Someone to rescue now and we now who that is its elsa c’mon we have to get to the Castle once the Princess touches her new pet it’s hers for ever so we beter fly but mia we don’t now how to fly that’s a problem isnt it well yes but if we see 11 birds lets ask them for their power if you do we’ll give you our power that would be our deal do we all agree
Well maybe I don’t think they want to walk but we’ve got no power but we could trick them Good idea Yeah I have a feeling we are being watched by the Princess. Well we’re getting worse arn’t we Yes. Well instead of walking my frend Kate gave me some flying powers and wings that control them selves wherever you have to go all you have to do is think of that place thats all.
but what kind of flying powers [...]
I’ll be encouraging her to write more tomorrow. And maybe I’ll suggest a few more full stops… I get breathless just reading the stories!
