Elephant And Mouse
Alexis, 9, Illinois

The moral of my fable is:  Never bully anyone no matter how small.
My fable is:
One day Elephant was planting his garden. But then he ran out of seeds. So he walked to the market.
On his way, he stumbled across a tiny Mouse. “Hey, you’re in my way,” said Elephant, “and so is your house.”
“Oh sir, I’m horribly sorry, but this is not my home,” said Mouse.
The Elephant grabbed Mouse and screamed, “Move your house!” “Ok, ok I will. ”
The next day Elephant watered his garden and came back. “I’m working on it,” said Mouse.
“You better be,” said Elephant.
So every day from then on, Elephant kept coming back again and again.
But then Elephant got so angry, he ran as fast as he could, but he stopped and the mouse was not there. He ran away and the Elephant was never heard from again.


The Lion And The Dolphin
Maggie, 9, Illinois

The moral of my fable is:  You should never do something if you don’t know how to do it.
My fable is:
Once there was a lion and a dolphin. Dolphin was swimming in a pool when lion came along.
Dolphin said, “Want to swim with me?” “Yah,” said the lion.
The lion kept trying to swim. But finally he got out of the pool. He said to the dolphin, “Want to play on the playground?”
“Yes!” replied dolphin. We can play on the slide.
It started to rain and the dolphin couldn’t move.
The lion ran away. The dolphin was yelling, “Help! Help!” Then a snake came over and helped so they could get out of the rain. Snake and dolphin became friends.


The Elephant And The Ant
Sean, 9, Wisconsin

The moral of my fable is:  Wishes don’t always give you what you want.
My fable is:
It was a hot dry day in the lowlands and Elephant was trying to shield himself from the sun. “Why does the sun always make a beautiful day a hot day?” he complained.
“Oh good, there’s a grove of trees ahead!” He trudged toward a grove of trees when suddenly an ant bit his toe. “You were about to crush my home!” cried the ant.
Elephant looks down and notices a town of anthills. He was awed by their structure. “Ant, does this protect you from the sun?”
“Underground it is damp and cool, so yes,” replied Ant. “Forget the trees!” Elephant mumbles. “I want to make myself an anthill instead.”
He asks politely, “Ant, can you tell me how to make one?” The Ant asked, “How many more questions are you going to ask me? Can’t you see I’m busy!?”
“Just one more. How long will it take to make one?”
“A LIFETIME!!!” shouted Ant, and then he disappeared into his hole.
Elephant muttered to himself, “I don’t need that stupid ant to tell me what to do.” Then he remembered what elephants are known for — granting wishes. “I wish for a house like the ants.”
Poof! An anthill, not an elephanthill, appeared.


The Three Mice
Susan, 9, Indiana

The moral of my fable is:  Trust a friend.
My fable is:
Once upon a time there were three mice, Francen, Mark and Sam. Sam wanted to be Francen’s friend. But Francen did not think Sam was cool.
Sam walked to his hole sad and disappointed.
Francen and Mark got hungry. They found cheese and ate it all up.
Soon two cats started to chase Francen and Mark. Francen said, “Help, Help, Help me, Mark!” It was too late.
Mark was dead. One of the cats ate Mark. Sam awoke in terror. Sam saved Francen by sticking a needle in the cat’s paw. Sam and Francen became best friends forever.
Sam and Francen played tag, hide and seek, had a wonderful friendship and lived happily ever after.


A Dog And A Pig
Kellie, 10, Indiana

The moral of my fable is:  Respect
My fable is:
Once upon a time there was a dog and a pig. The pig played in the mud. A dog came up to the pig and asked, “Can I play in the mud with you?”
The pig said, “No, I want some time alone.” The dog said, “I am not your friend then.” The pig said, “I do not care then.”
The dog was walking and walking. The pig said, “I do not like friends anyways.” “If you do not mind, I do not care if you don’t want to be my friend,” the dog said.
The dog walked away and left the pig alone to play. Later, the dog went to the pig and said, “Do you want to talk about being friends?”
The pig said, “Sure!”
They talked and talked and became friends. They played and played until it was dark.


Brittney And Angel

The moral of my fable is:  Be kind to others.
My fable is:

One day the dog was chasing, chasing and chasing the cat to the gas station. She would not stop until I got a hold of her leash. Then the dog said to the cat, “I just want to be your friend.”
The cat said, “Oh.”
Then the dog and the cat went outside to play Mark-o-Polo and hide and seek. Later I took them walking around. It was a long walk. When we got back home they were hungry. So I went to feed them but there was no dog or cat food so we had to go all the way to the store to get food for Brittney and Angel.
They ate and then got bored so we went to the park and played. They lived happily ever after.

When they got there, they met a fox. He said, “Who brought you here?” “Cat took me here,” said bird. “Who is cat?” asked Fox and “Who are you?”
“Cat is my friend.” Then cat came and whispered to bird, “I’m scared!”
So Bird said, “Let’s find a tree to sleep in for the night.” Cat said, “Are we living here?” “Yes,” said Bird.
They found a tree to live in and bird asked Cat, “Why are you scared of Fox?” “Because he looks big and scary,” said Cat.
“What if fox is nice?” asked Bird.
