The Bear And The Fox
Molly, 8, Pennsylvania, USA

The moral of my fable is:  Never steal or who knows what will happen.
My fable is:
Once there was a very colossal bear that made a delicious chocolate pie. While it was cooling off bear took a stroll.
Later the fox saw the bear leave. He scurried by bear’s house and smelled the wonderful aroma of the chocolate pie.
Fox crept into the bear’s house and ate the pie that bear had worked hard to prepare and bake.
When massive bear returned and saw fox, he gave him a forceful toss into a seemingly bottomless ocean where a starving shark ate the fox in one huge bite.
The next day bear made another chocolate pie and ate it. All the foxes who knew the fox who stole the bear’s pie, never stole anything ever again.

My fable is:
Once there was a glittery butterfly who was flying and dancing high up in the sky. She was bragging about how brave she thought she wass, when she got very tired and very exhausted from flying.
She decided to come down to the ground so she could rest for about 30 minutes.
After she wasn’t tired anymore, she decided to go say “hi” or “hello” to her friendly friend, the fox. “EEEEK!” The butterfly was terrified because she got scared by her friendly friend the fox who sometimes scared people and animals by accident.
She ran out the door because she was very, very scared when her friend the friendly fox scared her!!

Mimi A., 8, Pennsylvania, USA

The moral of my fable is:  Stealing makes people sad and mad.
My fable is:
The Fox, The Rhino, and The Hippo were best friends. On a summer sizzling Sunday they went to the market where they grow all sorts of good food.
Fox got so hungry that when Rhino and Hippo were not looking, he snatched some grapes and ran away! He said to himself, “He he he! They will never know I took the grapes!”
As he was running, the two best friends caught him running away with the grapes. It made them so sad to see their friend stealing that they told Manager Wolf.
Manager Wolf called 911 and said, “Fox has stolen the last of my grapes! I am so mad, please help me!!” The cops rushed over to the market where they met Manager Wolf and they caught Fox with the grapes.
They put hand cuffs on him and put him in the back of their car. Rhino and Hippo looked at Fox in the car with disgust.
When Fox came out of jail, they were never his friend again because Rhino and Hippo were ashamed of Fox’s behavior.

“What’s it to you!” Lion growled. Lion was in a very bad mood because he woke up on the wrong side of the bed.
Cat said, “Well you don’t have to be snotty about it! Just because I’m better than you does not mean you have to be a brat about it!”
“Well, I could best you at anything! And that’s a fact Jack!” said Lion.
“Ya, right Corny de’ Lion! Give me any request you want and I shall fulfill it!”
“Well, I do have this bone in my throat that has been bugging me for ages! Will you get it out for me?” Lion spoke with a mysterious glint in his eyes.
“Sure!” Cat said without thinking even once. Cat then climbed into Lion’s throat and looked and looked but couldn’t find the bone.
