Overview

Monster fables is a fairy tale story about a kindly wizard who lives in a castle and uses his magic to teach and help children who have various social and moral difficulties. It is a collection of 5 different stories, about an ice cream monster, a toy thief monster, a playground bully monster, a homeless, shy monster, and 3 class clown monsters. Each monster is actually a child that struggles with a problem related to the type of monster that they are transformed into. Near the end of the book, the wizard is revealed and his gift of a special magic potion that transforms each child is explained. The wizard's history and his personal life are explained also in the last section of the book. It was primarily influenced by Disney, and by experiences that I have had while babysitting for my sisters.

CHAPTER 1

A monster ate my ice cream, I know not why, but when I looked in the freezer I started to cry.

That ice cream monster is quite a thief! His villainous acts are beyond belief!

Throughout the city there came reports, "a monster ate my ice cream, he has no remorse!

That monster better watch his back ... He will never see it coming! At the ice cream store I will set a trap!

OOH that monster! I can take it no more! He ate the entire ice cream store!

"I am so sorry the monster said, it didn't turn out like I planned in my head. I love ice cream but I do feel bad. I didn't mean to make you sad.

The monster turned back into a boy. I forgive you she said, let's have ice creamy joy!!

There was a monster who was a bully he pushed everyone around ...

Let me go you big bully!

He didn't care when he knocked others down.

He just roared and said," I am king of the playground.

I am the strongest there is! No one can stop me!

All the kids ran away. The monster was too mean!
