Here is the story the 1st graders wrote when Author Dashka Slater visited us at James John.
Once there was a fish named Selena. Every day Selena liked to jump like a dolphin. One day, Selena got sick from too much jumping. When she had the fish pox, hair grew out f her mouth. Because of that her owner gave her fish medicine stuff. But the medicine turned her into a dinosaur. But then her friend Pepe came over and Selena kicked Pepe and he had to learn Kung Fu. Until finally Pepe gave Selena dinosaur-turn-back-into-fish medicine. Now Selena studies Kung Fu and every once in awhile gives Pepe a bloody nose.
