   "Our Monster Story  2006"
by,the children in Miss Hope & Miss Faith's Class

"There was a little monster and she growled with her teeth because she was mad. She was mad because the bad guy wanted to kick her and hurt her. But her belt clicked on and grumbled and her toes horned at the bad guy! Then she was happy and stomping and jumping. Then a ghost came and saved her and her lips went “mup, mup, mup”.
