Once upon a time there was a small red fish that was born in North Carolina. The name is Gumball. For 10 years Gumball swam in the Holdin Beach in North Carolina. Gumball likes to swim with lots of fish, especially red fish because they are red and Gumball is red, too. Sometimes Gumball swims with orange, blue and green fish. It's really fun for Gumball to swim with other fish. Gumball's favorite color is red because Gumball is red, too!

By Becca Trout
There once was a fish that lived at school. He was a small and beautiful. He had brown spots, green body, white belly, a red face and red eyes. He went on rides and adventures with his friends. The only reason he went is because his owner, Becca, said to try it and if he didn't he would not have fun. He went and it was the happiest fish in the whole sea. He took them boating and camping together and they lived happily ever after.
By Cheyenne Church
Hi, my name is Bubbles. When I first met my buddy, Cheyenne, she came in Mrs. Godfrey's class. One day Cheyenne and I went to the ocean for an adventure. When we got there, the water was clean, like a pool. So we jumped in from the diving board that we built. We ended up in the ocean where the sharks live! I was scared. But then I told Cheyenne to turn around. On the way back, we saw seahorses, clownfish (one of me). When Cheyenne and I got out and unbuilt the diving board, we went home. I got a nice warm bubble bath and then I went in the hot tub.

Sweet Dreams Snow Cone
By Adele Macatee
I make sweet dreams snow cone every year. Last year my sister thought they were yucky! So, I told her I would make the best ever. I put in gummy bears, ice, lemon slices, lime juice, cream, whipped cream, milk, soda pops, soda, strawberries, apple juice, food coloring and raspberries. When I was done, my snow cone was the biggest one ever in the whole world. It was so big that it went right through the top! So, they brought a helicopter to get it out. The town kept following me everywhere I went in town. So, I told them I would share, even with my sister. At the end they all went home. The next day, their eyes changed colors. They got mad, but they all laughed. The color wore off after they went to sleep. They all had funny dreams.
Sweet Dream Birthday Cake
By Whitnay Tomlinson Do you like cake? Well I do. This is a story about my family and how for once in their life, they were glad they did not eat any cake. Once there was a mother, father, a boy and three girls. Their names were Naomi, Marcus, Isaiah, Paris, Isabella and Whitnay. Tomorrow was Isabella's birthday. That night the parents made a birthday cake. They put in chocolate candy bars, skittles, ice cream, Licorice, melted chocolate, jelly beans, candy corn, gum drops, lollipops, and gum and then rolled out the dough and put it in the oven. Then they woke up the kids and went to the beach while it was cooking. They stayed for about and hour or two. Then went to their Aunt's house to spend the night. They woke up the next morning and went home and made the kids play outside. Then they mixed all the candy with the icing, put the icing on the cake and put it in the fridge to cool. Then they went to their grandparent's house while it cooled. Next they put another layer on the cake and put the sprinkles and other stuff like that on.
They invited everyone from the neighborhood. Everyone, except the family, ate thirteen pieces or more. They went home and went to sleep. The next morning, not even the baby woke not even the cats and dogs woke up for twenty-two days and nights. They never ate anything ever again. The whole family was glad they ate one piece.
The Magic Licorice Whip
By Eleanor Hatch
One day after school, Katie and Billy felt like having something sweet. So, they went to the candy shop. Katie's and Billy's favorite type of candy was licorice. So, Katie and Billy brought six licorice whips. Three for each of them. Billy and Katie carry six licorice whips to the counter. The man at the counter said, "Oh, you don't need six licorice whips. Are you going to eat all those licorice whips by yourselves? You don't need six licorice whips. One for each of you is enough." But, Billy and Katie lied and said we are going to share all this licorice with our family." So, the man at the counter put the licorice in a bag not knowing that Billy and Katie were going to eat all the licorice by themselves. When Katie and Billy got outside, they skipped away because they had tricked the store keeper. When Katie and Billy got home, they ran upstairs to their bedroom. Katie gave each of them three licorice whips. Billy and Katie gobbled up the licorice whips. That night Katie and Billy weren't hungry for dinner. Their mom said she had made a pumpkin pie. Billy groaned. Katie said, "I'm not hungry." The next day Billy and Katie weren't hungry. Billy and Katie wished they hadn't eaten six licorice whips. That evening Billy and Katie still weren't hungry. Their mom urged them to eat, but they weren't hungry. That night Katie and Billy got sick. The next morning, Billy and Katie went to the candy store. This time they listened to the man and they never ate licorice again.
