Lizzie and Coraline: A Mermaid Adventure

by Isabella Fyfe, age 7

Once upon a time, there lived a little mermaid called Lizzie. Lizzie had long blonde hair and blue eyes. Lizzie liked to play with seals. They swam together looking for secret treasures.  She had a mermaid friend named Coraline who had long black hair and green eyes. Coraline loved to stick her head out of the water and look at the moon at night.

One time, Coraline stuck her head out of the water for too long looking up at the moon and she got a stiff neck. Because she had a stiff neck, she didn't feel like going back down into the water and because of this a sea monster spotted her and attacked her. Lizzie helped Coraline fight off the sea monster by hitting it with her strong mermaid tale and it finally gave up and swam away, but by that time, Coraline had been hurt. A large bruise was spreading across her body and it hurt her to move.

Lizzie knew what she had to do. She told Coraline to stay where she was and that she would be back. Lizzie had to go down to the deep, dark cave and find the magic purple oyster pearl she had noticed on one of her adventures. It had magical healing powers. It would help to heal Coraline. The pearl glowed brightly and was breathtaking to see.

First, Lizzie had to get the shiny, blue shield that was so shiny, it would help her to see within the deep, dark cave. Her seal friends told her where she could find it, but she had to swim past the large blue whale in order to get to the shiny shield. Lizzie tried to swim past the blue whale, but she got swallowed by the whale and had to find a way out.

Lizzie was a clever mermaid, and she knew just how she could get out of the whale. She tickled the whale with her long, blonde hair and swam out of his mouth while he was laughing. She then swam to the deep, dark cave.

The shield helped light her way, and before long, she found the magic purple pearl. She held it tight in her hand and swam back to Coraline and gave her the pearl. Coraline swallowed the pearl and immediately started to feel better.

Lizzie warned Coraline not to look up at the moon for so long next time.

The Rainbow Fairy

The Rainbow Fairy
by Isabella Fyfe, age 7

Once upon a time there was a Rainbow Fairy. Her job was to paint the rainbows that covered the sky after it rained.  But she needed rain in order to make a rainbow, so she borrowed a drop of rain from the Rain Fairy.

When it was sunny, she added a drop of rain to the air. The magic raindrop would cause the clouds to form more rain. Then when the sun came back out, she would bring the rainbow out in the sky. She had a paint brush and painted the rainbow bright colors.

She was friends with the Tooth Fairy, the Tangle Fairies and the Animal Fairies. She waved to say “hi” the next time she saw the Rain Fairy, and gave her back the rain magic she had borrowed to start the rain.

Puppy & Kitten Love

I wrote this to enter a little Valentine's Day writing contest at the blog of one of my mommy's friends, Susanna Leonard Hill. I am six years old, so I might be too young to enter officially, but I wanted to try and write for it anyway.
Puppy & Kitten Love
Once upon a time, there lived a stripey kitten named Jynx and a dotty puppy named Spike. They had great fun together. They were given an invitation to go to someone's house for Valentine's Day and they were both very excited about it. They were never, ever, ever afraid to go to anyone's house because they were together and they always looked out for each other. When they were apart, they were never happy. When they got to their friend's party, a lot of their friends told them, "A kitten and a puppy can't be friends," but they didn't listen because they knew they were the best of friends.

Christmas Time

written by Isabella, age 5

There were twin girls who really wanted toys for Christmas, because they were hoping that they would get something new and exciting. They were bored with their old toys, so they gave their old toys away to poor children who had no toys at all.

On Christmas morning, they woke up and quickly ran out to see what they would find in their stockings and if Santa had left them any presents. They found lots of new and exciting toys. They loved their toys so much that they played with them for years and years and never grew bored of them at all.

My mommy has a book called "How To Draw Princesses." I looked at the pictures and tried really hard to draw the princess in one of the pictures because she was really pretty. I hope you like the princess.
