My first book (part 2)

Yesterday I shared the first half of a book I wrote in third grade.  I was obscenely proud of this work, which I guess goes to prove why I still have it 28 years later.  Today I’ll share the second half.  All spelling and grammar errors are as written.

DSC_0646So one day the princess started to build a boat, a steamship, that was humongously huge that would hold billions and trillions of Unicorns to take them to Colorado and California and Florida.

DSC_0647Having that happy thought, the princess started on her merry way. The princess started to sing a little song that went like this:

Hi ho hi ho

It’s off to Unicorns I go,

And off we go to Colorado

And I sing hi ho hi ho hi ho.

Off we go hi ho hi ho,

Hi ho hi ho hi ho hi ho hi ho

Hi ho o o o o o o o o o.


And finally after many long days and nights she found her people, the Unicorns, but this is not the end.  The Unicorns visited Colorado and they found nasty Pegasuses that thought only Pegasuses were the best.

DSC_0649They had a terribly bad war between the Unicorns and the Pegasuses.  One day something happened, a baby Pegasus and a baby Unicorn met each other and became friends and the grown-ups did too.

The End

*mic drop*

No I did not skip pages or switch in other stories.  That is it in all of its confused and inconsistent narrative glory.

Questions that I would love to ask my 8 year old self after reading this

  1. What were the special powers that the Queen/King/Prince have and how did the Magicians overpower them?
  2. Wait, how did the Princess find them when yesterday you told me that she never found them because they were on the Disappearing Island.  TELL ME MORE ABOUT DISAPPEARING ISLAND.
  3. If Colorado didn’t work out, what about California and Florida.
  4. And while we’re at it, how did they get a massive ship to the mountains of Colorado?
  5. Tell me about the war!
  6. How did two babies hammer out a peace agreement?
  7. Aren’t you scared that Disney will hit you with a copyright infringement suit?

I’ll be back later this week to rave to you about Tamsin Flower’s new project, Alchemy xii

  1. Clearly there’s going to be a sequel, because the author dropped so many hints and so much foreshadowing of things to come.

  2. […] grade magnum opus was “The Last Unicorn,” which I previously published. Read parts 1 and 2 if you want a good […]
