Mom: What are you doing Oreo?Oreo: Writing another story to add to my book.Mom: Oh really? What story?Oreo: This one is called “The Cat and The Beanstalk”—- Once upon a time there was a cat named Gregor who lived with his very poor family in a very poor town. The whole town was so poor that no one had any money to buy food. So they made salads with the grass and the dandelions. As Gregor got older, he started to get tired of grass and dandelions salads. So Gregor decided to go and visit the Great Wizard and ask him for a magic spell to make food appear so that the town could have a feast. Gregor set out alone through the woods early the next morning after his breakfast salad. When Gregor found the Great Wizard and asked for a spell, the wizard asked for something in return. Gregor had nothing except the grass and dandelions salad that his mom packed him for lunch. So, Gregor offered his lunch to the Great Wizard. The wizard was so humbled by Gregor’s act of giving him all his foods to eat that he agreed to send Gregor home with a magic spell. The Great Wizard then gave Gregor three magic beans and told him to plant them that evening. Gregor would have rather eaten the beans, but he went home and planted them as the Wizard told him to. Early the next morning when Gregor woke up, he saw a huge beanstalk that was as high as the clouds! The beanstalk was growing from where he had planted the magic beans! There was no food on the beanstalk, so Gregor decided to climb it and see if there was any food at the top. When he got to the top of the beanstalk, Gregor smelled a fantastic smell! “It can’t be”, he thought. Then, Gregor saw something amazing… A giant bacons. The giant bacons was so big that it alone could feed the entire town for years to come! Gregor thought about how to get the bacons down the beanstalk. It was too big to carry and there was no one to help him. Then, it came to him. “Bacons is crispy” he thought to himself, “and crispy bacons breaks easily into bits”. At that, Gregor sat down and started breaking the giant bacons into little bits and throwing them down the beanstalk. Breaking up the giant bacons was a lot of work and took Gregor all day! When he finished, it was evening, and so he climbed down the beanstalk to the gound below. Tired and hungry, Gregor finally reached the ground to find the whole town singing and happy! Gregor’s mom came up to him and said, “Where have you been my son? It has been raining bacons bits all day! We have made a wonderful feast with all that we have gathered! The bacons bits that were left on the ground have sprouted into tiny bacons trees! We will never go hungry again!” When he heard this, Gregor was very happy! He sat down with the town to feast, and they all lived happily ever after!
