The Princess and the Wood

When Julie was in the third grade she wrote a short story. She carefully tore out three lined pages from her notebook and wrote her story in big block letters leaving space between each paragraph for a picture.

The story was very simple and direct. It told of how a beautiful princess was kidnapped by an evil queen and lost in the forest. The princess wandered around the forest for days looking for helpful talking animals but all the animals were mean and looked like they would rather eat the princess than talk to her. They didn’t eat her, however, because Julie felt that having the princess die in this manner would be counter productive to the “happily ever after” ending she was going for. Eventually the princess finds her way home and is greeted by her father. The two of them do then indeed live happily ever after. No one knows what happened to the evil queen.
