Once upon a time there was an apple with a worm in it. The worm thought the apple was tasty. He even ate the seeds. Little green branches started coming out of its head. The branches grew bigger and bigger and he could hardly move. He started to look like a green porcupine. He squirmed home and his mother trimmed his branches which later died so that he became just a regular worm again.

The Magic Apple Seeds

Once upon a time there was a man who could do magic. He made an apple disappear except for its seeds. The seeds started to dance. They jumped off the table onto the floor. They danced out the door and fell in the ground. Now there is a tree with golden apples growing there.

Our favorite apple stuff is carmel apples. First you get juicy red apples. Next, you put a stick in each apple. Then you melt the carmels in a pan. Dip the apples in the melted carmels and roll in nuts. Let them cool and eat them. Yum! Yum!

The Worm In The Apple

My name is Wormie Worm and I live in an apple. On Friday I woke up and I was so hungry that I ate my house. So I went up to the office where you buy houses. But I did not like the house that they showed me. So I went out and looked for my own. I walked from Mississippi to Washington and found a fruit castle. There, I lived happily ever after.

If I were an apple I would sit on a tree and look at the city. I would see how lovely the big city is and look at the lovely sky. I would go to the zoo and pet the zoo animals. I would see a pretty acorn and say would you like to go with me to the movies . She would say yes so we would go to see "Pokemon 2001". We would have a great time.

Apples, Apples Everywhere

A long time ago, people were starving, so they tried to grow some apples. First, they planted one thousand apple seeds in their village. Next, one thousand apple trees grew and covered their houses. Apples fell from the trees and landed inside houses on the ground, on cars, on sheds, down chimneys, in rivers, in swimming pools, in cellars and even on people’s heads. So, guess what the village people did? They made apple cider, apple pies, applesauce, apple sandwiches, apple bologna, and apple cake. They were never hungry again.
