Once day I went to Mexico. We went to Baja California first. We saw the whales and the deserts. The whales were very big. The deserts were very hot and it was fun. Then we went to get pesos (which means money). With out pesos we bought a sombrero and mask. Then we went to our hotel and we went to bed. The next day we went to the jungle. We saw a lot of animals. Then we went to see the ruins. They were cool.

The First Pet Dog
One day long, long ago there lived a wolf. There was a family of cavemen. One day the wolf went to the caveman's house. They let the wolf in. So they made the wolf a pet. One day they were making soup. The wolf jumped into the soup and the wolf changed into a dog. They kept the dog for a pet. And named it Cubby. The next day they went outside and played with Cubby.

My Mt. Fuji Adventure
One day on Dec. 25., I went to Mt. Fuji with my family. It took us 5 hours to get to the top. When we came down Mt. Fuji there was a big avalanche. We got snow on all of us. My brother, my mom, and my dad got hurt. "Don't panic Sam, we have to get down Mt. Fuji by ourselves!" When my sister and I went down Mt. Fuji my sister got hurt because she tripped on a rope. Then I was by myself, but I saw a house on the mountain. I went to the house and saw a wizard. The wizard let me in and I asked him if he can help me and he said, "Yes, I can help you, what do you need?" "I need magic to help my family," I said. The wizard helped me and my family and my family went down Mt. Fuji and lived happily ever after.

The Haunted House
This mad scientist had a patient named Frankenstein. He lived in a haunted house. No body will go there. One day he went to the basement. He saw a coffin. He opened the coffin and a mummy was sleeping.
Five women came to the scientist's house. They were witches. The five witches had wigs on. Their names were, Mandy, Judy, Irina, Lea and Sarah. Everyday the mad scientist went out to get more patients. A man came everyday to take care of the house. The man was a vampire.
The mad scientist came home. Nobody knew he was a mad scientist. He had a pet named shadows. It was a cat. The scientist had a Halloween party. He made a potion to turn the kids into spiders. The potion was only for kids. All the kids on the block were there.
He turned half of the kids into a spider. An hour later all the kids got turned into a spider. 100 kids saw Frankenstein. They woke Frankenstein and ate the mad scientist. Frankenstein broke in half and all the kids were still spiders.

The Book of Answers About Bats
Bats cannot hurt you. Bats eat fruit, insects and bugs. bats help us. There are 1,000 different kinds of bats. Bats live in mines, caves, bridges and attics. The biggest bat is a flying fox bat.
