FABULOUS FINISHES #1

APPLE TROUBLE

by Ragnhild Scamell

Just as this little hedgehog finishes building her nest under the old apple tree, an apple falls off and gets stuck on her back. Throughout the story, she seeks the help of others to get the apple off, but instead winds up getting even more things stuck . Not until a hungry goat eats the things from her back is the hedgehog able to fit in her nest. In the end, the wind blows another apple off the tree, but this time the apple doesn’t land on hedgehog because she is safe in her nest.  An apple falling in the beginning and an apple falling again in the end, wraps a nice bow around this story.  Great loop!

“The Grinch Got A Wonderful, Awful Idea!”

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS

by Dr. Seuss

Beyond his amazing ability to tell a cohesive story in rhyme, Dr. Seuss penned lines that were clever and colorful. This line is a favorite because it clearly demonstrates the juxtaposition between the Grinch and the Whos. What seems like a wonderful idea for the Grinch we immediately know is bound to turn out awful for the Whos. Brilliant!
