Unicorns and Trolls

Story by Jamal Barbari

The unicorns ran beside the trolls in the heavy rain because the unicorns and trolls loved to play in the rain together. The unicorns would slide in the water on their hooves and the trolls would leap long distances and fall into big puddles. Water would splash everywhere and all of the surrounding animals became angry with the unicorns and trolls. But before the angry animals could yell at them, the unicorns would quickly run away from the animals to continue their fun. The nearby animal villages were always warned of the unicorns and trolls playing in the rain, but none of the animals could ever catch the unicorns and trolls to punish them.

The Prince’s Kiss

Story by Nicholas Kupsch

The prince kissed the dragon in a desert under a blazing sun. Well, actually, it just looked like that because, you see the dragon was dead. It was very VERY hot in the desert and dragons need to drink a lot of water. It had died a few days ago probably. The prince had found it lying there. He was lost and had been wandering around the desert for what seemed like months. Stupidly, he put his head in the mouth to see what it would feel like to be eaten by a dragon. And now his head was stuck…

The Giant’s Flip Flops

Story by Nicholas Kupsch

The brave giant with shoulder-length frizzy brown hair doesn’t ever wear brand-new flip flops in a jungle. Especially not THESE flip-flops… they had just been made for him out of some old mattresses and thick rope. He would only ever walk over lovely green fields or meadows of flowers. Look at him run in the fields! Oh no… he just ran through Mrs. Potter’s veggie garden! Now there’s a mattress-sized patch of flattened tomatoes.

Bald and Hairy

Story by Jamal Barbari

The troll and the bald magicians ran away from the unicorn with the snow-white afro. The unicorn only wanted to give the troll and the magicians some of its beautiful white hair.

The Mummy with the Snow-White Hair

Story by Jamal Barbari

The hairy mummy with the shoulder-length snow-white hair isn’t going to jump in the castle to attend the dance with friends. The mummy was afraid that if it jumped into the castle, its hair would turn a different color because of the castle curse! The castle curse changed people’s hair colors all the time, and once the hair color changed once, it could never be changed again. Some people liked their hair color change, but the mummy loved its beautiful snow-white hair and never wanted the color to change. Rather than jumping into the castle, the mummy chose to dance outside the castle instead, and the moon brightened the mummy’s snow-white hair so much that people believed there were two moons shining instead of one and the mummy danced all night until the sunrise.
