The Roller Skate Dog

Just like last year, this past winter all of the children at the Tongginator's elementary school were given the opportunity to write a short story, whether it be fiction or non-fiction, so that the Parent-Teacher Association could "publish" these stories. The children spent several days this spring illustrating their stories before sharing them with classmates and parents this past Friday.

Unfortunately, I missed out, which brought about feelings of guilt and disappointment, but there was little I could do at the time.  Doesn't change the fact that the Tongginator's story completely rocked the house.  She opted to go the whole fiction route this time, although I'm a-thinking that maybe quite possibly the Tongginator is hoping to turn this fiction story into non-fiction.

Y'all decide.

Superb story. I am amazed by her writing and her illustrations. What a talented girl! (Oh, and please can she have a dog ;))

I love to follow your blog from Liverpool in England, this is a fabulous story, Tongginator, as they say in Liverpool 'nice one' !! (It's like saying 'good job') Katie

That story was amazing. Well beyond a typical 8 year old. Great job Tongginator

Robin said...

Wow!!! I love her book!!! Sounds like you need to be checking into some non-allergenic breeds!

Mel said...

Ridiculously cute! She really is creative.

Leave it to me to get a couple days behind when you have a ton to post!! Wow - did anybody ever tell you that T is brilliant? I'm.just.sayin...

And what is it about our adopted kids that makes them such "old souls"? Our kids seem to be wise beyond their years, and while that's great, it also makes for more "challanging" parenting I think (ahving 3 older bios I've got a little different perspective I guess).

And finally Squirt's "stuff" - dag that sucks. May I offer a tad of insight? I may have my facts a little out of order, but the fruit smoothie was a day or two prior to the seizure - related? Just throwing that into the "maybe I saw something because I'm removed from the situtaion" mix.

love you guys - holding you in our hearts and prayers -

aus and co.

That was adorable! I don't like dogs, but I loved the story and illustrations. :)

Debby said...

Amazing story teller she is. I had to go back and make sure she wrote this. It really is good. So sad that you can't have a dog. y granddaughters want one so bad but their mom is also very allergic.

Love it!!!

Shari said...

She is an awesome writer! I love seeing her work because it always seems Amelia is about a year behind her so it gives me a peak into the future:)
I'm guessing the other 2nd graders didn't have stories quite as long;)

Wish you were allergy free!

Dawn said...

Well, $5.60 really is a good price for a dog... especially a St. Bernard! You should totally get one if that's what they're going for in your town. LOL

Great story. And you're right, I'm not so sure it's totally fiction.

She is simply incredible - the story, the illustrations. She is SO going to be a writer, just like her Mom!

I think you have a future author in your house. She is amazing!

And there is no guilt at all there about her wanting a dog. None at all. ;)

Carla said...

LOVE the story!!!! Does she know how BIG a St. Bernard gets?! ROFL!!!

I think a good outside dog might be a good fit. ;)

LOVE! :)

Perhaps the Tongginator would like to commiserate with my kids about how their asthmatic, dog-allergic moms have ruined their childhoods... They could share gluten-free snacks and discuss the challenges of training roller skate dogs and stuffed animal dogs (also named Max).

hahahahahahahahahaha LOVE it. What a fun little mind this girl has!

Aunt LoLo said...

First of all, your girl has a talent for story telling.

Secondly..I love the dog's name. ;-)

A fun story. I believe that there are some breeds of dogs which do not provoke allergies so that might be worth looking into.
