Ok, this book isn’t exactly on Amazon. I wrote a lot of little stories when I was a little girl and kept my eye on the prize. I’ve always envisioned myself as an author! Always, always, always. Anyway, here is text from a book I wrote at five years-old. Keep in mind there were a few mispelled words and yes, the original contains illustrations (courtesy of Crayola crayons).

And there was no more room.
