1: Hi, i'm | Hi, I'm Little Monster. I live in a root in Swamp Acres. I'm about to tell you a story that my Dad told me. When my Dad was a boy, just like me, he really liked a girl in school but she didn't like him. My Dad thought that if he had a lot of nice things then she would like him.
2: The next day he stole things out of the other monsters' desks at school. Then the other monsters said that his stuff looked like the items that were missing. When the girl saw that he had all of those things she decided to like him then.
3: The following morning he was called down to the office and Mr. Snorkel said, "The little monsters in your class said that someone..." "I DIDN'T TAKE ANYTHING!!", interrupted my Dad. "If you took those things, you need to give them back.", said Mr. Snorkel.
4: "Ok", said my Dad. So, the next morning none of the monsters liked him and neither did the girl. At lunch time they ate snails with pig juice. And my Dad sat all by himself.
5: The next day my Dad wanted to share something with the class. Mrs. Goblin said, "You're next." My Dad walked to the front of the room with a piece of paper and read the following: "I'm sorry for taking your things and I won't do it again." Just then the girl walked up to him and kissed him on the cheek. My Dad says thats how he and Mom got together!
6: My Dad also told me very good advice, "Your friends shouldn't like you for what you have, they should like you for who you are inside." That's my story I wanted to share with you. I hope your lunch is better than snails with pig juice!! the end
