FC: The Knut Crakker Menace | By: Jackson Gilbert
1: The Knut Crakker Menace | This book is dedicated to my family. No Nuts were harmed in the making of this book.
2: "Run away!" screamed a terrified nut. | "It's Knut Crakker! We need help!"
3: "Aiiieeeeee!" yelled a heroic voice. "What was that?" said Knut Crakker. "It's me..." said Pistachio Nutt, swinging in on a rope. | "...and I'm here to save the day!"
4: As Pistachio swung in he had no plan in his mind as to what he would do. Instead of helping the situation, Pistachio was knocked to the ground.
5: Right then, Knut Crakker picked up a nut and put it in his powerful jaw. | NOOOOO!
6: Pistachio struggled to stand up and reach the endangered nut only to hear a crack and be hit by the debris from the crushed victim.
7: Pistachio was knocked out--totally shell-shocked! | "Uhhhhh."
8: He woke up a week later in a hospital bed. Pistachio was the freshest rookie at the P Nutt Gallery (PNG), the agency dedicated to "cracking down" on all senseless nut crimes and brutality. Pistachio had dreamt of working for the PNG since he was a kid. He had only been on the job for 7 months, but this was his fourth hospitalization. Everyone at the PNG knew he had a lot of heart underneath that salty shell, but, like many California nuts, his brain was dry and roasted and Pistachio was always rushing into dangerous situations without thinking!
9: As he recovered at home, his general, General P. Nutt himself, gave him a visit.
10: Pistachio invited him in to sit down. General P. Nutt had some bad news. General P. knew that Pistachio was trying to prove himself by going after Knut Crakker, the most wanted Nut terrorist alive, but as long as Pistachio refused to think before he acted, General P. knew that he was a safety risk and of no good to the P Nut Gallery. | General P. told Pistachio that the little stunt he pulled cost him his job. He told Pitachio that he had been fired.
11: Pistachio was crushed! "Maybe I'll feel better if I play a little shell game on the computer," thought Pistachio.
12: While messing around on the computer, Pistachio found himself shuffling through old leads and information he had collected from his work at the PNG. He was reading about a man named Rekkarc Tunk who bought a mansion and was thought to be stock-piling terrorist supplies. Pistachio got up to get a drink and saw his computer screen reflected in a mirror. Could it be? "Rekkarc Tunk" was "Knut Crakker," the notorious villain, spelled backward.
13: And then something happened to Pistachio that had never happened before...he could feel a plan developing!!
14: It was Christmas time, the height of nut crimes season. Nutcrackers seemed to crawl out of the attics this time of year, so Pistachio knew that Knut Crakker would be at his boldest!
15: Pistachio went to the mansion and used a grappling hook to get inside on a balcony railing. As soon as he got inside he saw how huge it was. He saw a lot of equipment, but, best of all, he saw Knut Crakker!
16: All of a sudden, Knut Crakker moved toward Pistachio. Pistachio fought hard from room to room in the large mansion, but was still overpowered and caught in Knut Crakker's gigantic hands. Knut Crakker put Pistachio in his mouth--ready to crack him!
17: As Knut bit down on his victim, he heard two sounds: the sound of splitting wood and the sound of Pistachio's voice coming from the other side of the room. "Looks like you've been caught in my little shell game, Knut Crakker, but this time YOU'RE the one who's cracked!" Knut turned in horror as he realized what had happened. Before dropping in on the villain, Pistachio had set up stone decoys of himself in several rooms throughout Knut's mansion. Knut had chomped down on a Pistachio that could not be cracked!!
18: Knut Crakker fell over, dead and Pistachio was not harmed at all. | X | X
19: General P. Nutt arrived at the scene after a neighbor reported a commotion. General P. found Pistachio there and Knut Crakker laying there, dead. They returned to PNG Headquarters where Pistachio was reassigned to duty and given a medal for taking down Knut Crakker. A few decades later, Pistachio Nutt retired and his son, Cash Hew Nutt, was hired to replace him!
20: The End?
