Well, a few months gone by and continuous growth of my pile of rejection letters. Why, why can I not make it in the world of children’s publishing? I seriously don’t know what I’m doing wrong, I thought Wilfred the wolf and the teenage pregnancy was a shoe-in, but no apparently there are questions regarding taste.
Anyway, keeping with the idea to deal with issues relevant to children, I was inspired this year to write a children’s book about bullying after N-dubz were dropped from a governmental bullying campaign. Honestly, I would make a perfect representative for anti-bullying among kids, and now I’ve got the material to back it up. See what you think
But as they were getting to school, Sally’s parents had something to say that made her feel funny.
“Now sweetheart” said Daddy snake “You be careful! Some kids don’t like us snakes, don’t let anyone push you around”
“…um, okay”, said Sally, feeling nervous now.
She went in excited though and found her seat in her brand new classroom.
“What are you meant to be?” asked Helen the horse “You don’t even have any limbs”.
“I bet she’s really stupid too” said Otis the owl. “My mummy and daddy say I could be a famous scientist. I bet she couldn’t even serve MacDonald’s since she’s so slimy”.
“Now now class, settle down” said Mr talking banana type thing as he came in. “Lets begin” he said.
But Sally was running from the room crying her eyes out and Mr talking banana type thing didn’t even notice.
She sat in the toilet crying for hours and didn’t want to go back to class because she didn’t have any hands to dry her eyes.
When she had finished crying, sally went out to break but she was caught by those bullies when she came out.
“There she is” said Otis “the weirdo, lets get her”.
Fred the ferret pushed Sally’s face in the mud.
She was very upset and started crying when Otis the owl started pecking her head.
“Crybaby!!” shouted Helen the horse.
Sally was very unhappy when Daddy snake picked her up from school later but she didn’t want to tell him about the bullies as she was too upset.
Sally sat in bed that night thinking about how she could deal with the bullies. She knew what she would do tomorrow.
The next day she headed to the woodwork classroom.
“Hey, wonder where that weirdo is,” said Otis the owl as class was about to start when all of a sudden, Sally came in.
She had a chainsaw in her mouth and looked all cross.
“…um…what is she doing with that?” asked Otis, but it was too late.
Sally was already busy taking care of Helen the bitchy horse.
Sally slithered over Helen’s corpse happily.
“This is fun” said Sally as she took care of Otis
and Fred the ferret.
But Derrick the cute innocent little duckling accidentally got killed in the confusion when sally dropped her chainsaw.
Sally was shocked at what she had done.
seriously, this is getting ridiculous, why does no one want to publish me?
