MoonStars: Chapter One

If you missed last week's big announcement Child # 1 is going to be my guest blogger for the summer.  You can read the full introduction here:  http://www.johannagarth.com/2011_05_29_archive.html   If you don't have time to click on the link the quick explanation is Child #1 is writing a serialized story called MoonStars.  Today is her first installment. 

How many worlds have you been to?  Well, there's more than earth.  Do you know that I come from MoonStars?  You may sit here reading this story but these choices depend on you.  Have you read a book before?  Well, what if you were reading a book that was scary and it was about a crab that was grabbing you?  Did you feel it?  Was it real?  Probably, it wasn't.  Those books are safe.  Now, when you read this story make sure not to go in monster lava.  Many people have died there.

This is how the story begins...

Islya (Ees lie a) Sickle was walking down Parkside Ave.  She was going to the library to return the book Mist Fog but soon this strange old man came out of the library. 
"Come here, Islya," he said. 
Islya didn't know how this old man knew her name or wanted to be with her.  But she did go to him.  "Keep this," he said handing her a wand.  "This is how you get to MoonStars." 
"What in the world is MoonStars?" said Islya.
"MoonStars is the planet you are from plus it's a whole 'nother world.  Everyone must visit the planet they are from."
"Well, how do I get there?" said Islya.
"You'll know the way and do not return that wand.  I have nothing more to say then you Must Go Now."

That's the first chapter.  It's short but, as Child #1 pointed out, so are the Chapters in Holes.

This is very good, I can't wait to see how Islya gets to MoonStars with her new wand.

I can't wait to see what happens next!!! I wonder what the wand looks like?
Is it a harry potter type wand, or more fairy-princessish?

Christine-Thanks! You'll just have to see in the story

Lizy-This story won't tell you. Remember what it said at the beginning. Every picture is secret! You just have to use to your imagination. But if you read the whole thing maybe I'll send you a picture.

I am so incredibly impressed by how well child #1 writes! I will show the story to my #1 Child and see if he gets inspired by yours!
This will be a fun thing for us to do this summer, it'll be much like what Charles Dickens fans felt like, waiting for his next chapter!!! Good job Child #1!

Child #1 is a total rockstar! I wish I would have started writing when I was young, alas I started last year. Child #1 will be leaps and bounds ahead of us all soon!!
