Your class will be writing ONE group paragraph(s) for the story (not each student). The first class will write the intro paragraph(s). Then the next class will read the paragraph(s) and decide how they want to continue the story. This will continue until the last class on the list writes the ending and gives the story a title. Your paragraph(s) will be typed onto this Wiki page. You will also need to send (email as .jpg) the 3 pictures to your Teacher Leader. The pictures should illustrate events in the section that your class wrote.

Please visit the Instructions Page for more information.

Please add your information to the chart. This way your classes can "see" where the story is traveling and have a chance to actually "meet" some of the students who collaborate on their story.

Title:
The Crazy Adventure to the Wonderful World of Odd


One day there was a lion named Kimba and his best friend, Melinda the giraffe. Kimba wasn't a normal lion, he was as white as a jar of mayonnaise. He was a vegetarian and did not eat meat. He was overly nice to everyone and couldn't stand up for himself when animals laughed at his colour. His best friend Melinda was just as abnormal,she was a giraffe that had stripes instead of spots. Everyday, she followed an agenda, she does her yoga stretches at 9:12am, and she eats her dinner at exactly 8:36pm. She was a perfectionist. Kimba and Melinda loved to have Disco dancing parties, but no one would show up because of how they looked and acted, but that wouldn't stop them, they would dance the night away. Sollux the cheetah, would watch from his cage. He did not like Melinda and Kimba. When he was just a cub, he was picked on constantly because he was the runt of the litter. He was bullied so badly, that he thought it would be okay to pick on others. Melinda and Kimba were the perfect victims for him. He would throw rocks at their cages, he would kick dust at Kimba and laugh when it turned Kimba ashen, he stepped of their toes, he tried to distract Melinda from her schedule, and he would put lady bugs into Melinda's food to mock her lack of spots. One night, as Melinda and Kimba were practicing their disco moves on their Just Dance 2 game on their Xbox 360, Sollux barges through the door and holds up the keys that his monkey ally had stolen from the zookeeper. He grins and begins to speak...

"I know I've hated you guys forever, but you are different, like me, and I am planning an escape." Kimba and Melinda looked up and dropped their mouths at Sollux. Sollux stated, "I want to go on a two hour trip to Vajing Supermarket. Just so you know, this market has the most tasteful food in the world!" Kimba and Melinda's eyes got as big and bold as a child opening a gift from Santa. "We'll go with you, we'll go with you!!!!!!!, they screamed! As Sollux turned the key to their cage, he showed them a key ring with three shiny keys on it. He pointed to the first key and said it was the key to all habitats. Then the second one. That was the key to the van. He didn't say anything about the third one. There was a long pause of silence. They hustled to the van and got on the road. Suddenly the van got slower and slower. They pulled into the gas station. Sollux pulled out the last key, then looked at a key hole in the gas pump and suddenly.........

Sullux twisted that shiny, gold key into its hole. He hastily jumped backed into the van and the magic started. The van soared into the air in a swirling motion and landed in the WORLD OF ODD. Melinda, Kimba and Sollux were greeted by purple panda bears and were astonished by what they saw. They now were surrounded by ice cream trees, angry birds, gingerbread houses and other oddities. As they strolled along the lego brick road, they saw a sweet smelling skunk playing cards with a yellow zebra. They spoke to a moustached turtle wearing a tuxedo and a top hat, and even sang and danced with an elephant with black dots. All three of them soon realized that.........


Every animal was different just like them. Suddenly they hopped out of the van and started eating the ice cream trees. After they ate the ice cream trees they went into the gingerbread house and saw a witch. It was a nice witch so she gave them all candy and let them leave. After they left they went into the van and ate the candy that the witch gave them. Then they soon realized that their van was sinking in black liquorice sand. Then a moon bear name Desmond saved them from the quick sand. They quickly became friends with Desmond and he joined them on the walk down the lego brick road. As they were all skipping down the lego brick road they came across a rapid chocolate river with no bridge and sweedish fish with razor sharp teeth…..


In order to get home, they needed to cross the river. How would they do this? Kimba found one ice cream tree that they hadn’t eaten. They decided to knock down the tree and use it as a boat to cross the river. This was a hard task because only one person could fit in at a time. After Kimba crossed, Melinda stretched as far as she could across the river to grab the cone. Sollux was the next to cross and then Desmond. By the time it was Melinda’s turn, the fish had eaten the whole cone, so Melinda could not get across. Kimba, Sollux, and Desmond searched their side of the river for something to help Melinda. They found broken legos and marshmallows, which they used to build a bridge. Melinda was now able to cross the river. Once they were all on that side, they started to look for a way to get home. Sollux found a rainbow hole that they decided to go in. They swirled round and round when suddenly Kimba was jolted by a coconut. He woke up and realized that everything had just been a dream and ran to tell Melinda all about it.
