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 me. The pictures should illustrate events in the section that your class wrote.

Monkey Adventures on Smalloween

On a dark, dark night on the planet of Quadrupleluple an alien named Luke was walking. He saw his friend named Jake. They were very excited because it was Smalloween. Smalloween was a special day when everyone on Quadrupleluple turned teeny, tiny. Suddenly, they saw a bright light in the sky.

Luke and Jake quivered as they looked up at the sky and whimpered, "Wha, wha, what is that?" The bright unidentified flying object appeared to get closer and closer. Luke and Jake made a run for it to a nearby boulder. They couldn't believe their eyes. The object looked like an enormous bright yellow banana that was about to land 20 feet away from where they were hiding. They were shaking in their boots and too scared to run. All of a sudden they heard a loud roaring sound, the banana had landed! Whoosh, the door opened as the banana split and out came a a huge hairy monkey. It's hair as black as coffee with only a few patches of bare brown skin on his face, hands, and feet.

The monkey sees Luke and Jake and starts to run toward them. Just then, Smalloween begins and they become teeny, tiny. But the monkey has a strong sense of smell and can still figure out where they are. Luke and Jake start to fly to their house and the monkey follows them. He uses his nose to follow them.

Luke and Jake get home and look out their window, but don't see the monkey. All of a sudden, the monkey pops up in the window and scares them. "Ahhhh!" they screamed really loud. The monkey busts the window and tries to grab them, but they're too small for him to catch.

Jake and Luke quickly flew towards the kitchen. Jake screamed, “I have an idea. Let’s find a big yellow, mushy banana and use it to guide the monkey to the Quadrupleluple Zoo.” Luke responded, “How are two teeny, tiny aliens going to carry a banana all the way to the zoo?” “I know,” answered Jake, “We can use my new super duper flying saucer!” Off they went to Jake’s room to fetch the saucer. They returned to the kitchen and loaded the banana on the saucer. All of a sudden the monkey got a whiff of the sweet smelling banana. Jake and Luke headed out through the busted window toward the zoo, trailed by the huge hairy monkey.

The monkey started to run faster and faster. He was catching up to Luke and Jake, but the saucer was flying at light-speed, so Luke and Jake were not at all worried. Thankfully, they were getting nearer to the zoo gates. The zookeeper saw them coming and flung open the gates. The crazy monkey kept following the mushy banana smell right into the primates exhibit! SLAM! the zookeeper shut and locked the cage door. The monkey was trapped.

Luke and Jake slowly lowered the saucer to the ground and threw the banana into the cage. The monkey was so content and happy to have that banana, that he forgot about chasing the tiny aliens. The monkey decided to look around at his new surroundings. Suddenly, he saw a woman monkey. Va Va Va VOOM! Sweet, thought the monkey- a honey bun in the tree right over there! He had found the love of his life, a beautiful woman monkey in the tree in the next cage. But how to lure her to him? He decided to ask the tiny aliens to help him.

"Don't be afraid of me anymore. I don't want to hurt you. I just want to meet that nice lady monkey next door, and maybe you could help me." said the monkey. "You are so tiny," he said, " that I think you could get your flying saucer and this banana through the cage to the other side and lure her back to this side, where I will be waiting to greet her. Pleease will you help me?" "Yes," they agree," but we won't be tiny enough to fit through the cage for long! Smalloween is almost over. We will have to work quickly!" Once again Luke and Jake sped off in their light-speed saucer, tilting and squeezing through the zoo cage, and dangling the mushy banana near the lady monkey. She was overwhelmed by the sweet banana smell, following the banana right back toward the man monkey awaiting.

The tiny aliens had finished their mission. They exited the cages with time to spare. When they finally popped back into regular size, they beheld a beautiful site- the two monkeys nuzzling monkey noses through the cage bars, and sharing one mushy banana! When the zookeeper noticed the instant attraction between the two monkeys, he moved the monkeys together into one cage. The planet of Quadrupleluple became famous for its primate exhibit. As you might have guessed, the monkeys lived in zoo bliss together, happily ever after.
