Monster Videos from Mr. Smith's Class
As an optional assignment, kids chose interested partners and worked on movie scripts to celebrate the spirit of the Monster Project. They used their powers of vision to "see" the main parts of their stories as though they were watching a movie in their minds already finished.

Mr. Humble's Class Stories -- St. Oswald's Primary - Burneside, England

It was a Friday afternoon; the time was 3:50 pm. I had left my reading book at school, so I thought I would go back and get it.
It took me five minutes to get there. At school I noticed that the lights had been turned off, but I thought I could see a person in the corner of my classroom. I banged on the window and the figure stared at me. It started to come over to where I was standing. As it came closer, my heart began pounding harder and I started to shake. The person in the room was not human ... it was a monster !!!
His head was a black hexagon, with bright sparkling purple and green dots. The right eye had popped out of its socket and the left was yellow and bloodshot. It had h-orr-ible ears with lots of bugs tumbling out of the tumbleweed spheres in colours of red, green and black. The monster started grinning and while it did this I examined his teeth; ten rectangular on top, twenty in two rows on the bottom (triangular, with more triangles poking out from the side ... how hard would that be to brush your teeth in the morning ?). But by the look of them, it didn't seem this monster brushed them at all ! Above all these ugly fowl teeth there were two revolting lips! They were pink and green checkererd in the shape of a frog ...
... Molly doesn't tell us any more about the monster she encountered (in fact we haven't seen Molly since a friend handed in this account !!!).

Old Eighty Toes of the Twenty-First Century
By Jack

Old  Eighty Toes of the Twenty-first Century’s cell phone ( he spells it Scel Fone) is the best cell phone for a monster who has 80 toes. A web with Darth Vader and a fly hippo on his tummy , a tail and an 18 inch neck.  The phone has bat wings to deliver text messages…to send a test message you write it out and put it in the phone,  next the phone flies to the guy you want to sent the message too….sure,  sure, it bites the dudes head off,  but you’d do it too if you ate heads.   It is a cool-dude,  check out what else it has: a pop out spider screen , a camera that literally captures people on film,  it has one eye,  the monster phone is 100% monster and 0% phone.

  Old Eighty Toes of the Twenty-First Century
By Jeffery

His Cell Phone is so scary
And his wings are not so merry.
He has a spider tongue
Some people think his is just wrong
He has dots on his nose
And he has eighty toes
He has flags on his arm
I hope he doesn’t do any harm.
He sometimes goes to the park
His dog always says, arf
When he gets a stomachache,
It is because he eats a snake.

The Spaceman and the Monster

The green monster came over the hill.  He thundered across the ground on his hairy feet and grinned at the spaceman with rotten, brown teeth.

“Help!” shouted the spaceman.  He tried to get away.  “Help! Help!”

The monster came after him.  It waved its arms.  It shouted and laughed.

“Don’t let it get me!” yelled the spaceman.

“Ha-ha-ha-ha,” went the monster.

  The spaceman tripped and fell over.  He tripped over a rock and fell flat on his face.  The spaceman didn’t realise he was being chased by a Cookie Monster.  The monster had an amazing sense of smell.  He could smell better than a dog.  He could smell a cookie from a kilometre away.  The Cookie Monster could smell a chocolate chip cookie that the spaceman had in his pocket. 

  As the spaceman fell down the cookie fell out of his pocket.  The spaceman quickly got to his feet.  His knees were bruised and grazed so he could only limp slowly away.  He thought that the monster would catch him for sure.  But as he glanced back he saw the monster stop, bend down and pick up the cookie.  Then, to the spaceman’s surprise, the heard the monster call out.

“Do you have any milk to go with this cookie?”

  By The Livewires,  Year 3 & 4, Puahue School , New Zealand .  (The first paragraph based on a story by Joy Cowley)

There is a monster under my bed - by Karen         
One day I looked under my bed under my bed I found a big furry rainbow clean monster. I was shaking because there was a big furry rainbow clean monster under my bed. AAAH! I screamed because the monster scared me that is why I screamed. So I prepared a rope if the monster came again I will catch the monster with the rope. The next day the monster came again I catched the monster with the rope. I pushed the monster to my mom and dad’s room and when I opened the door I showed the monster to my mom and my dad. When I showed the monster to my mom and my dad the monster was gone the monster slipped out of the rope. so the monster was running away from me. so I chased the monster and I catched the monster. The monster said "why do you want to catch me?" I said my mom and my dad don’t believe monsters or dragons or dinosaurs either. that is why I want to catch you. I said if you want to be my friend with me and the monster said yes. The monster was so happy to be my friend. I said to the monster if she wanted to sleep with me. and the monster said "yes I do want to sleep with you." The monster was so happy to sleep on top of my bed.
