Poems and Stories from Mrs. Richardson-Yeates' Class
Pinehurst Primary, Cape Town, South Africa

Wink-ex-tinct is Our Monster
by Nicole Wilcox, Grade 5c

He went by email to America.
There's not a lot of his kind left
They've been killed for murder and theft.
He's got bats on his horns, that're shaped like a buffalo;
His legs, all full of scars so he has to go slow.
His eyes are blood red and I'll tell you why-
He couldn't get to sleep, he was irritated by a fly.

His head is shaped in a star
And his nose reaches very far.
He's bats on his horns are called Mary and Lizzy-
They fly around all day, just to make him dizzy.
His toes watch me where ever I go-
Its freaky and he thinks I don't know!
But now he's trying to fly without any wings
Monsters like him are very stupid things!

by Anna-marie du Plooy

He is a very bad mannered monster. He came from
Zemby Zooty and he wore a Zon Zonk. He eats flies,
bugs and buggy kinds of things. He loves to work on the
E-Mail and likes to pick his nose! His toes can see
everything and he wears leather slacks, a tight leather
jacket and loves his cool sunglasses. He has to work on
his wool schork (school work). He likes to do ports
(sports). He loves playing eye-ball.
His favorite places are Mauritius and Montague.
He loves to roller blade.


by Angela Light

Wink-ex-tinkt as you might have guest,
Out of all the monsters was the very best!

His skin was green and blue,
It made you shiver when he looked at you.
That hair of his was red and orange flame,
It was this that gave him a lot of fame.
His horns were gold with bats on the end,
They had a very, very nasty bend.
His eyes were blood red,

And were stuck very firmly into his head.
His arms were covered with hanging skin,
Which badly needed a trim.
So that's our monster for you,
Don't forget he says " How do you do?"

Our Monster

Watch out!
I hear people shout.
Wink-ex-tinkt has just got out!
He was put in jail,
For eating up e-mail!
And for eating up human meat!
You should see his feet-
There are eyes on his toes,
And horns on his nose.
Oh help, he's after me..
He's freaky-he shouldn't be free!

Monster Talk
by Stephen Hulme

I was walking down the street one day
when a monster see, did I.
It said to me:
"You're well I see"
and then he waved goodbye.


by Amy Walker

Wink-Ex-Tinkt a funny fellow as you might have realized
he will give you quite a surprise when you win a prize.
He has a very funny belly-button inhabited by the most ghastly looking spiders
and they do a lot of cooking. It may be strange to say, but his favourite food is hay.
He has a booming sneeze, but his breath is just like a breeze.
His tail is long but he does not like to be wrong.
You won't believe what a sight he is when he is having a fight.

His knees are like jelly and he has enormous belly.
His stomach is blue and his friend's name Sue.
He was't very thin and his chances were't slim to join monsters inc.
He loves to scare and hates to share.
And thats the monster from end to end.

The Monster Named Blue Boy
by Mrs. Steinbach's 1st grade in Franklin Lakes, NJ

Once upon a time, there was a monster named Blue Boy. He could run very fast. He could jump very high. Because of his really long tail and his fingers, he could even fly. One day, Blue Boy was hungry so he decided to go running to hunt for food. While he was running, he saw his favorite food, tigers. He captured the tigers with a net, and brought them home to cook them. But, the tigers didn't want to be cooked for dinner. So, the tigers pretended to be dead. Blue Boy started getting the pot ready to cook them. He started calling his friends to invite them for dinner. Blue Boy was calling his friends, one of the tigers got his claws and cut the net. And then the tigers ran away. When Blue Boy discovered that the tigers were missing, he got really mad.

When Blue Boy's friends got to his house, they got mad because the dinner wasn't even there. So his friends went back to their house and got their food and brought it to Blue Boy's house. Blue Boy flew to where the tigers were and captured them all over again. The tigers were so heavy, that he had to jump back home, instead of flying. Then they all had a party, and they got happy again.

The next day, Blue Boy found a place that had flying lessons for monsters. He signed up so that his flying would be less wiggly and so that he could fly AND carry tigers at the same time. The End

Little Blue Spotted Hood by Ms Hargrove's 3rd Graders
Park Village Elementary, San Antonio, Texas

Once upon a time, there was a boy named Little Blue Spotted Hood. He was called this, because he wore a dark, midnight blue wizard's cloak. He was 15 years old. He was a powerful warlock. A warlock is a boy that has magical powers. One morning while eating their toad soup, his mother told Little Blue Spotted Hood that his Gramps was ill. The boy had not seen his grandfather in a decade. He wanted to take Gramps a magic potion that included bat wings, extra snake venom, slugs, and a drop of sparkling rain. He rode on his broom to his grandfather's haunted castle.


When Little Blue Spotted Hood was almost at the castle, he decided to walk the rest of the way. While he was walking, a mysterious wolf stopped him and asked him if he had a long way to go. Little Blue Spotted Hood said, "Not very far. I am going to bring this magic potion to my sick Gramps."

The wolf smiled a wicked grin and said, "Did you remember the pumpkin seeds?"

Little Blue Spotted Hood said, "What for?"

The wolf paused for a minute and then answered, "Why it is to make your Gramps young again."

Little Blue Spotted Hood said, "I forgot so I will need to go to the secret pumpkin patch to get some."

The wolf really needed that magic potion, because he had been sick for many decades. He decided he would trick this Gramps into giving up all that wonderful potion. He went to the castle pretending to be Little Blue Spotted Hood. The monster at the castle, who was Gramps' bodyguard because he had stolen something from Gramps and was sorry, answered the door. The wolf, pretending to be Little Blue Spotted Hood, told the monster that he was here to visit his poor sick Gramps.

The monster looked down at Little Blue Spotted Hood's feet and said,

"What big, hairy feet you have."

"I am practicing my wolf spell and I got a little hairy," the wolf replied.

"Well, what big ears you have," the monster responded.

"I was practicing my bat spell to hear Gramps better," the wolf said.

"What huge eyes you have," said the monster.

"All the better to see my Gramps," the wolf said.

All of a sudden, the real Little Blue Spotted Hood showed up. The wolf ran past the monster and found Gramps and held him hostage. The wolf said, "I'll get that magic potion yet!"

The monster realized that the first Little Blue Spotted Hood was the greedy wolf. He ran to protect Gramps. The wolf threatened to gobble up Gramps if he did not get the magic potion. The monster threw himself on top of Gramps not caring if the wolf got him instead. With Gramps safe, Little Blue Spotted Hood cast a spell and turned the wolf into a hideous monster. At the same time, the Gramps monster turned back into a human man. He had realized that it was better to help someone than to hurt them. He would never be greedy like the old wolf again. They lived happily ever after with their new monster bodyguard.

Stories from Mrs. Floth's 2nd graders
Omaha, Nebraska

Once upon a time there lived a monster named Mean Green Star Machine.

It liked to eat it's buggers, it's old skin, banana peels, toe nail skum

and fungus. One night after school he became alive and jumped off the

wall! He go into the teacher's and student teacher's desks. He got

into the student's tote trays and took off al the books on the book

shelves. Guess what he was looking for? FOOD!! He could have just

went into the lounge. He ate the student's glue and paper. At night he

sleeps on the dinosaur chair.

Once upon a time there was a monster named Golden Eagle. He lived in a

school. When the students left for the day, he came off the wall and

broke the tables in half. He went to jail for eating a student. He

broke out of jail and ate our teacher's Mrs. Floth and Mrs. Taylor. He

has very very very very very long fingers. He has a long long long tail.

There was a monster named Golden Eagle. I wonder what he does when we

leave the room. He probably goes stomping around the room. He's got a

long nose and his teeth are rotten. He's got five feet fingers so he

can reach all over the room. His has eyes on his feet so if he lost his

basketall he knows where it is easily. When he needs to sneeze you

better run away because he sneezes ten feet.

blue buggers come out with the sneeze!! Yuk!!

When we go home our monster comes alive. He walks off the wall. He

stands on our tables and wrecks our tote trays. He like to eat pancakes

and banana skins. He has a star head. He is all kinds of colors, like

blue, red, green, yellow and purple.

There are More and More Monsters
By: Allie P.

On October 30, 2002 I was sleeping when I saw something peek out of my closet. I didn't know what it was. I opened my closet door and I screamed as loud as I could. I was embarrassed because I woke my whole family. Then they decided to go back to sleep. It a very, very, very, ugly monster. It had eighteen eyes four feet eight arms [four on each side]. Its body was shaped like a doughnut. It was of me so I wasn't that scared of it. I told the monster to come out. So the monster came out.

Right behind the monster was eight little baby monsters. They were peeping like chicks. But a little bit louder. We all stayed up very late. I made the baby monsters a bed. The monster slept with me in my bed. We stayed up so late that we all stayed up till 12:00 noon. Then it was night and another monster came out of my closet. But that monster was the cutest monster I had ever seen. It had flowers for eyes and a heart shaped body. This monster was going to in five days. I could tell they were going to be very, very, very cute. Now I thought monsters wouldn't be that scary any more. I thought I might need a bigger room for all the monsters in my closet and lots, lots and lots of there baby's. Then I saw the daddy's that went to both of the mommy's and all of the baby's. It was three years from now. All the babies had grown up but they were still cute to me. Then the mommies and daddies died it was sad.

But the good news was that the baby's had grown into mommy's and daddy's. They were going to have babies in two weeks. I bet they are going to be cuter. Now I still need a bigger room for all the rest of the babies. Then there were a little bit scarier monsters come out of the closet. That night I had the feeling that all of the monsters had gone out of my room. I checked every room. I had already found the mommies and daddies. I just needed to find the babies. Finally I found all of the babies in the kitchen. They were all rolling around on the floor. They were trying to play doctor. Since they weren't actually playing it. I had to teach them. It was very hard to teach them. I could tell that I would never get tired of any type of monster. That afternoon I went looking for all of my monster friends. I couldn't find them any were. I looked inside and outside. I looked in the best and worst hiding spaces. But I still couldn't find them. I went in my room slammed the door and cried as hard as I ever cried before. I said to myself I wish all of my monster friends were with me right now.

Somehow my wish came true. All of my monster friends were with me in my room. It's like a dream come true. That had never happened to me in my whole in tire life. Now I was happier then I had ever been. I wish my life could always be like this. Sometimes it might be a little bit scary or sad. Maybe all my wishes will come true. That would make me the happiest child in the whole in tire world. I would be the luckiest child in the whole in tire world! My monsters must know what I always say. I can't believe I met those magic monsters. I love my monsters so much.
