So my eight year old is writing an epic fantasy novel

I’m in a crunch with my middle grade and had to work last night. It is just me and her at home when her brother is in bed, my husband is out of town. She brought her laptop to the couch and sat beside me and worked for two whole hours on this story. She has graciously allowed me to share her work with you. I hope this is the start point for her to become a non-reluctant reader. I think she has a future.

Amy, Justin and Willow were fighting the Dark King’s army, then one of the guys stole Willow and Justin in his big black ship and flew away. And Amy went back to the White Queen and told her the whole story, and she believed her. She said “Revenge, we will have!” And then a message came, it said: “Dear Amy, you will come to a dinner I had planned… or else I will kill your brothers.” So she went to the dinner, it had apples, turkey, pie, cake, carrots and peas but she did not like peas.

    This is such a cool paragraph. The detail is in the peas! There is so much symbolism in here.

    That is so cute! love “Peas, she did not like peas” – I agree with her wholeheartedly – Pea’s are the enemy!

    That’s awesome! “Revenge, we will have!”

    Also, I agree about the peas. That’s typical of an evil villain. They always serve peas. It’s how you know for sure they’re evil.
