Once upon a time there was a princess in a tower who loved to read. Her name was Morgan. She loved to read big books, little books, Mystery books, fairytales, and so many more.
“I have read all of my books, and I have none left. I wish my knight in shining armor would rescue Me and take me to a library."
One day she heard a clip clop, clip clop. “My prince” she whispered.
As he got closer, his horse was rather big. As he got even closer she realized that the horse was a dinosaur, and the clip and the clopping came from a coconut.
“Hello, my name is Gage!” shouted Prince Gage.
“My prince, do you know how to read write, and what a library is?”
“No, I do not know how to read, write or what a library is.” said prince Gage.
The princess gasped “You don’t know what a library is! Get out of my site!” Princess Morgan demanded.
“But I don’t even know your name. What is it?” asked Prince Gage.
“My name is Morgan” said the princess.
And so Prince Gage left. Princess Morgan waited and waited and waited but day after day nobody came. Months went by and nobody came. One day a prince was coming. He got closer and closer. He was riding a white stead.
“Hello, my name is cooper.” said the prince.
“Hello, my name is Morgan.” she said.
“Do you know how to read, write, and what a library is?” asked the princess.
Prince Cooper replied “Yes, yes, and yes.”
“You are my prince.” Princess Morgan whispered.
And so Prince Cooper and Princess Morgan went to Sterling Grade School library for great books and they lived happily ever after. And Prince Gage ended up poor and living in a basement.
