Wacky Story: Attack of the Muffins

By: Gavin, 9, Drexel Hill

 One time there was this lady who loved muffins, so she cooked some. When the muffins were in the tin they said, “Oh no, we’re gonna be cooked like muffins!”

The lady had a robot arm and a peg leg.

The muffins tried to get out of the oven.

“We have to escape,” one said.

 “I know,” another agreed.

 Then, they did get out. The lady was so surprised, that she jumped three feet in the air.

 “Ha! Ha! Ha!” the muffins shouted. “Breakout!”

 The muffins were so angry, they kicked the lady into the oven.

 “Aaaahhhhh!” she screamed.

 “Yay!” the muffins cried.

 [Mom’s warning: feel free to leave this line out – it’s a little violent]

Then, they turned the oven on and she got cooked.

 The muffins decided to explore. But, the house was a mansion.

 “This house is really big,” said the head muffin.

 “Then we’ll talk on walkie-talkies,” one said.

 “Yay!” the other muffins said.

 So, the muffins split up and looked for an exit.

 Some found a big indoor swimming pool. Others found the game room with a giant T.V. One found a huge bed and watched T.V. Another found a bathroom and brushed his teeth and gargled.


 They found the door and started running around the city. They went into all the bakeries and started hitting the bakers with their muffin arms.

 The muffins opened a coffee shop that made them a million dollars.

 The End


Do you think the muffins were a little harsh? We’d like to hear what you think.

Reading to the Second Graders

I had a fun time reading “The Power of Ninja” to the Second Graders at St. Bernadette’s School. Thank you, Mrs. Slattery for inviting me!

It made me so happy to hear a few of the students are going to be writing their own books – and already have the titles.

Bobby is going to sign a few copies. Winners will be pulled from the Terrific Ticket bucket. Good Luck!!
