  • ReadingbySamantha Thorn, Age 11

    In the land of dragons, in a cool mountain cave, I dance with the elves, who never behave. I've shaken the queen's hand, sat in a giant's pocket. Started a band, and received a golden locket. Back to reality, I take a look, and suddenly realize I was reading a book!

  • LETS HAVE A GREAT YEAR!
