I'm Sarah Silverman, and today I'm going to read "A Tale of Two Beasts," written and illustrated by Fiona Roberton. I was walking home from Grandma's house, through the deep dark woods, when I spied a strange little beast... Feep, feep, feep, feep He was stuck up a tree, and whining sadly so I decided to rescue him. Feep! "I will call you Fang!" I told him, and I wrapped him warmly up in my scarf, and carried him safely home. I gave him a lovely bath, and a gorgeous new hat and sweater, and a delicious bowl of fresh nuts. I made him a beautiful house, and gave him Lord Rex to play with. Lord Rex is her stuffed lion, it looks like. I took him out for lots of long walkies to keep him fit and healthy. And I showed him off to all of my friends, who loved him nearly as much as I did. -Ooh! -Amazing! -Awesome! -He's so cute! But for some strange reason, the little beast did not look very happy. In fact, he was looking rather hot. 'I hope he's not sick,' I thought, and opened the window to cool him down. But then something terrible happened! He threw off his clothes, leapt out of the window, and ran away as fast as he could, back to the deep dark woods. Fang! Feep, feep, feep, feep! I wanted to go look for him, but Mama had other plans. Dinnertime! Blurgh! Bathtime! Uuurgh! Bedtime! Grrrgh! I couldn't sleep. I missed the little beast, and wondered if I would ever see him again. But then a small furry shadow appeared at the foot of my bed. The strange little beast had returned. He seemed quite pleased to see me, and I began to think that maybe, just maybe... ...he wasn't that strange after all. I wonder why he came back? A Tale of Two Beasts, Part Two: The Terrible Beast. Tra la la la la, tra la la la la I was hanging from my favorite tree, singing happily to the birds when... Hey! I was ambushed by a terrible beast! Growf! She growled at me, and tied me up, and carried me off to her secret lair. She made me disgustingly clean, gross! and dressed me up in a ridiculous hat and sweater, and tried to make me eat squirrel food. Yuck! She kept me in a tiny box, with nothing for me to do and nowhere for me to hang from. She made me walk backwards, and forwards, and backwards again, for no reason whatsoever. She showed me off to a herd of even wilder beasts, who were just as terrible as she was. I had had enough! I made a cunning plan, and put it straight into action. a + b = freedom, yes! Growf! Woohoo! The deep dark woods, 1 mile Free once more! I raced back to the deep dark woods, before the terrible beast could catch me. Scritch scratch It was peaceful in the deep dark woods, a bit too peaceful perhaps. Silence. And also, a bit wet. In weather like this one could do with a nice warm hat. I snuck back to retrieve it under cover of darkness. The terrible beast was waiting for me. She seemed quite pleased to see me, and I began to think that maybe, just maybe... ...she wasn't that terrible after all. The end. I love this book. I chose to read this book because everybody has a different way of seeing the same thing. And that's how it is in life, with everything. The way you see something is completely different from the way your friend sees something, or your mom sees something. And to get to see both characters' point of view is cool.
