  • Welcome to Storyline Online, brought to you by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

  • 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.
