This is the third childrens book I wrote for my first grade son to read and it incorporates many of the words he is learning how to read and spell in school. I turned this children’s story into my blogpost so that other parents can share it with their children if they like it. I am trying to write one new book a week to continue to further his interest in reading. He tends to like the Fantasy and Sword and Sorcery genre as I did as a kid.
The Angry Ogre
An angry ogre lived in a far away cave.
The people were scared of his great temper.
One day a curious boy went missing from his house.
He went to meet the ogre and see for himself why he was so angry.
The boy traveled alone for many hours and arrived at the ogre’s cave.
A loud roar was heard from inside the cave entrance.
The ogre saw the boy when he entered the cave.
The lone ogre shouted “You will be eaten for coming here”
The boy who was not afraid asked the ogre “Why are you so angry, you pout like a baby?”
“Well, I have a huge thorn in my back and cannot get it out” roared the ogre
“I will help you” said the boy and then he said “lay down”
The boy used all of his strength to pull the large thorn from the Ogre’s back.
When the thorn finally was pulled out the Ogre shouted “Thank you, the pain is gone”
The Ogre told the boy that he would not be angry anymore.
With that the boy led the Ogre back to the town where the men could see for themselves.
The town people did not run and instead welcomed the Ogre.
The Ogre was no longer angry and was now a friend to the town.
