We are reading classic fairytale stories these days as part of our homeschooling curriculum and today was "The Shadow", a story I'd never heard of which we all thought made no sense and was generally depressing.

I offered to my kids the option of writing me a better version of that story instead of doing math problems, and The Eldest jumped on the opportunity. Above is how she started her assignment. I think we may have a budding writer on our hands.

(Yes, the light you see is Mama beaming with pride, typos and all.)
