Write-Your-Own Contest Winners

We tried something new with our Book Review contest last month: We renamed it Write Your Own and asked kids to pen creative stories inspired by Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. We received numerous responses and loved reading about all the silly and unfortunate stuff that happened on these kids' imagined bad days. We picked four winners, each of whom wins a $25 gift certificate from Crow Bookshop in Burlington. And we chose one story to share, below.

"When I woke up in the morning, I knew it was going to be a bad day. First, I tripped on my own clothes. Second, I stumbled on the stairs on my way down. When I got down, my breakfast was cold. It was raining at the bus stop and when I got to school, I realized I hadn't done my homework! At math time, there was a test and I failed: 0 out of 30. At recess, I tripped on a rock and got a bloody nose. When it was time to go home, I forgot my homework at school and had to go back. What a bad day!"
