The Gumdrop Castle
Jim sat down to read a book he got from the
library. It was called The Gumdrop Castle. The book
was a fairy tale about a family who lived in a castle made entirely of
gumdrops. The castle sat high upon a grassy hill in the
make-believe town of Candy Land. The family members were Gummy
the dad, Mummy the mom, Timmy the son, and Tammy the daughter.
Chapter 1 began with an adventure in the
backyard. It was a very hot day and everyone in Candy Land was
worried. You see everyone in this make-believe town lived in
castles made of candy. There were castles made of peppermint
candy canes, peanut brittle and even colored taffy. All of the
castles were in danger because of the hot sun. They were afraid
their castles would melt and fall apart. The gumdrop castle was
starting to get soft. The red gumdrop roof started dripping
down the sides of the blue gumdrop castle. Gummy and Mummy
were very worried. They called their family and friends
together to ask for their help.
Jim was just beginning Chapter 2 when
his mom called him for supper.
