Celebration of the Century

It was going to be the party of the century! The prince had told everyone in the town that he would celebrate his birthday at his palace. Everyone was invited and everyone was excited.

On the day of the party all of the people in the town came to the palace to dance and drink juice. There was also cereal with cinnamon sprinkled on top. There was even a circus with clowns riding bicycles. The prince gave out slices of pizza and danced with all of his friends. He was a graceful prince who always danced in the centre of the room. Later, the prince invited everyone to come to his cinema and they watched a funny movie about some silly police.
