MISTER BEETLES MANY ROOMS


Mister Beetles many rooms Written and Illustrated by Robert Magnuson Published by Adarna House, Inc. 2004

SUMMARY
The story started with Mister Beetle finding a house in a middle of the field. It was a small plant with five branches; he immediately claimed the tree, along with its five branches , as his and even made a sign to in front of it. He was awakened by a sound of guitar by a cricket who was sitting on a branch, a sixth branch, which Mister Beetle never saw before. Since he only claimed the five ones, he did not have much to argue with. Then, as rain and shine goes by, more branches sprout out of the plant. Along with the appearance of these branches came more neighbors. Mister Beetle got irritated and decided to leave. As he was leaving, his neighbors made him a surprise party for the first anniversary of him finding the plant. They thanked Mister Beetle, and he felt happy. Eventually, he had appreciated the plant and its many branches and most especially his neighbors.

A SPIDER STORY
A Spider Story Written by Germain Yia Illustrated by Liza Flores Published by Lampara Publishing House Inc., 2004

SUMMARY
Bella the spider was envious of the other animals homes. This inspired her to make an extraordinary web. She searched for the perfect material for her new web. She used hair she found in a parlor, a chewed up bubble gum she found in a store and left over spaghetti. She tried to make a web out of each of these materials. However, she figured out they werent the right material for a web: when she twirled around her web made of hair, each strand started to break; when she stepped on her web made of bubble gum, she found out that it was sticky and in no way comfortable; her spaghetti web instantly became dinner for some rat. This saddens her and as she thought of where she would go, she saw the perfect web: the one she made; her real home. She realized that she had made the perfect web after all.
