I found an awesome rock on the beach that made me think of a seagull...named Stanley. I hope you enjoy my WIP: STANLEY MAKES A FRIEND.
This a picture book I am working on. :) I would love to hear your input. Positive or negative....it will help me write the best story possible.
Here are my first few words...
Stanley perched proudly on the edge of his nest, high in the white cliffs of Dover.
All the other sea gulls looked at Stanley's nest.
"How can you live this way?" Asked Sandy.
Stanley smiled. "Don't be sad. I can teach you how to decorate your nest."
Sandy fanned out her feathers. "You silly goose! I don't want to be like you."
Stanley scratched his head.
Sandy flew back to her very tidy nest.
Something shinny sparkled in the sun. Stanley dove down to the beach.
This would be a fine addition to his nest. Stanley slipped his beak through the loop and flew home.
"I will hang this near the front of my home. It will sparkle in the sun."
Steve glided into Stanley's nest.
"Ouch! What is that?" Steve rubbed his head.
"It's my new shiney thing." Stanley grinned.
"Well, it's rather dangerous," Steve snapped.
" I could help you find one for your nest." Stanley stood tall. He knew he could find almost anything.
"NO WAY! Sea gulls are not collectors."
Stanley's head hung with shame. Not one of his friends shared his love for treasure hunting.
Stanley slipped the sparkly round thing on his beak and flew away.
"I'm going to find a new home where a saving sea gull is appreciated."
Stanley swooped down trying to catch his shiny thing.
It landed in a beautiful green garden, right beside an old human sleeping in the sun.
Stanley landed behind a tree.
A small bird with a yellow beak landed right next to Stanley's shiny thing.
Clink, clink, clink. The small bird slipped Stanley's shiny thing on his beak and flew away.
Stanley followed him.
"Hey, you took my shiny thing." Stanley stood on the edge of a very well decorated nest.
"I found it near my bath."
"I dropped it as I was looking for a new home. It was the only thing I took with me." Stanley frowned.
"Why are you looking for a new home?"
"All the other sea gulls make-fun of me, for collecting things."
I am so bad about following blog hop rules...
I'm looking forward to reading your posts.
What are you working on???
