My 7 year old has just written this.  She said it will help me understand how she feels about school.  I don’t really know what to make of this.

The Monkey called Ben

Once upon a time there was a little monkey called Ben.

Now Ben had no friends.  The Lion didn’t want to be Ben’s friend.

Neither did Elephant nor Bear.  Tiger didn’t want to be Ben’s friend either.

One day, Ben came running home crying ‘Mum, Dad, guess what?  I’ve got a new friend, it’s Gorilla!

Gorilla told me I can come to his party!’.

On the day of the party, Ben got caught in a net.

Ben got taken to the human world and a palace.

He was announced as Prince Monkey.

After that, Gorilla didn’t want to be Ben’s friend anymore.

Ben wasn’t told at all.

Gorilla never ever ever ever never played with Ben ever again.

The two animals once forgave eachother.  And from that day on, nobody bothered to say no to being Ben’s friend.

And they all lived happily ever after.



  1. Maybe she used to have trouble making friends but now everyone is her friend since they all lived happily ever after. Just a guess!

  2. I don’t know, perhaps as her Mum I’m trying to read too much into it.

    I think I know who the Gorilla in the story is lol.

    Ah well, hopefully you are right and I’m just as I said reading too much into it 🙂
