Catfish

Kitty opened the TV at 7:00. It was news time. Today’s news made kitty very excited. She really loved to swim and, she always liked to be a fish in the cheerful ocean. Today’s news said there was a NEW type of plant growing in the ocean. The plant looked like an octopus swimming upside down, and any animal walking on the ground that touched the plant that looked like an upside down octopus, would turn into a fish. There was a sheep called Mr. Baa. He touched it and already turned into a “sheep fish.”

The next morning, Kitty went to the ocean and she touched the plant, and she turned into a catfish. She found a piece of paper. It said “Rescue the Ocean.”

 

Cindy, age 11, from the IYWP’s Writing Gone Wild camp


"I have been an artist ever since I can remember. My childhood experience with my family’s relocation between and within Japan, Australia, and Romania, going back and forth between languages, I naturally found refuge in using my hands and making art. After adopting Portland, Oregon as my home for nine years, I currently reside in Iowa City, with my love Brien, spending my time between making art, drooling over vintage textiles, visiting sheep farms, driving through the endless cornfields and counting bunnies during morning neighborhood runs." - Sayuri
