The Night Owl Rooster at the Early Bird Barnyard 

Rooster is a real "night owl".  He loves to stay up late partying with his roommates Raccoon and Possum.  They watch TV, eat potato chips and popcorn, and drink pop.  They sometimes have a blast just hanging out at the mall.  But Rooster needs a job if he's going to keep wearing expensive clothes like that shiny red jacket.  Meet Bull, the snorting farmyard foreman with his crew of milking cows and egg-laying hens.  And there's a problem.  He needs to hire a trustworthy rooster with a strong cock-a-doodle-doo!  Will Rooster be able to break old habits?  Can he become a dedicated worker?

The Cotton Candy Trees of Cottonwood Elementary

Everyone has heard of Cottonwood Trees.  Afterall that's how Cottonwood Elementary got its name.  But Cotton Candy Trees?  This is just plain silly.  The kids can't wait to get out of school each day to eat the Cotton Candy right off the trees.  But that crazy gopher looks this way and that; and if no ones spots him, he will eat all the Cotton Candy right out of sight.  Things look pretty dismal until the kiddos have a splendid idea.  Let's paint fake cotton candy trees.  "Yuk! Gag! Speuaat! That's not Cotton Candy.  Ugh-huh, ugh-huh, you got me kids!"

Johnny Wants Chocolate Pie
Boy does this kid love chocolate pie!  Mom and Gramma can't keep him full.  Chocalate pies as big as wagon wheels?  Are you kidding me!  This is downright sillyness.  A chocoalate pie as big as a house, with helicopters for blenders and firehoses squirting whipped cream?  Maybe that'll satisfy Johnny's hunger.  This fanciful tale images the ever expanding grocery list of teenage boys.  Boy can they put away the food!

The Ooshey-Squishey Pig
Oh man is that pig a real slob!  He's always wollering in the mud.  And when he does he says, "Ooshey-ooshey-ooshey....Squishey-squishey-squishey.... the mud feels so good!"  But that old pig has a tender heart and likes to help people out.  Just goes to show, even though first impressions are lasting, they're not always the greatest indicator of worth.  We can learn not to judge individuals by their appearance but by their worth as persons.
