.Humpty Dumpty Murdered?

Humpty Dumpty was sitting on the Eiffel Tower one day. He was singing to all of his fans from Paris. It was a hot, sunny day in the summer when suddenly he was pushed off the Eiffel Tower! He was tumbling and trying desperately to grab onto something. Humpty Dumpty was cracked. They gave him 187 stitches and will have to keep the stitches in for the rest of

his life. The crime scene showed that his cousin, Watermelondre, pushed him off because he was sitting on her Cotton Candy Frappe from Starbucks. She was arrested and they forced her to work at Starbucks. Humpty Dumpty lived happily ever after.

Movie Review

Toy Story

Are family movies for you? If so, Toy Story is a great family movie with a great story line. The main characters are Woody-Tom Hanks and Buzz Lightyear- Tim Allen. This action filled movie was made in 1995 by John Lasseter. It is a G rated movie for any age. The theme of the story is to never leave your friends. The author did a great job by having a good plot and theme with up and down moments. Lasseter also made Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3. Other characters in the story is Rex, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Slinky, Ham, and the toy soldiers. This movie is definitely a 10 out of 10!
