Saving the Village

Kaitlin Dinan

Fantastical Short Story

Setting: middle of winter

Main character: young boy without parents

Plot conflict: giants escape the caves of the mountains

Theme: fear & ambition


Two giants that escaped the caves of the mountains were wrestling. Snowballs were thrown and wind drifts rolled through the foothills of the valley causing an enormous avalanche. The avalanche completely destroyed little Johnny's village. The town was too poor to get big snow plows or snow blowers to clear out the snow. Snow was taller than some houses, doors were packed shut and windows were impossible to open. No one would be able to get out. So the question is, what happens next? Find out how Johnny saves his village by reading the story yourself! :)
