Ellie the Elephant

By: Carson Craft

Story

The time had come, it was the middle school basketball tryouts. Ellie the elephant spent all year practicing. She was ready to show Coach Fox what she could do. Coach Fox walked into the gym and laughed, "An elephant on my team, you got some guts showing up here!" Coach Fox was known to have only the best on his team. Ellie did not appear to be the best.


No one passed the ball to Ellie, no one would give her chance. Ellie felt so mad she ran up to Mary the monkey who was the best player there was on the team. Ellie then stole the ball from Mary and shot a 3 pointer. Everyones jaw dropped to floor. "See, see what i can do, just because I'm an elephant doesn't mean I shouldn't be able to make the team!" Exclaimed Ellie. Coach Fox walked over and handed Ellie her new basketball jersey and said "Welcome to the team!" Coach fox learned that you can never judge a book by its cover
