I wrote this for creative writing when I was in grade 2. There are no illustrations, simply text because I was going for “novel” and not “picture book”. I am surprised that psychological services were never called after I wrote this story.

The Mystery of the Murdered Kid
Once in a land called Monster Berry-Chew, there was a monster called Monster Berry-Chew.
He liked to murder and to pick out the brains and cut off heads. When he cut his nails he didn’t use ordinary scissors. He cut his nails with huge chompers. Now let’s get on with the story.
A very long time ago there was a girl who was hiking. Her name was Sue. She found a cave, a big cave, a big big big cave. Inside the BIG cave was a coffin. She opened it and there was Monster Berry-Chew.
Then he murdered Sue. He got loose and murdered three girls he loved.
When he found out he had murdered the girls he loved, he was very upset because now he was all alone.
Then he found one poor family. He brought everybody back to life, with his powers.
One night the townspeople went to check on Monster Berry-Chew. The monster was not there. They searched and searched.
Then somebody said “He is not here and he won’t be murdering people anymore.”
“You are right,” said the townspeople.
