This week’s Vanleer Elementary School writer of the week is Brayden Osborne. Brayden is in the third grade, and this is his retelling of the story “Crickwing” through the character’s perspective.
One day an awful toad tried to eat me, but I quickly leaped away. Not before his tongue caught my wing and twisted it.
All of the creatures began calling me Crickwing. I love to make my food into beautiful sculptures before I eat them. Every animal steals my food.
One day I saw ants and picked on them. They captured me and were going to bring me to the army ants, but they let me go. After that I helped them stay away from the army ants. Now, I throw a big party, and they are my friends.
