The Monster
By Alice
As I was walking in the woods picking blackberries, I saw a humongous, devilish monster. The monster had a gooey body with thorns sticking out of its body. It was purple with a firesh, red color in his 6 eyes. His eyes were as sharp as a knife and 2 eyes grew on his forehead, another 2 grew on the side of his spiky face and the last 2 grew beside the 2 forehead ones. He had a very wicked grin on his spiky face and while he grinned, his dirty teeth stuck out sharply as if there were 100 big porcupines trying to get out of the monsters mouth and he also had 20 pairs of hands. On his hands, there were lots of fur and all kinds of sticky mud were on his hands. All of a sudden, the monster flashed its eyes and teeth furiously at me and stomped towards me with his 4 giant feet. As he stomped, the ground shook as if there was a huge earth quake.

Demented by a Dementor
By Andy
I was walking home and took a shortcut through the forest. There was a swamp, and out of the water slurped a hooded creature! The creature had freezing hands, the swamp suddenly froze… I felt all the happiness flood into the creature’s mouth like some water through a tube! Until all that was left in me was the worst memory in my life! The hooded creature glided on top of the ice. I couldn’t see its face. I know what the creature’s name was, it was a Dementor of Harry Potter! There was nothing but black, it looked like grim reaper except there was no scythe his body was black and he whore a black cloak. It had no feet, the arms of his cloak where ripped and so was the bottom of his cloak. I could see his sky blue hands through the cloak. I got a heart attack! The next thing I new I was in the hospital.

By Celina
I was watering my plants when I suddenly heard a growl. Then I turned my head and I saw a HUGE monster. He was at least 8 feet tall. He almost touched the sky. His skin had boils almost as big as a boulder. He was black but he was so dirty the only color you could see was brown. His mouth had teeth as sharp as knifes, his hot pink nose was pulled up like a pig, and his claws were sharp like it could kill me in one minute. His eyes were as small as a pebble and they were glowing and staring at me. As he walked, the ground shook. He was wearing a black cape with brown strips on it. Since he was so tall and I was so short I thought he was going to step on me.

As I was walking home from my play date at Annie’s house it was already 6:30 P.M. Then suddenly I saw a big blurry spot behind me. I quickly turned around and saw a big blue circle creature bouncing up and down. It felt as if an earthquake just happened because it was almost the same size as a bolder. It was holding a big sharp sword and it had 3 big black eyes staring into me and they were all in the middle of the monster. Suddenly, I saw a drip of saliva coming down from its huge brown lips and I knew what it meant. Then it showed its big sharp teeth that was green and smelled horrible. Then it started chasing me.

One day at the cave.
By Jasmin
One day, we went hiking and we decided to sleep in a cave. The next morning there was a monster at the entrance of the cave. He was about 10 feet tall. He reached the ceiling of the cave and his skin was the roughest and the scaliest skin I ever saw. It was lime green. The monster wasn’t wearing anything, but he was carrying a basket. It had very curly bright white hair with dark red horns with yellow dots coming out of his head. His two eyes were on the left side of his face. They were as big as a soccer ball and they were staring at me. His mouth was stretched across his face. One tooth as sharp as a knife was sticking out and had 4 furry arms, two on each side. He had ugly red dots around his face and his legs were thick as 2 people. Then there was a low rumble. I saw that he was walking as slowly as he could toward me. When I looked in the basket again there was a baby sleeping with a blanket.

Monster Story
By Jeffrey
I was walking along the beach when a monster rose out of the sea. The monster had two horns on his head, one sprouting fire, one sprouting water, it didn’t have hair, it had one mouth and every time he opened his mouth a rainbow ball would come out destroying everything in its path for one mile. The head was shaped like a ball too. It had one eye. Its body was covered in scales a deep golden color, its body was an oval shape. It had four hands one hand was holding a missile launcher. It had a tail the shape of a triangle and forty feet long. Every time it swished its tail he would move without shaking or making tracks in the ground. All of a sudden there was a loud click and the monster disappeared. After that I never saw that monster ever again.

The Monster
By Justina
I was riding my bike home from school. As I was almost to my house, I saw a figure as large as the tree beside it. Its skin was bumpy and rough with pointy splinters. The color of the monster was bright orange. It was not wearing anything and he was showing his small belly button. The monster had short, blue, furry hair. He had a big mouth and a small nose. A hundred flashing, bright eyes were all over his face and body. Every time he stepped on the ground, the ground cracked. The monster was not carrying anything. He looked like he was going to cook me for dinner. His mouth was watering and spit dropped on the ground as he stepped towards me. I was worried that I would be in the monster’s tummy and would never see my family again.

The Monster
By: Maya
When I was walking home from my friend’s house, I saw a small figure. The small figure was hiding behind a bush. As he stepped out from behind the bush I saw that the figure was a monster!!! The monster was as short as a pencil sharpener. The monster was as purple as a grape. Its skin was rough with orange boils all over it. It was wearing hot pink clothes and it had blue spiky hair. The monster’s nose was as long as an unsharpened pencil and its eyes were as small as a pebble. Its mouth was wide open and he carried a blue raw fish for his dinner in his wide open mouth. The monster was walking very stiffly and every time he stepped you could hear “BOOM!!!!! BOOM!!!!!” The monster had no teeth. He had a big scowl on his face, so I ran away.

A Disgusting Monster
By Michelle
I went camping in the forest with my family. We built a tent. I was boring so I went to the other side of the forest with my little sister. We played tag. Suddenly the ground began to shake. I thought it was an earth quake. When my little sister and I turned around, there was a huge monster! It was about 1 meter tall! It was fat as a big bear. It had a rough skin and some fur on his body. He was black. It had a spiky hair. Also it had 1 eye, 2 mouths, and 3 noses. The monster was holding a bat on his right hand. Then he began walking toward us. We were so scared that we screamed and ran away. We told my mom and dad we saw a monster in this forest. Then we packed things (also the tent) and we went back home. We never came to this forest again!

He started walking towards me. While he was walking the ground shook. His final step was 5 inches away from me then everything went black.

BY Taehee
When I was walking home from my friend’s house, it was dark. Suddenly…. Booooooooooooooooooom! What was that? I saw an enormous thing. It had gigantic eyes and its nose was watery. Its mouth was full of saliva! Boooooooooooom! Again! It was like an earthquake! I didn’t know what it was! Its teeth were all bloody and sharp. Also, the whole body had so many splinters that I can’t count them! When I saw his hands, his fingernails were sharp as a knife! The skin was purple. Oh no. Its poison! When the monster saw me, he ran towards me. It was so fast that he squashed as he ran. I took a deep breath. When air that I breathe went to the monster, the monster disappeared. I hope I am never going to meet that monster again.
