Comet Does the Jig

By: Thomas M.
Pennsylvania, Age 7

Once there was a comet who lived on Mars. Well, he wasn't a comet yet. Day after day he was still there on Mars. He was still a rock. He rolled into space. Now, he was a comet.He traveled four thousand miles to earth. Two children found him. They picked him up and threw him at a tree. He broke in half, and he came out as an alien. The alien said, ''Hi, my name is comet. Would you like me to do the jig?'' ''Yes'', said the children, ''but first we have to go get our neighbors.'' The children went home and got their neighbors and they all had a jig party.
