How Penguins Lost Their Flight

By: Patrick H.

A long, long, long, long time ago there where penguins that could fly. They soared through the sky in Asia. One day the penguins had a race. All of the penguins were in the race. Whoever could fly around the world and come back won. “Go coach!” said Jacob who was in the led. Lee, Cole, Kai, Zane and Jay were behind Jacob. Jay asked, “What year is it?” Cole said, “1001.” Everyone heard a chirp, a schawk, and a caw. Everyone stopped in the Antarctica and flew down to see what it was. They slid down an iceberg. Oops! They broke their wings. They did not know where home was and they could not fly. To this day they are in Antarctica, trying to get home.
