Why grass is green

By: James D.

Long,Long ago there was an old man living in a wood.One day he went out side to paint a bird house green when he was walking to the bird house.He tripped over a root sticking out of the ground.And he fell over and spilt the green paint on the little and thin sticks sticking out of the ground.And they all turned green.The thin stick god came and said ''Why did you spill green paint on my thin sticks!''Then the old man replied ''I'm sorry but I thick it looks great.''That is why grass is green.
