The Bee and the Hawk

One day a bee sat on a log. Then the bee saw a hawk swooping down.

“Stop!” said the bee “I have a better way to settle this!”

“Okay” said the hawk. “Good.”

“Okay” said the bee “Now, if you can scare that horse, then you get to eat me, but if I win, then I get to eat you, fair?” asked the bee

“Fair,” said the hawk. The next day the bee said

“You go first.”

“Okay” said the hawk.” So the hawk flew next to the horse and flapped his massive wings. But the horse did not fear the hawk. Then the bee swooped and stung the horse. The horse ran and ran.

“So, shall I eat you fried or boiled?” asked the bee.

“AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!” said the hawk as he flew away.

Fable Writing Contest winner; injoyinc.comMeet Anna A., 5th Place Winner in the Injoy, Inc. Fable Writing Contest. Anna is thirteen, and lives on the east coast. She likes reading, horses, and the color blue. If she were writing a story about her life she would be a horse because she is willing and able to do any kind of work.

Anna captured our attention with this fun fable about two unlikely characters who learn about the golden rule.

In the process of writing The Giraffe and the Alligator, Anna thought about how many people were not treating others the way they should. As 5th Place Winner, Anna won a copy of Shatterpoint Entertainment’s Jericho DVD. Congratulations Anna!

Fifth Place Winner: The Giraffe and the Alligator

by: Anna A.

The Giraffe was snacking on his ice cream when his mom called to him. As the Giraffe turned his head a breeze came and blew his ice cream out of the cone. The Alligator noticed the ice cream falling and devoured it as soon as it touched the ground.

When the Giraffe looked back, all he found was the Alligator sitting there licking her chops.

Find out what happens next!
