Failing to Win: Middle School

When I was in sixth grade, I wrote and illustrated a children’s book about a homicidal teddy bear for a competition. It murdered my sister and had a glorious death itself. My hopes were high because I’d never seen such a children’s book. Alas, I didn’t win. The book is probably filed in my permanent record at the school.

    1. Haha, Graham! This really happened, but I wrote this post tongue-in-cheek. I try to hold back on the stories I write for my kids here, but feel like the content ends up being too mature sometimes.
