The Four Heroes in Haunted City

Once there was a girl named Sally, who lived in Haunted City. She used to live with her parents until they both had heart attacks and died while at the train station. They were at the train station because a big red tree had fallen and crushed their family home.

Sally was a normal girl, but a few days after her parents died, something turned her into a werecat.

She was now Sally the Night Cat! She had butterfly wings to fly with and could turn into a real cat, but didn’t realize she had these powers.

There were monsters and witches in Haunted City, and Sally wanted to save the day. But there was a problem, she was too scared to face them! She wanted to learn about them at Monster School, but she was made fun of for wanting to go.

There was also a boy named Bloodly Boy who had also lost his parents in a tragic accident at the train station. He wanted to fight monsters too, but he was also scared of them!

Bloodly Boy and Sally the Night Cat went outside to take a walk by the pond, where the frogs and jellyfish lived, to make themselves feel better.

They ran into a tiger named Anthony, who lived in the jungle. He had been forced into the city from his home. Anthony was with a good vampire, named Mary, who had lost her fang.

The four of them teamed up and went to the library to look for books on how to defeat monsters. In the library, they encountered a book monster that could disguise itself as a book. There was also a special book that could give them special powers that could turn them into dragons.

The next book they found told Sally all about her Night Cat powers and how to use them. She was starting to feel less afraid of monsters, but the book monster suddenly appeared and stole the book…

Dusty Donna & Jojo Potato’s Crazy Journey

One day Dusty Donna was invited to sing on a fancy yacht. When she started singing, the audience realized why she was called ‘Dusty’ Donna. She spun around, covering them in dirt! The audience got mad and threw rotten fruit at her. She was on this ship because she had been expelled from school, after 17 years without a bath!

Jojo Potato, Dusty Donna’s friend, was hiding backstage with all his magical potato friends. Jojo Potato was wearing his favorite shirt with a mouse on it. He had potato chip hair that he snacked on sometimes, but it always grew back!

As Dusty Donna was singing, a giant octopus attacked the ship because it came too close to its octopus babies. Jojo Potato fed the octopus his most delicious potato chip which made the octopus dance with joy. It danced so hard that it poked some holes in the ship with the spikes in its tentacles. The yacht started to sink!

Jojo Potato wanted to get everyone to safety, so along with his friends, he created a potato boat to get everyone to the desert island.

Dusty Donna and Jojo Potato arrived at the island and saw a giant volcano with lava coming out! They also noticed big, ugly, mean monsters that smelled like rotten eggs. It looked like the monsters were protecting something next to the volcano.

Dusty Donna figured out that they were protecting treasure that she thought would make her clean. She had been dirty for so long that even a normal shower would not do the job! Her dream was to sing her beautiful jazz music without the audience throwing fruit at her. She headed toward the volcano to get the treasure.

Meanwhile, Soda Man, who lived underneath the volcano, threw two cans of soda into the mouth of the volcano. This caused it to erupt in a giant wave of soda! Inside of the volcano lived unicorns, mermaids, and a lochness monster. A giant explosion of soda carried them all out of the volcano, and they began fighting the monsters guarding the treasure!

Dusty Donna and Jojo Potato were also trying to get the treasure, but they were caught between all the magical creatures and the giant monsters…

This was happening in the fairy world called Castle. In this place there was a bookstore called Work Shop. The queen’s name was Cadenza and the prince was called Shining Armour.

While the fairies were fighting the sharks, a volcano exploded and the whole planet started turning into lava and a lava dragon flew out of the volcano. The dinosaurs were defeated by the lava. Maurice began to feel worried because she feared her family might be destroyed by the sharks and the dragon. Maurice’s family began to feel angry and sad because they wanted to protect the magical books.

Then, it started to rain, so the sharks were able to swim on land! The sharks were swimming so fast, they made a huge wave so that they could charge right at the fairies! The mom and dad fairy flew to the lava dragon to battle him, while Maurice and her baby brother and sister tried to use the sharks to defeat the lava…
